I was lucky enough to be transported to the magical land of tiny people who live in the forest at a screening of Epic thanks to The Moms. Armando “Pitbull” Pérez was on hand to introduce the movie, talk about living your dreams and to tell all the kids in the audience to listen to their moms!
I really enjoyed the 3D movie Epic as did 5 year old Mr P. For him to really get into a movie their has to be either lots of adventure, comedy or a combination of both. Epic had a lot of adventure and twists and turns, the comedy came largely thanks to Mub (Aziz Ansari) and Grub (Chris O’Dowd) the slimy slug duo that played a big part in the movie.
It is hard to explain the enchanting world of tiny people that live in the forest right outside the home of an eccentric scientist. When his daughter’s mom (his ex-wife) passes away, their daughter MK comes to live with him. Like everyone else, she doee not believe his tales of tracking tiny people who move at the speed of light. I’d be giving too much away if I said too much more, but let’s just say MK becomes central to connecting her Dad’s world with the world of the tiny people. Brave Leafman protect the forest while Mandrake and his Boggan try to run it.
With stunning visuals and an original storyline, this movie is a great one for the whole family.
disclosure: I received complimentary tickets to this movie thanks to The Moms. But as always all opinions are 100% my own.
