Megamind is Dreamworks' latest CG animation which tells a loose allegory of the Superman/Lex Luthor eternal struggle, only this time ‘evil’ wins. Will Ferrell voices the titular character with typical verve, in a persona that adopts an evil visage to garner attention when young and when it works sets out his life on that path. Only when the chips are down, and he wants the girl, evil has nowhere to turn except to good. It contains some clever ideas and lofty concepts for what is essentially a kids action adventure, and had it had the strength of its convictions or an emotional element that involves the audience beyond mere spectators, it may have amounted to an extremely good film, as it is it plays it soft, slapstick and ultimately lame; whilst remaining enjoyable and watchable it's basically unremarkable.

As a 3D Blu-ray package it is finally fully commercially available and not tied in an exclusive deal, which mean everyone can sample the film exactly how it was originally envisioned; and it is a delight, the 3D picture is bright and bold with plenty of effects, both into and out of the screen. The sound mix has been given a slight boost bringing it in line with the reference picture, and whilst the extras are still the same naff material as previously available at least this set contains everything you need to make it a future proof buy.

Good review, i know its for the 3D version of the movie, but is the playback of the 2D disc still as bad as before do you know ? constant aliasing through out.

This entire presentation, from beginning to end is hampered by constant, relentless aliasing. It's bad folks. Real bad. Jagged edges and wavy lines appear in nearly every scene.
