A Blast from the Past: A Review of Megamind: The Button of Doom

2024-03-05

“Megamind: The Button of Doom” is a short, sweet, and action-packed addition to the Megamind universe. Released in 2011 alongside the original film, this 16-minute adventure throws our reformed villain, Megamind (voiced by the ever-hilarious Will Ferrell), back into the hero business with a hilarious twist.

The story is simple: Megamind, now Metro City’s protector, is cleaning house and decides to hold a garage sale to get rid of his old evil gadgets. One such gadget? A mysterious red button. Of course, curiosity (and maybe a touch of nostalgia) gets the better of Megamind, and with a single press, he awakens a giant robot programmed to destroy… Metro Man? Hilarity ensues as Megamind, with the help of his loyal (and often exasperated) Minion, must use his old villainous tricks to defeat the monstrous Mega-Megamind.

While the plot is slight, the short doesn’t overstay its welcome. The animation is crisp and keeps up with the fast-paced action sequences. The real star, however, is the humor. Ferrell perfectly captures Megamind’s internal struggle between wanting to be a good guy and accidentally falling back into his old patterns. Fans of the original film will appreciate the return of the witty banter between Megamind and Minion.

“Megamind: The Button of Doom” is a perfect example of how much fun can be packed into a short film. It’s a great watch for fans of the Megamind universe, offering a satisfying dose of action, comedy, and the lovable rivalry between our not-so-evil villain and his ever-faithful sidekick.
