Epic was a great movie for all ages. It's plot was simple enough that the young children would understand and complicated enough so the adults were entertained as well. The graphics were fantastic and we all thoroughly enjoined it. Highly recommend it.

Epic does not live up to its name. Its rare for a big budget animated movie to miss the mark. Epic is mildly entertaining. Epic takes the same honey-I-shrunk-the-forest-savior that Fern Gully took in the 90's. It's unfortunate that Epic fails to meet the fun factor and cohesive plot and character development of Fern Gully. Beyonce should not be a voice actress. The visuals come close to being as stunning as Fern Gully's were at the time.
Epic did hold the attention of the kids in the theater. There is quite a bit of animated violence including a few deaths of both good and bad guys. The villain and his minions may scare small children. I love animated movies, but this isn't one of them. Unless you have to take the kids to something, I'd wait to rent this one.
There were no scenes during or after the credits
If you like my reviews, add me as a fan. I'll add you back!

So many movies appeal to one gender (a princess or a warrior), but this story has both male and female heroes. Not the greatest animated story ever, but a good time. There is not too much scary stuff for little ones (under 8), although they might not really grasp the story.

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 too complicated storyline. The kids (the ones I brought, ages 5-10) really liked the characters and there was just enough humor and action to keep them entertained throughout the duration of the movie.

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.
