Is It Any Good?

For a free app, Epic Movie FX is impressive in its ability to create quite realistic (but definitely not close-to-Hollywood-level) effects. The app is very easy to use, and, though there have been reports of it acting buggy on some devices, it worked well during this review. It would be nice if the developers added some "epic" effects that didn't necessarily reflect real-life violent destruction for young moviemakers who don't want military or natural-disaster violence in their films but who still want to add some special-effects-style action. Ads appear on each page, which can be distracting.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
