Mary Katherine, also know as M.K. (voice of Amanda Seyfried), wanted a "normal dad." Since her parents were divorced, and her mom had recently passed away, she needed the guidance and stability of her father. The only problem was, her father was very preoccupied. He was obsessed with the idea that there was a kingdom of tiny people living in the forest behind his house. He had dozens of cameras throughout the area; he was so determined to find the little creatures, that was his goal in life. Initially M.K. thought her dad was crazy, but then one day when she went into the forest and realized her father was right. She met the little creatures, and before you know it she became a teeny, tiny person herself. M.K. ended up bonding with the Leafman (the good guys), and helped defend them against the Baggons (the bad guys). She became apart of their world, while trying to get back to her father. Epic is a wonderful animated film for the whole family! 


With the endearing storyline, the colorful animation, and likable characters; this will entertain young kids. The theater was packed with little ones. The kids laughed at the funny parts, and they were quiet and attentive in the movie.
The subject of death comes up as M.K. grieves the loss of her mother.

Life is good!! That's how Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) feels now that he's a retired, criminal gang leader. He's enjoying the sun and paradise, living off the coast of Spain; living life to the fullest and loving it! However things change when Agent Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) summons Dom and his crew to take down a skilled mercenary organization, led by the evil villain Shaw, and Dominic's ex girlfriend, Letty (whom Dom thought had died). Now Dom and his crew reunite for more adventures in this sixth installment of the Fast & Furious series. 


Amongst all the violence and car chase scenes; the importance of family was woven throughout the film.
There was a lot of action and suspense, however the movie got a little long, the ending dragged on!
Sexual Content:Mild
• During the race car scenes, woman were shown wearing very little; while dancing and entertaining the crowd.
• There were a few sexual references; one about a male's body part, and another about liking rough sex.

Violent Content: Excessive
• There were punches, fist fights, character's pushed against walls, explosions and gun shots throughout the entire movie.
• There were race scenes and car chases. We saw vehicles rolled over and completely destroyed; with a lot of casualties.
• We saw characters jumping from one car to another, while racing.
• Two woman got into a fierce battle. They pounded one another, and wrestled on the ground.

Crude or Profane Language: Excessive
• The f-word was said once. "Sh-t," "d--n," "a--," "b--ch," "h--l," "b--tard" and "p---y," were said throughout the film. I lost count there were so many!

Drugs and Alcohol Content: Mild
• Characters were shown drinking beer and wine in several scenes.

Will Kids Like It? Yes
Overall this is an action packed movie that most kids will like. Parents need to be aware of the excessive violent content and profane language. Depending on the child, Fast & Furious 6 is appropriate for kids ages 12 and up.
