Epic by Izzie b AKA 21st century girl
Several weeks ago, I went along to a 3D showing of Epic, a film I had been waiting to see for ages and watched it with my older sister (yes, her and I have very similar film taste!) and my younger brother. I was amazed by the comedy of the film and how many charecters died considering it is mostly aimed at children.
Epic is a 3D animated movie for all ages about a girl named Mary Katherine (generously voiced by Amanda Seyfriend, Mean Girls, Mamma MIA!) who is a normal sized teenage girl, with a scientist/ slightly eccentric father, however she stumbles into the forest and shrinks but meets creatures called Leafmen who are fighting between themselves and the oppisite side, the Boggans, led by the ever evil leader named Mandrake (voiced by Austrian actor Christoph Waltz, who should be nominated for an award for this!) an eager villain and forest detroyer . Along the way, MK also meets Nod (Josh Hutcherson, The Hunger Games), Bufo (voiced by Pitbull, king of the phrase Miss Worldwide), Mub, Grub and Ronin.
If you want to watch it, go ahead if it is still in cinema, it is a very good film and shows the actors slide out of their comfort zone. Epic also stars Beyonce and Colin Farrell. Overall, it should get several Kids’ or even Teen choice awards next award season despite it’s supposed low scores. However the only downside to it is that is was too predictable towards the middle- the end.
Thank you for taking time to read this.
