In a nutshell, this is a movie designed to mesmerize children while the adults can nod off. The animation and 3D effects work together well, while every other aspect of the film is decent-to-average. Chris Wedge spun a nice yarn and the story was fulfilling. The voices were well-suited to their characters, the best was from Aziz Ansari. This is strictly a movie for children. Adults may find this a decent babysitting movie to kill time. It isn't bad, but doesn't live up to its name.

This was definitely worth seeing in 3D. Our family enjoyed it. With too few kids movies out there we risked it taking our 4 year old gal who enjoyed it. Some scary parts for a 4 year old... some characters get axed. Better for older kids.

Though it isn't Epic, it is a good movie with beautiful scenery. A few sad moments, some funny ones, quite a bit of adventure. Not much popping out at you in the 3D version - 3D is more for depth of the scenery (forest), which helps add to its beauty. A Good vs Evil fantasy adventure that keeps you entertained. Geared towards kids but good for anyone.

A fun to watch movie for the whole family. Watching it in 3D was very enjoyable. A colorful movie with lots of action and a decent plot.

My daughters wanted to see this movie and we saw it in 3-D. The 3-D effect was minimal at best so don't pay extra for it unless you catch the matinee show. The story was okay and Beyonce's voice as the queen was not a good choice in my opinion. I like her but her voice just didn't work for me in that role.
Nevertheless, my daughters enjoyed the movie but I noticed they weren't talking about it that much after we left the cinema.
The animation was good except that the queen looked like a plastic doll. If you go out to see this movie you will see what I mean.
So with that said, I would not recommend that anyone pay box office prices to see this film. This film should have been released straight to DVD or Blu Ray film, because there isn't anything here to rave about. The story wasn't innovative, the jokes were few and the characters wasn't developed properly.
This is a kids movie and I'm sure they will enjoy it
On scale of 1 to 10 I give this film a 5
