Epic is a forgettable, but still somewhat fun animated adventure.
Blue Sky is not exactly the most successful animation studio in the world, but it has had its share of successes, beginning with the release of Ice Age. With Horton Hears a Who and Rio, Blue Sky has recently been a bigger hit with critics than in the past, also raking in billions of box office dollars in the process. They are hoping to replicate that critical and commercial prosperity with Epic, an ambitious fantasy adventure from the mind of William Joyce (his books also inspired Robots, Meet the Robinsons and Rise of the Guardians). With that in mind, does Epic ultimately prove to be a good change of pace for Blue Sky Studios?
