Epic

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

In this vivid 3D an­i­ma­tion, di­rected by Chris Wedge ( Ice Age), a teen girl is shrunk to tiny size and trans­ported to a mag­i­cal for­est where she takes sides in a war be­tween good and evil for­est fairies. Colin Far­rell, Christoph Waltz and Bey­once Knowles head­line the voice cast. They say: Re­views were mostly solid, if not ec­static, with the film’s fluid vi­su­als largely over­com­ing the rote sto­ry­telling. Box­of­fice re­sults, how­ever, were only so-so. (Re­port, Page 14.) Wesay: The gags are aw­fully stale and the same story has been re­hashed and re­heated since sto­ries were told, which makes a cin­ema trip to Epic, with the kids in tow, hard to jus­tify ahead of com­pet­ing school hol­i­day films. Run­ning time 104 min­utes. Screens at Pa­cific Fair, Robina, Coolan­gatta, Aus­tralia Fair, Har­bour Town, Nerang, Tweed City from Mon­day.
