EPIC is a 3D CG action-adventure comedy that reveals a hidden world unlike any other. From the creators of ICE AGE and RIO, EPIC tells the story of an ongoing battle deep in the forest between the forces of good and the forces of evil. When a teen age girl finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she must band together with a rag-tag team of fun and whimsical characters in order to save their world... and ours.

I tend to not over think the individual flaws of a film, but how it stands as an ensemble. Sometimes we don't agree with the logic of the story, but in the end, is the important issue is, was the story well told over all. Epic qualifies for "Story Well Told".
"Epic's" RIO genealogy shows though in the most positive ways. Beautiful to watch. Good vs. Evil, etc., and yes Good prevails. I'm certain all of my grandchildren will love it and their parents will approve.
As other have said, the animation is breathtakingly beautiful with amazing attention to detail. The 3D is NOT "in your face" but just enough to gain that extra degree of "being there". It was very tasteful. This is artful animation, not the CG live-action of Avatar. The 3D was just right for me, and the family agreed. The use of foreground vs back ground carried though even into the credits. KUDOs for being true to the 3D art form. This is a film you can forget it's in 3D until you turn the 3D off. Then you know it's missing. Just right...
We'll watch it over and over as each batch of kids and grownups circles through the house to watch in 3D or 2D as the groups prefer.
It will undoubtedly become a "standard" as sure as RIO, Ice Age, Robots, and other BlueSky animated films have. That reminds me, time to watch Robots again!
Thanks BluSky for thinking just enough out of the box.
My primary criticisms: "What's up with the title"? No wonder people didn't flock to see it. Too bad. Don't let the title put you off. The film could have just as easily be title" "Wonderful" or "Enchanting", which it was for us. My secondary criticism is the extra features are only on the 2D disk in the set. Surely the 3D didn't take up that much extra data on the disk, or maybe it did with the exceptional detail. Furthermore, this is a very complex project and I think there were many opportunities missed in the Extra features. They weren't the Extras you'll tell your friends about, etc.. like those found on Shrek and some other animated films. Oh wait!. Maybe I just figured out why they didn't bother to include them on the 3D disk.
Balance your life. Watch "Epic" with friends and family, then go out and enjoy the outdoors the Leafmen are protecting.

Boys may have some trouble identifying with the main character, our son was less attracted initially but the story should be compelling enough.
We buy 3D Blu Ray’s where possible. You pay up for it but they enhance the a great family-film evening. Epic in 3D looks very sharp and natural on our fairly high-end Oled LG TV, that get supported by proper surround sound. I must say I tend to like 3Dviewing more at home than in cinema’s these days. And Epic in 3D is particularly well-done; all looks very pleasant and natural to watch.
I would recommend Epic as an exciting, happy film to watch with anyone! In terms of younger viewers, there are some action-like scenes but I would not say they are frightening. When seeing it in the cinema there were some very young viewers who seemed to love it!
PS: I totally loved the snail and slug, those two (along with MK) are my faves lol
