An imaginative 3-D animated fantasy begins with Mary Katherine (Seyfried), a young teenager, arriving to visit her eccentric, almost-mad scientist father (Sudeikis). Claiming there are elaborate, hidden kingdoms in the woods surrounding his house, he comes across as a bit daft. But, when MK (as she calls herself) is shrunk down to the size of the forest creatures, she discovers her father is not mad after all: There is
a magnificent world deep in the woods … and an ongoing war between good and evil, too, with two contrasting societies arrayed against each other in a near-medieval setting. The plot is both obvious and innovative. A dozen small touches – including great voice work, stunning visuals, a wide variety of interesting characters, and a witty, full script – make this film entertaining for all ages. Fast-moving, involving, and entertaining, Epic
sweeps you deep into its current and carries you swiftly along. Read a full review of Epic.
