Megamind – plot recap and discussion
The superhero film stands out in its premise. Although a superhero film, the film does not have a traditional superhero. The villain, in fact supervillain named Megamind is now bored. Because he has already defeated his arch-nemesis and hero of the town Metro Man and he has no one to feud with. So he creates a new hero from the remains of Metro Man whom Megamind himself blows up.
But the problem arises when the new hero created is in fact, not a hero. He self learns and eventually turns out to be narcissistic, deluded, and sinister. So in simple words, a villain. So Megamind now has to become the new hero which the town needs to stop the rebooted version of Metro Man. What follows are the battles and fallouts from the various events. The movie with a significantly shorter run time treats the story well and Megamind comes out as an entertainer and wholesome movie.
The movie gathered 10 nominations in various categories and got nominated for awards like The National Awards and The Comedy Awards in the United States. Critics hailed the movie for its nonorthodox treatment of the superhero versus supervillain trope.
Megamind – discussion
There can be several factors that can be attributed to the reception of the movie being as such as it was. First and foremost, the humor. The film and its humor have subtle undertones of adult humor(i mean the joke at which an adult would be smiling and nodding in agreement.). Animation films can get quite boring for adult audiences, per se parents. But a hint of adult humor with the jokes gets the grown-up hooked.
The use of physical comedy in its sequences with all the dialogues and stuff helped the movie entertain the kids. Small children can’t be expected to understand the dialogues and draw the narratives. Well executed physical comedy scenes i.e. funny faces, awkward dances, running, and catching sequences all got positive responses from the little audience. And the witty and clever dialogues are for the adults in the house. So everyone’s happy.
The pop-culture references also add up to the strong presence of the movie. I mean, there is no chance that you see a F.R.I.E.N.D.S reference while watching something and not call back the episode it belongs to or cherish the good memories related to the made reference. That’s how everyone would think. Hence the humor level, pop culture, and brilliant physical comedy delight and entertain the kids and the parents of the family, alike.
A superhero movie where the hero is not the hero and the villain is not the villain excited the fans from the basic premise itself. An unorthodox movie, the animated superhero movie is even dubbed as one of the underrated animated movies. So if not seen already, you know which is the next movie you are going to pick up to watch.
