Epic isn't quite destined for the “Again, again!” re-watchability of some of the Pixar classics, but for a satisfying explosion of color on...

While it might not amount to epic animated filmmaking in terms of scope and invention, Epic, a 3D, CG adventure-fantasy from Blue Sky...

Slant Magazine

And that's the thing with Epic: It's something close to an animated masterpiece, provided it's watched on mute.

Movie Nation

By Roger Moore
Epic isn’t epic, but it isn’t half bad, either. It’s just that as high as the bar has been raised on this sort of animation, this is more...

Chicago Sun-Times

By Richard Roeper
While never losing its visual dazzle-factor, Epic keeps returning to overly familiar themes and characters.

The animated result isn't bad. It's an adequate baby sitter. But where's the allure in telling the truth? Twentieth Century Fox and Blue...

I had the sensation of sitting through a fourth-grade school play that contained no children of my own: the very definition of a nightmare.

Better than I thought it would be!

By Silr4c
This was definitely worth seeing in the theater! I don't usually go to out to see a movie twice but for this one I would not hesitate to see again. It flowed really well and had an engaging but not...

Cute movie... 3 year old said it was boring

By cku1231
I liked Epic it was cute, but the 3 year old I was with told me it was boring and took a nap for the majority of the movie. So it may not capture and keep the attention of small kids....

A little darker than I expected

By SandyKUtah
I took my 5 year old granddaughter and though I really liked it, I'm not so sure she did. When she told her parents what happened in the film, she didn't recap any of the "fun" stuff, only the "bad"...

I was not sure if this would be adventurous enough for my kids (5, 7 & 11) to stay focussed. But they enjoyed it very much. My husband & I also enjoyed it....

Visual = good, Beyonce = meh

Good kids movie, parents will enjoy, but adults will most likely pass

By OCDiva
The movie was okay in my opinion. Lots of big named actors, pretty design, but you knew what was going to happen throughout the whole picture. The kids will love it, parents will enjoy that the...

Fabulous characters and special effects

Viewers are immediately invested with all of the characters and with the intricate special effects. Although we had to leave early because my grandson became quite ill, I definitely recommend...

Super Hilarious

I honestly didn't want to watch this movie, but my little brother really wanted to see it. This movie was extremely hilarious. I would have never guessed there would be so much comedy. I ENCOURAGE...

Saw it with my husband and 12 year old son this weekend and we loved it. The graphics were amazing and I almost forgot that it was animated. I loved the interaction between the characters and the...
