Epic, the Movie

In Epic, a teenager finds herself transported to a deep forest setting where a battle between the forces of good and the forces of evil is taking place. She bands together with a rag-tag group characters in order to save their world — and ours.

I watched the movie last weekend with my 3 boys, since they have constantly been asking to watch it since they saw the trailer on television. So we went to Robinson’s Forum in Mandaluyong, Lo and behold, the cinema was thankfully not full.

Basically, the story is about a girl who is forced to live with her “crazy”and “obsessed” father when her mother dies, she then magically is shrunk to the size of the leaf people and finds herself in an adventure to save the forest with the help of a weird band of saviors.

All in all, the movie was quiet entertaining, although a bit short -about 1:30 long only.

A great movie to watch with the kids as it has some underlying lessons to be learned.
