The image above may not be the official poster for the movie, which would depict a hero (a naughty Leafman, imaginary protector of the rainfortest) and a human (a pretty girl from our real world). Sure, in my opinion, Mub and Grub, though just supporting actors, have brought the best moments in the 3D animation EPIC and during the film their appearance and hilarious conversations triggered the most laughs. More than Minions from Despicable Me, the Triplets from Brave and Scrat from Ice Age, Mub and Scrub have some personalities
Like this one:
“Mub: What’s going on, baby girl?
Mary Katherine: Talking snails.
Mub: Actually, I’m a slug. No shell over here, baby.”
“Mandrake: You just can’t stop the rot.
Mub: Ugly says what?
[he and Grub snicker]”
Generally EPIC makes a decent cartoon, even much better than Brave by Pixar though still may not excel Ice Age. It both contains awesome gliding and arrow-shooting scenes and a structured story with emotional moments.
Final say, if you like Avatar’s Pandora (also the best 3D movie up to now), you will definitely enjoy being in the rain-forest and observing its creatures’ rituals to nurture our mother earth. Well done EPIC!
