epic 

 

I had seen previews for epic, and wanted to see it based on those previews. So we saved up, and when the Blu-ray + DVD combo went on sale we spent the money on this movie. There are some interesting things in epic, and some things I wish they had left out. The story in itself is fun on multiple layers.

We start out in epic learning about these little people that live in the forest. They are at war with those who want to decay and destroy the forest. So yeah a little tree hugger fluff in there. There is also a daughter who comes back to see her father. It sounds like the mother died, and she left her husband because he was obsessed with finding proof of these little people. She did not stand by her man.

The daughter wants to connect with her father but could care less about what he is interested in. On some levels they are both being selfish. She gets shrunk and stuck in the middle of the war of the little people in the forest. This is where things get interesting. She becomes a bridge between the two worlds.

There are frightening scenes of death and terror in epic. There is also some language and comments that could have been left out. The slug is my least favorite character. He is gross on so many levels. The snail character is actually funny. We also have a guy who does not want to be a hero - and you know what happens to him.

This movie was made in 2013, and lasts 102 minutes. There are forty-five minutes of bonus features - at least in the combo pack we purchased. My kids thought epic was okay. I think I may have enjoyed it more than they do. There are some adult elements like relationships touched upon in this movie.

Seeing the world from an ants perspective is interesting to me. Albeit a bit too tree hugger, and the magic makes no sense.
