Review by Matthew Toffolo

SYNOPSIS:

After super-villain Megamind (Ferrell) kills his good-guy nemesis, Metro Man (Pitt), he becomes bored since there is no one left to fight. He creates a new foe, Titan (Hill), who, instead of using his powers for good, sets out to destroy the world, positioning Megamind to save the day for the first time in his life.

Release Date: 5 November 2010

REVIEW:

Great concept. About the original story of a villain. I always wondered why they havenít done a live-action version of this concept using some of pop-cultureís favorite bad guys. Wouldnít people watch the origin story of say Lex Luthor, Magneto or The Joker? (to name a few). I think perhaps the villain stories would do even better box office than the superhero movie itself.

After all, most of us like the bad guys a lot more than the boring superhero who wants to have save the day. They are generally the vanilla characters. The villains always have layers of complexities and history has shown that people want to know more about the bad guys than the good guys.

Think about our obsession with serial killers. Or gunslingers from the old west. Or bank robbers. The 2nd most documented person (has had the most written about him) in human history is Hitler. The most evil real life human being in perhaps the history of mankind. (BTW - Jesus is the 1st). Forget about Batman, Superman or Spiderman! We want bad, not good. Watching people do bad things makes us feel good about ourselves because weíre not as bad as they are. And sometimes watching good people like Superman makes us feel bad about ourselves because we canít possibly be that good.

Tips from the professions!

So in the animation world, Dreamworks gives us MEGAMIND. The journey of a superhero villain who, because of circumstances, becomes a man who wants to take over the world because he feels that is his destiny. After all, why did he land on the prison steps when his parents put him in a contraption as a 9 day year old baby when his homeland was blowing up (ala Superman)? As his nemesis Metro Man landed on the steps of a billionaireís home.

In animation movies there is always a large theme that hangs over the film so the kids can leave with a profound thought. In the case of MEGAMIND, the theme (or lesson) of the movie is that life doesnít control your destiny but you control your destiny all by yourself (the religious people are going to hate this theme). And thatís Megamindís journey. He thinkís heís supposed to be evil but perhaps not!

There were some old movie trailers out there that promoted this film that didnít tell you very much. All we knew was that the main character was going to be the bad guy and not the good guy. They didnít give us much more. But then Dreamworks did something strange: they changed the trailer and told us that perhaps Megamind isnít as evil as we thought.

I wonder why they did this change of promotion. Were they receiving complaints? After all, this is a film geared for kids and usually kids movies donít have an evil guy as its main character. You donít want kids to think that being bad is a good thing, do you?

So with this trailer promotion switch, once again, we knew too much about the movie and it kind of ruined it for me. It bummed me out actually. There wasnít going to be any more surprises. Why Dreamworks, why?

All in all, this is a fun movie but not as great as I wanted it to be. Kids will like it though.
