Mars Movie Reviews – Epic

Movie Info: EPIC is a 3D CG adventure comedy that reveals a fantastical world unlike any other. From the creators of ICE AGE and RIO, 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 a teenage girl finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she teams up with an elite band of warriors and a crew of comical, larger-than-life figures, to save their world…and ours. — (C) Fox

Mars Review: Produces images of poetic power. The catch is that the world the filmmakers create is far more interesting than the story they tell in it in it or the characters they put in it.  Epic has enough excitement and visual flair to appeal to moviegoers of any age.  Although this adventure’s premise will appeal to children, and the child within us, the film itself is far too simplistic to be Epic.

Stars: 2 1/2 out of 5
