Plot: A teenager finds herself transported to a deep forest setting where a battle between the forces of good and the forces of evil is taking place. She bands together with a rag-tag group characters in order to save their world -- and ours. Runtime: 102 mins Release Date: 23 May 2013
I didn't think I'd like this movie, but I took my 10-year-old cousin to see it anyway, and I really loved it.I've heard this film compared to everything--FernGully, The Borrowers, Avatar, etc., and while it is another film in that genre and it may be a little cliché, it does create its own fascinating world and tell its story in a unique way. Its themes are heavy family and belonging, the balance between growth and decay/life and death but are handled in a successfully child-friendly manner.The animation and design are gorgeous. I love the cute fairy-like flower and leaf <more>
people; I even love the design of the goblin-like bad guys the Boggan . I want to see more stories set in this incredible little world. I also appreciate how much care went into animating that forest.While the characters are pretty familiar, they're still delightful. I thought the choice of voice actors was particularly good. I liked Amanda Seyfried as the main character, M.K. Mary Katherine , I looooved Colin Farrell as Ronin, and I have to say, I was really pleasantly surprised by Beyonce as Queen Tara. She has a voice just like honey, which fits the queen's sweet, playful personality. Queen Tara emerges as one of my favorite animated characters of all time and NO, I do not find her voice "too ghetto." I don't appreciate people sniffing down their noses at others that way because she carried so much of the movie with what turned out to be really minimal role. Plus, I always love to see people of color portrayed positively in children's films.I would definitely take kids to see this again, although it might be too scary for kids younger than 6 and too slow for kids older than 12. Folks have to admit, this is a fun movie to watch, and highly imaginative kids especially will love it.
Stunning visuals, 3D and good laughs... (by shyamkrishsai)
First of all I enjoyed this one to the core...although this is mainly a movie for kids, grown ups will also love it if you have that sense of getting light hearted and enjoying visuals. The storyline is a bit fairy tale like..but as we can see in the latest fairy tales, there are much more things to enjoy than the old ones. This story have a father who is trying to find out the secret world of small men, and his daughter coming to him after a long. At her father's place she comes across the mysterious and wonderful world of small sized leaf men and all the adventure unfolds. The movie has <more>
its main plus points in the great CG usage, the colorful surroundings, awesome usage of 3D and some good laughs.
First off, the quality was amazing. Nod is really attractive. And after finding out that Josh Hutcherson was his voice made me love him and this movie even more. At the end, I was a little disappointed that M.K didn't stay small so she could be with Nod. But then I realized that this is a kids movie, so maybe that was why she didn't. Well I'm hoping there will be a second Epic! Loved it so much. It was really funny and cute. And I see people are complaining how Beyonce was the voice of the queen. But I thought she did a great job. Her voice is calm, so it fit the roll of the queen <more>
of nature. In love with the plot and cast and everything about this movie. Please make a second Epic! :
easily of the most beautiful animations this year (by noitocho2000)
I had the pleasure of seeing Epic and the truth is...it it epic. There is so much good in this movie. When I say the movie is beautiful I mean it! The colors are bright and amazing. And the way the particles act is great. It felt like watching Battlefield 4. The movie looked magnificent. The water and wind acted realistically. And the design for all the characters were pretty. The main Character M.K. was actually very pretty. She looked like a real human being, as did Ronin And Nod. The villains were realistic and the enemy was real. As I said it felt like watching battlefield 4 beautiful <more>
visuals and amazing lighting. Most of the acting was well done however some key moments that dialogue was important didn't seem real. Character would talk to weird like nothing happened. But overall the acting was good. The action is crazy good and can entertain everyone. Now for some mild bad things. About 40% of the comedic relief is not too funny and should of been replaced with more serious moments. But you will forget as this movie is pure entertainment for all. You should go see it immediately
WoW... This the best animated movie i seen in long time (by steefan-92)
Before i went into cinema to watch this animated movie,i checked critics and reviews and was surprised with amount of negative opinions.So i though oh what heck i am going to watch it anyway i already paid the ticket.And this movie took my breath away.Its so good,funny,cheerful,colorful that i had to watch it for the second time.Animation are amazing,character design in this movie is very good,humor is top notch,i don't remember when was the last time i laugh so much while watching movie.What sweep me of the floor is their approach of making story,character development,combat scenes.Oh <more>
yea,combat scenes you don't have chance to see such detail pleasant combat scenes in this kind of animated movies.They took this very serious and make it look so good that i wish there is more of it.That said,every main character is unique in its own way.The people behind this movie didn't want just to make another fairy tale for children like Tinker Bell for example,they want far more beyond that.Its has so much serious,realistic and even dark note.This movie is made to appeal to older audience who seek that as much as for young audience.Although,i think that this is not movies for kids in range of 3-8 ages because it will be very hard for them to follow what is going on.And that's one of drawbacks of this movie but everything else awesome.I wanted to write review as soon as i watch the movie but i forgot about it,and yesterday when my sister asked how this movie is i remembered what i forgot to do.So there you go,if you are fan of animated movies and have more years than you should have for this kind of stuff like i do,or even if you are not,don't miss this because believe you have no idea what you are missing.
Modern Ferngully. Fantastic animation. Funny characters. (by Growlyted)
I love Blue Sky's "Ice Age" series and I was delighted to see Scrat in the logo. This leads to a beautiful and energetic opening sequence. Epic has just the right mix of action, emotional scenes and humour. Perhaps the main characters are generic, but I cared about them and their quest. While it does have "Ferngully" plot elements, especially the shrinking & the destructive evil power against the benign forces of nature; these are much bigger and exciting. No preaching involved. The comic relief snail & slug are amusing and have an essential role in the plot. <more>
The scene stealer is often Ozzy the dog, who also has his part. Watch out for one of the villain's guards too. I enjoyed the creativity of the background flower, mushroom, twig population. Also the armour worn by the evil forces. The animation for the action sequences is especially impressive. The voice talent is excellent.
WOW! Epic is the perfect family movie for everyone in a summer filled with sequels, superheroes, and big-budget films. (by spencer-k-688-4204)
Epic is about a smart, spirited, and headstrong 17 year-old, teenager named Mary Katherine "M.K." who, after the death of her mother, moves back to live with her estranged father, Professor Bomba, along with her pet dog, Ozzy. Bomba has long studied a group of warriors who live in the forest and protect it as guardians of good. He often will go into the forest and survey them. She, like every other human in the movie, doesn't believe in all the stuff her father has devoted particularly his life to. She loses patience with him and his stories and their reunion is all but a <more>
disaster. One day, the professor does not return from a hike in the forest, so Mary Katherine sets out to look for him. Hours later, she comes upon a group of glowing, falling leaves. Catching one of them, she is suddenly shrunken down. In her minuscule state, she discovers the group of warriors Prof. Bomba has studied, who are known as the Leaf-Men. When she is forced to reside with the Leaf-Men, she gains a new perspective and developed friendships with everyone in the forest. To find her way home, M.K. must do than believe in this world; she'll help to save it from the Boggans and their ruthless, villainous leader Mandrake. This is a story about betrayal, sacrifice, friendship, love, bravery, courage, and caring for something else rather than yourself.The acting is really superb and all the actors have great chemistry together: Amanda Seyfried, Josh Hutcherson, Christoph Waltz, Colin Farrell, Aziz Ansari, and Jason Sudekis are terrific, while Beyoncé is the best of all. She is a real acting triumph in the film, and her performance is so critical in the film, as Queen Tara will do anything to ensure the safety of the forest and the lives of her friends, and that she leaves M.K. a very important mission to do her behalf when she couldn't. She brings a lot of integrity, passion, and heart to her role and helps carry the film with spectacular grace.There's a lot to love about the film, including its production design, visual artistry, and the 3D, which are as dazzling, grand, spectacular, and innovative as, say, Avatar. The 3D is really worth the price of admission; the film features strong emotional depth and an immersive experience that can be greatly experienced in 3D, and the animation, in particular, is terrifically phenomenal and realistic. Danny Elfman did a very good job with the music score as he captured the spirit, excitement, essence, and heart of the film.With the script written by William Joyce, James V. Hart Hook, August Rush , Tom J. Astle and Matt Ember Get Smart , and Daniel Shere, the story's narrative was famillar to other films, but so was Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, How to Train Your Dragon, Hotel Transylvania, and The Croods, and yet, it was cleverly written that it stands out on its own from other films so there's nothing to worry about. They, along with Chris Wedge and the story artists, have aggressively expanded William Joyce's original story by giving it fantastical mythologies about the forest, more development on the characters, and the supplementing the action-adventure genre in the story as Wedge envisioned. I liked the fact that Joyce worked on the script, because when you have a small story that was expanded to be more ambitious and dramatic, then it's best to have input from Joyce as he included a lot of cool and interesting plot points in the film.For instance, Joyce modeled Mary Katherine M.K. very much after his own daughter; she, unfortunately, died from a brain tumor in 2010 and it was a very personal and devastating loss for him. I truly wish that this movie should've been dedicated to her memory, as it would mean much to her family and friends. She would've been very proud of the movie, her father's work on the film, and the main character in the film, Mary Katherine M.K. .Wedge's direction triumphed the most in the film. He came a long way from his beginnings and he wanted to make the film something special. He wanted to make this as an action-adventure epic on the scale of Ben-Hur, Star Wars, Gladiator, and the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and he succeeds it. He doesn't intend it to be cute and I'm grateful that it wasn't; previous action-adventure animated films Titan A.E. and Atlantis had intense situations with childlike supporting characters, thus leaving the films with a poorly identified targeted audience about what's a film's targeted audience and this was not the case for Epic. I liked how he handed with both the characters and actors, and his direction is ingenious and visionary. He can really handle big ambitious epic films with ingenious storytelling on this scale, even if it's an animated film. The epic spectacle is never at the expanse of the story, characters, and the heart of the story.Epic goes to prove to people that animated films can also really handle the action-adventure genre as much as live-action films do, just like how Peter Pan, Sleeping Beauty, Akira, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, The Incredibles, and Kung Fu Panda trilogy did. With this film, Blue Sky Studios wanted to prove everyone that they can do so much more than pop culture references, cheap jokes, and unimaginative storytelling. They've not only exceeded that, they surpassed it and beyond. With this film, this is a promising launch of the new Blue Sky Studios, which has declared war on DreamWorks, Disney Animation, and Pixar.You will be laughing, astonished, amazed, blown away, and inspired, because Epic truly stands out as one of the most surprising film experiences of the year, and could be one of the best films of the year.
My Rating: ***1/2 out of **** The way things a currently looking, this might very well not be a Pixar year. A much as I might enjoy Monsters University and possibly Planes, they may very well not be my favorite animated films of the year, and they probably won't be. The Croods is already my favorite animated film of the year, and this movie, Epic, in my opinion, is also pretty good.The main protagonist of the film is Mary Katherine, or M. K., a likable and cute teenage girl who, after her mother's death, goes to live with her eccentric and reclusive father. Her father believes that <more>
there is a miniature world of magical little people and creatures that live in the forest, and of course other people, including M. K., don't believe him. However, she soon magically shrunken and discovers this little world, which she must save.And so on. I admit, the movie is not very epic; it is a bit generic and has just about every cliché possible: good vs. evil, balance of nature, dysfunctional parent/child relationship, etc etc. The film resembles a number of other films, such as FernGully, Avatar, and Honey I Shrunk the Kids, among others. One of the main characters, the Nod, even resembles Flynn Rider from Tangled pretty strongly but this wasn't a problem for me . However, I disagree with everyone who is calling it charmless, forgettable, too reliant on visuals, and weak in terms of character, plot, heart, etc. That's right, I actually enjoyed it.I actually thought the movie was handled fairly well and has a decent, solid, enjoyable, well- paced plot. The film started out a bit slow, but I started to get more interested as trouble started brewing in the miniature forest world and then M. K. gets shrunken; from then on the movie was much better, and I got interested and emotionally involved in the story. The film also has likable characters and relationships, and good voice performances by Amanda Seyfried, Josh Hutcherson, Colin Farrell, Beyonce Knowles, and the rest of the cast. It even had some good humorous parts, including a pair of mollusks and a three-legged dog.The best part of the film is the animation; dazzling, lively, meticulously detailed, and it helps bring everything to life. Like Avatar, this movie has what I found to be an interesting, immersing, well-designed setting. Also, like Avatar, it has a good, strong ecological message, which I appreciate. It also has heart, charm, and genuine emotion, and additional good moral messages such as friendship, love, bravery, and selflessness.Bottom line: If you ask me, Epic is hardly epic, but it's good. And it was especially enjoyable for me on the big screen. Kids will certainly love it; and if you are an adult, like me, just let out your inner child and enjoy the film.For more reviews, visit my review blog: http://robertsreliablereviews.blogspot.com/

The plot has a beautiful message and is a wonderful family entertainment. My vote is eight.Title Brazil : "Reino Escondido" "Hidden Kingdom"
