From the creators of Ice Age and Rio, Epic is the story of a teenage girl Mary Katherine (voiced by Amanda Seyfried), or M.K. Her dad is a bit of a crazy professor who believes a race of tiny soldiers exists, and M.K. wishes he'd stop saying such things. But when she shrinks and finds herself surrounded by these very warriors, known as Leafmen, she realises he was right.
Her new friends' forest home is under threat, and M.K. must fight with them if she ever wants to return to her own world. Of course, there's also time for love, and M.K. finds a connection with Leafman Nod (Josh Hutcherson).
It's worth mentioning Mub (Aziz Ansari), a slug, and his snail sidekick, Grub (Chris O'Dowd) who will have you in stitches.
All the characters ride birds and bats, so there's lots of action, which justifies the 3D. Director Chris Wedge also makes thoughtful use of subtle sounds to really create that forest atmosphere. Hang around at the end for the song Rise Up, sung by Beyonce, who is also in the film.
