Movie: Megamind (2010)

Rating: C-

There was still 8hours on my flight back from Hong Kong, and I had run out of movies to watch. I had watched every single movie that I had wanted to see, and the fat snoring guy in the aisle seat had no intention of waking up. Flipping through the pages of movie selections, I came across a big blue head. No, it wasn't the Smurfs. It was......MEGAMIND

Unfortunately, it starred Will Farrell. While some love his antics, I find him fairly annoying. Especially when he starts shouting and yelling. There seemed to be a lot of it here. The movie was amusing enough, with some small chuckles here and there, but it never gave you reason for bellyaching laughter. And the same goes for the movie as a whole. Mildly entertaining, but entirely formulaic. Nothing inspiring and nothing new.

While you do finish with a smile, it just seems to be a waste of such an all star cast. Tina Fey, Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, David Cross, and even Ben Stiller. And yet, none of their performances were memorable. And I hate to say it, but if it weren't for Will Farrell, Megamind would have been a MegaDisaster.



  1. We saw Megamind on our flight to Paris too! CI and I both love it! We thought it's a funny animated movie and that's what it should be because it is a light movie, possibly with younger audience in mind. Without an all star cast, the movie probably would not hit top box office but it is entertaining enough! :p

  2. rated PG is right. it's pretty traumatizing for a kid to watch.

  3. *blink*....traumatising? You're talking about Brad Pitt's singing right? =)~
