There is no Ying without a Yang, just like there is no day without a night; no right without a wrong and there certainly is no bad without good, and vise-versa. This the lesson that super villain, Megamind learns after he destroys his arch rival Metro Man.

Cliché hero and villain names aside, Megamind find his life devoid of purpose and meaning, and worse yet, he starts to fall in love. The bad guys NEVER gets the girl! And just when you think things aren’t turned enough on their heads, Megamind does the unthinkable in trying to genetically engineer a new Super Hero that will show up just in the nick of time to righten all the wrongs and finally put the city back together and bring it back to the glory and awesomeness that it once stood for.

What’s next, dogs and cats living together?

But in the end all isn’t what it appears to be. Megamind‘s attempts to create another Super Hero with Metro Man‘s powers leads him down a path from which there is no turning back. Tighten, Megamind‘s Frankenstein, instead of joining the side of good, turns to the bad side when he learns that the only girl he ever loved, Roxanne, is in fact smitten with Megamind. And in a city such as Metro City, there is only room for one bad guy.

Will good some how prevail over evil? Will Metro Man somehow return from the grave to save the doomed city and it’s citizens? Yeah right, that only happens in real life, not in the movies.

Megamind, for the most part, was a decent movie. It had its slow parts, but it had it’s funny parts too. And if there is one thing you can say about the story that is always a positive in my book is that it was creative and well thought out.
