Epic film is a style of film-making with large scale, sweeping scope and spectacle, often transporting the viewer to other settings. As Roger Ebert and others have noted, the usage of the term has shifted over time, sometimes designating a film genre and at other times simply synonymous with big budget film-making. Like epics in the classical literary sense it is often focused on a heroic character. An epic's ambitious nature helps to set it apart from other types of film such as the period piece or adventure film.

From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia.

This is a personal list of movies. As the list is long, I'll add other gradually. In this particular list, I considered the period in which action takes place, starting from antiquity to the Middle Ages.
