Megamind 3D

Vocal theatrics have always been a go-to weapon in Will Ferrell’s comic arsenal, and his stentorian phrasing and melodramatic shouting is perfect for the title role in Megamind. Ferrell gleefully overplays an evil genius who quickly gets bored after unexpectedly defeating his saintly nemesis Metro Man (Brad Pitt). He tries to spice things up through a new rivalry and a romance with reporter Roxanne (Tina Fey), with results ranging from pathetic to disastrous. Ferrell and the rest of the voice talent, including Jonah Hill and David Cross, are excellent, as are the many movie and political in-jokes sprinkled throughout the script and the background visuals. While it lacks the eye-popping flair audiences have come to expect from animated films, Megamind’s smart story saves the day. –Matt Semansky
