Today I saw Epic by Blue Sky Studios. It was pretty good. I’ll give it four out of five stars.
Epic is a beautiful movie. The designs of the creatures and characters are brilliant and detailed with beautiful colors and shapes. The characters were good and there was a decent amount of humor. I heard some people complain that it had little plot, a symptom of most Blue Sky movies, but I thought it had enough. Actually, I think it had more plot than most of the Blue Sky movies I’ve seen. There was a little something from it missing that I couldn’t put my finger on, (maybe the word is depth?), but it didn’t detract too much from the movie for me. The ending wasn’t what I was expecting, but it ended well. It had good themes, some of which were more obvious than others, such as we’re all connected and you should never give up on your dreams or ignore the things that are most important.
If I could describe Epic in one word, it would be “pretty.” There’s more to it than beauty, though, and I found it a very enjoyable movie. It’s definitely worth a watch. I saw it in 2D, but I could tell that it had great potential as a 3D movie.
I want more stories from this world.
