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 Region free Blu-ray package Dreamworks has provided a sumptuous set, despite a few problems that plague an otherwise spectacular picture, a sound field that envelops the room and an extras package that informs as well as entertains, even if it too runs out of steam, there is plenty here to keep you entertained until the 3D version comes out.

My copy arrived from Movietyme today.

It'll be interesting to see if the forthcoming international releases have the aliasing problem.
