When my step-daughter asked me to watch Epic with her, it was just after seeing another (really bad) family movie. Instead, I fell asleep beside her after only a few moments as she watched it all.
Those first few moments, however, did catch my interest, so I went back (without her) and watched the rest of it. What a great story! Beautifully imaginative and wonderfully animated, this is a movie that is unique, has a wonderful heroine (voice by Amanda Seyfried) that faces a whole new world after losing her mother and having to move in with her dodgy (and very nerdy) father.
This adventure is full of surprises and depth with Beyonce playing the voice of the lovely and courageous Queen Tara.
Without giving this away, I will just say that if you have to watch a g-rated movie one night, this is a great choice. Make a bowl of popcorn, snuggle with your little ones (or someone else’s) and be prepared for a great couple of hours.
