Epic tells the story of an ongoing battle between the forces of good, who keep the natural world alive, and the forces of evil, who wish to destroy it. When 17-year-old Mary Katherine finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she bands together with a rag-tag group of characters in order to save their world, and ours.
Although the basic story is too juvenile and simplistic to entertain anyone with an age in the double-digit range, the themes and underlying ideas are too complicated to capture the attention of someone younger.
The film's chief strength lies in its depiction of a new and exotic world and appreciating how Fox animators envisioned and created such a world. Epic is epically gorgeous in its art design and animation.
The story has a nice combination of reconciliation, drama and humor. There are some very funny jokes and pratfalls in the film. The kids in the audience laughed at the jokes aimed at them, but this film works for adults too.
A 3D eco-fantasy whose mantra-like insistence that we're all connected by nature is one of the main things that underscores the abject insincerity of the sentiment as the movie articulates it, "Epic" is very nearly epic in its stifling mediocrity.
