Spirited Away (for me) was epic. And so is Ponyo, and Tangled, and Animal Farm... but Epic (2013) fell a little short on being impressively great - it was enjoyable though. Luckily, I expected it to be worse, so finding out that it wasn't as bad as I expected it to be is a welcomed feeling.
The opening billboard wasn't captivating so expect to lean in (or at least stop playing iconomia) during the latter part. As for me, I started paying more attention when the father explained his theory on the speed of the little people. It reminded me of aliens :) HAHAHAHA Just an aside, but I am fascinated with the idea of aliens. I think that the world is too big for me to believe that aliens do not exist.
The previous statement is the reason why I like the premise of the movie. The characters were okay but not really notable - except for the slug and the snail, they are puppies! hihi. There were lots of funny scenes thanks to them.
I guess that's about it. Epic (2013) is an entertaining film - just don't expect it to be the pure "epic". You can, however, consider the below description:
pertaining to a long poetic composition, usually centered upon a hero, in which a series of great achievements or events is narrated in elevated style.
