"Wow" was my first reaction too. :) Once that feeling subsided, I checked IMDB on the writers' credits. Not so impressive. It's a "creative by committee" mixed bag.- [B]Daniel Shere[/B] has 4 credits to his name, including "Epic", and none of them are well known.- [B]Tom Astle & Matt Ember[/B] both have lots of credits to their names. However, both are TV sitcom writers - for some not very good shows too. Their biggest shared credit was that mediocre "Get Smart" movie with Steve Carell & Anne Hathaway.- [B]William Joyce[/B]'s claim to fame is the book "A Day with Wilbur Robinson", which was the basis for the criminally underrated, but overworked "Meet the Robinsons".- [B]James Hart[/B]'s credits range from "okay" to just "ugh". He's been partially responsible for misses and messes like "Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life", "Hook", "Contact", and "The Last Mimzy". His most best works were probably "Dracula" and "Muppet Treasure Island", which were just okay.It's unlikely that they actually got together in a room to write. That means that this script was passed over to the next guy for rewrites each time the studio wasn't quite happy. Script doctoring like that can lead to a messy movie. It can work in some cases, but can really be a disaster on other flicks. Too many cooks, as they say.

Visually, it's really something to behold alright. My bigger concern is story. There have been plenty of beautiful CG films that were little more than polished poo - some even from Pixar. Epic doesn't look like one I'll skip but it might be one to wait for on DVD/Netflix. Gotta see the next trailer.
