Not the best movie it is okay and does not make scene

The animation is nice, but the plot is run-of-the-mill.

I was reluctant to watch it and decided not to. But I recently caught this on tv and gave it a try and loved it. It really was epic. But the ending was shocking... Hope it has a sequel in which it all works out.

Not as bad as the 5th Ice Age film, but still pretty bad.

Nice fantasy animation which is bright, vivid and smooth. Teenager Mary Katherine "MK" (Amanda Seyfried) mum just passed away and she have to go to a secluded forest house to live with his researcher dad Bomba (Jason Sudeikis) who spend many years trying to find tiny living human of the forest. MK leave when she feel unable to connect with the father. In the forest there's really 2 different groups of tiny human. The good Leafman and evil Boggans. Queen Tara (Beyoncé Knowles) chooses a pod to inherit her healing powers. Ronin (Colin Farrell) is the warrior protector. Mandrake (Christoph Waltz) the evil king send his son and army to steal the pod during the ceremony. Ronin kill the son and save Queen. She was hurt by the arrow and MK who is nearby and saw her got hold of the pod and shrunk to their size. Now Ronin and warriors must protect her and the pod and consult the wise Nim Galuu (Steven Tyler). Nod (Josh Hutcherson ) is a young warrior that doesn't like his job. Ronin find him in the race arena and inform the Queen is dead. A slug and a snail Mub and Grub (Chris O'Dowd & Aziz Ansari) tag along the journey. Mandrake ride from underground to the sacred place and steal the pod when Nod and MK are outside enjoying the forest. Ronin is angry that a simple task for Nod cannot be done. Mandrake want the pod to bloom in darkness and replace his son. Ronin need the Boggans gear to infiltrate safely to their HQ. MK bring them home to take what her dad found. Ronin said they been misleading him to find the wrong part of the forest all these years. When the pet dog keep chasing after MK, Bomba use the vacuum and suck her in. He fainted when he saw her and the jar broke. She pin the location of the Leafmen HQ at the map before leaving. The trio manage to get in. Ronin distract them all and let MK and Nod save Mub and Grub and the pod. Ronin sacrifice himself for them to escape. Back to the HQ, they are waiting for the moonlight to bloom the pod. But the Boggans form a cover to block the moon and Mandrake attacks in. Totally outnumbered, MK need to get her dad's help. She go to the sensor camera to get his attention but after he awake, he thought he is too sad to even have illusion seeing MK as a tiny human. So he off everything. But when he see the pin on the map he go there. MK guide him to the location and use his bat sonar frequency to lure the bats away from the moon. The pod blooms and choose the next Queen. Mandrake is defeated by Ronin and Nod. MK complete the mission and become normal again. Bomba start drawing the tiny people for reference. MK keep in touch with Nod via the sensor camera.

To start, the actor doing the voice overs were just perfect. the voices and the characters, were a wonderful fit. The story though a classic good and bad tail, with lost loved ones and youthful indifference, is told in such away that you have hope for all the character in the movie. I for one can't wait for the DVD so I can again enjoy the show in my own home.

the style of the animation seems somewhat realistic the characters are very engaging the plot is just awesome and the pace is a little bit slow but thats fine because this is perhaps the best blue sky has done

Epic is an entertaining film with beautiful animation, exciting action scenes, and an all-star cast, but a predictable plot.
½ July 23, 2016
Its humor and story have few shining moments, with the film being depressingly mediocre as a whole. Too underwhelming and indifferent to even suggest for consideration. Being bitterly 'ok' leaves one feeling more hollow than if they were to watch something bad they could've at least got a kick out of.

It was a great adventure children's movie.

One of the movies were the problem comes from what the misleading title attempts to remind you, and it tries to be more than what it is.
April 29, 2016
Epic was not really that much of an exciting movie as you thought it would be from the title. Epic is pretty similar to loads of other animated movies that are already released meaning it was very lazy work. There were very few good parts.

Loved the plot, the music, everything about this movie.

Good animation and a diverse cast of interesting characters. However, I feel the dialogue fails in certain aspects and the story-line was only so-so...only the side characters made me laugh a bit.
April 4, 2016
Great animation, enjoyable characters, fun, but used premise, but still recommendable.
March 25, 2016
Although not being from one of the big animation studios, Epic is still a pretty good film. Contains a lot of great voice talent but unfortunately doesn't pay off a lot of the time. Overall it's an okay film and I enjoyed it for the most part.

If you want to waste and hour and a half on unmemorable characters and a weird story, this is the movie for you. It's cute overall, with good animation and a talented voice cast but it doesn't live up to its title.

Graphics were beautiful, however the story & overall feel was too reminiscent of Ferngully
