MegaMind starring Will Ferrell: DVD Cover In this animated adventure, Metro City is a thriving city center protected by the ever-powerful and efficient Metro Man (Brad Pitt) who keeps the municipality safe from its resident villain, the evil but hopelessly inept Megamind (Will Farrell) who spends his days launching shoddily conceived plans, like continually kidnapping attractive TV news reporter Roxanne Ritchi (Tina Fey). Finally, one of those schemes accidentally works when Megamind is able to destroy Metro Man.

But, our super-villain soon discovers life is pretty dull without a nemesis to share it with, so he decides to turn Roxanne's nerdy cameraman, Hal (Jonah Hill), into a superhero, transforming him into a powerhouse he names Tighten and who quickly decides to make up for a lifetime of abuse by using his new abilities for revenge. This radically undermines Megamind's plans for "balance." Meanwhile Metro Man is found alive but in no shape to resume his normal duties, so Megamind, with help of his longtime friend, Minion (David Cross), must summon whatever good he can to transform himself and save the day.

This is the second film, after Despicable Me in which the central villain eventually becomes a "good guy." Director Tom McGrath plays the twist on the superhero premise for all it's worth, emphasizing comedy and character but still providing plenty of fun and action in the mix. This could be Will Farrell's most appealing screen character since Elf, while Tina Fey plays equally effortlessly as the plucky Roxanne. Jonah Hill also gets the humor and goes for it with gusto, as does David Cross as the delightful Minion.
