Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: As beautiful as it is, "Epic" is fatally lacking in visceral momentum and dramatic edge.
Fresh: Epic's visuals are enthralling enough for little and big folks to offset a predictable, albeit sweet, story.
Fresh: With its array of goofy sidekicks (Aziz Ansari as a slug almost runs away with the whole picture) and carefully crafted relationships, Epic certainly manages to tell a compelling tale.
Fresh: It may not be epic, but it's eye-popping entertainment.
Visually impressive but the dialog doesn't fit
This is a fantasy world. Bows and arrows, talking animals, armor for birds. Urban jive slang doesn't fit. You want to be in the world, not downtown LA. Every time a character opens their mouth it pops the 'I believe' bubble, tossing you out of the story. It's like the visual director and the script writers had totally different stories in mind.
Wonderful children's movie
While I don't mean to offend anyone this is a children's movie and meant to appeal more to the younger generations I highly enjoyed the simplistic dialog and the easy to see lines of who is the bad guys and who are the good simply because I let myself as an adult enjoy a children's animated movie :-) this is a very cute movie that I would love to watch again.... For everyone over analyzing this movie please just remember it is a children's movie and meant to appeal to the child in all of us stop analyzing everything and just enjoy the movie
I am a teen and my brothers and i love this movie, even my mom loves it. I have seen it 7 times and the soccer girls enjoy watching it as a team too. This movie is so creative and really opens your eyes to look at nature in a different way. Adults need to calm down with their criticizing commints. the movie is meant to attract younger audiences. i was in a full large movie theater with tons of teen, kids and parents and everyone had such a good time. You could hear them all laughing and the little kids even laughed, teens as well. It is such a pretty movie and now my little bro goes outside saying "hey look the boggans came and got mom's plant." (she doesnt really have a green thumb). But i do understand the price of it and it would be nice for them to lower it.
