Movie: Megamind

Movie: Megamind

Will Ferrell leads this digital animation piece. The 3D adds little or nothing to it (except to the ticket price), and though only 95 minutes long, it felt like it had about 15 minutes too much in there. Enjoy the trailer: it has the majority of the jokes (with the exception of pronouncing “Metro City” to rhyme with “atrocity”) and gives a better sense of the concept’s promise.

Yes, there are loads of pop culture references – Superman (Marlon Brando as Superman’s father), Zoolander, the Incredibles, and David Cross is great, but in general, there’s not enough substance for a whole movie here.
