Epic Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Coming from Blue Sky Studios—the same production team behind the Ice Age series—it should come as no surprise that Epic looks fantastic on Blu-ray, with a 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation that's bold, colorful, and highly dimensional even in its 2D iteration. I really can't muster any complaints here. None of the usual picture quality bugaboos apply from a normal viewing distance—there's no harsh, artifact-causing compression, no stair-step aliasing, no encode glitches, no banding or noise—and the image holds up to the closest pixel-peeping inspection too. The film's stylized look doesn't go for photorealism, but there's a lot of great detail and texture in the character designs and the surrounding forest world. The almost palpable surface of flower petals. The weft of the professor's burlap satchel. The Leafmen's plated armor. M.K.'s wispy hair. Mandrake's bat-pelt cloak. All of it is sharply rendered, with crisp lines and a vivid color palette that—as expected—is heavy on forest greens and bright flowery hues. (Though the darker, blue-cast scenes in Mandrake's rotting kingdom look just as good.)

In 3D, the picture loses none of its clarity or color. In fact, some details actually look a little sharper, especially whiskers and animal fur, because they have the illusion of added dimensionality. Overall, Epic's use of 3D is tastefully restrained—no eye-gouging, jump-out-of-the-screen effects— preferring pleasing layers of depth to gimmicky projection. (Given the density of the forest in many scenes, it would quickly grow tiring if branches and leaves were constantly waving in your face.) Whether or not the depth really adds to the experience of the film is subjective and up for debate, but the 3D is at least done well, with more than a few "oooh, wow, look at that" moments. If your TV set is prone to ghosting issues, the cluttered forest scenes may give you some slight trouble, but otherwise crosstalk is minimal. If vibrant CGI imagery—in 2D or 3D—is your kind of demo-worthy eye candy, Epic definitely fits the bill.


Epic Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The film's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround track is just as impressive, overabundant with energetic—but carefully considered—sound design. There's the near-constant backdrop of forest ambience, to start, and in front of this are lively cross-channel movements that put the entire soundfield to good use. Hummingbirds hovering and darting to and fro. Professor Bomba's three-legged dog running spastic loops around us. Arrows zipping. Bats swarming en masse. The aching crack of a falling tree and the resultant spray of dirt and leaves as it crashes down. There's rarely a dull moment. The simulated immersion is matched by solid dynamics; highs are clear and tight, mids have good projection, and the low-end rumbles away when needed. Danny Elfman's vaguely Irish-inspired score has great presence too—with lilting flute lines atop traditional orchestral sounds—and the dialogue cuts cleanly through the mix, always understandable. For this type of movie, you couldn't ask for more. The disc also includes a number of dub and subtitles options; please see the top of the page for full details.
