Megamind... will blow your mind! Fun fun fun!
The plot is about two babies from a planet that develops creatures with strength and powers beyond that of humans. They both were saved from the destruction of their respective planets by small spacecrafts destined for earth. Metro-Man (Brad Pitt) ends up in the home of a loving family, and the blue-skinned, chrome-domed alien Megamind (Will Farrell) ends up in a prison for the mentally insane.
This charts their future course in predictable ways as Metro Man becomes the hero of Metro City, while Megamind chooses the path of evil. Their rivalry continues through the years with all of their battles resulting in the defeat of Megamind until one day Megamind succeeds in getting rid of Metro Man! Instead of being happy, Megamind realizes that achieving his life's ambition is the worst thing that ever happened to him as his life has no purpose now.
He decides that it would be best to invent a new enemy to cure his overwhelming depression as he needs a yin to his yang, someone to fill the void that Metro Man left. He decides to create a new hero opponent called Tighten (which is a misspelled moniker of Titan), who promises to be bigger, better and stronger than Metro Man ever was but things go hay-wire when Tighten starts to think it's much more fun to be a villain than a good guy. Now it is up to Megamind to become the good guy and save the day.
This is a refreshing change to the conventional super-hero, good vs. evil and allows for a more interesting storyline. Meanwhile Megamind is falling in love with a feisty TV newscaster Roxanne (Tina Fey) while posing as a nerdy museum curator. The movie thrives on the fast-paced wisecracks while making fun of most of the superhero movie clichés. Megamind shows so much heart that you can't just help but root for the guy (even if he was evil by design or by fate). David Cross is a hoot as Megamind's under-appreciated and aptly named sidekick/piranha Minion, a talking fish who drives an invisible car and uses an automated body to get around. The soundtrack is terrific also, bringing back memories of classics such as Bad, Highway to Hell, Back in Black, Crazy Train, Welcome to the Jungle and Bad to the Bone.
