It was ingenious. The movie parodied super heroes in a way no one ever did before... the villain actually starts falling for the news reporter he keeps kidnapping... the villain lives in a completely romanticized world of his own... I can't even begin to describe it. It was one of the smartest parody hero projects I've seen in a long time. I'm SOOOOO sick of every indie comic writer I bump into writing a comic where a nerd gets super powers and it's a (word for word quote from everyone I've ever met) "be careful what you wish for situation." NAH, Fool! Megamind torched your butts by being original. Plus, it's one of the movies Will Ferrel is actually GOOD in! Now, I love Madagascar for some reason, and I'm digging the Penguin show... but what completely bugs me is that they want to do 4 films, and only on the 4th film do they get back to New York. So basically the third one is pointless filler... heck, they shoulda started back for New York in the second one.
