I took my 9 year old daughter to see this movie, thinking I would be using her as my pass to see a kids movie that I really wanted to see. Boy was I wrong. She was utterly bored and sleeping before the ending credits rolled. This is NOT a kids movie at all. There isn't a lot of gory stuff, however there is more dialog than a kid wants to hear. I also expected a certain level of "cornballness" to the movie, which I was pleasantly surprised to not have found.

I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. I thought the script was well done and developed - a nice twist on a childhood classic. The acting and cast were wonderful and the cinematography was great. My father, myself, and my kids all went - three generations that all enjoyed the movie.

I took my 9-year old son to this one and we both LOVED it! Want to see it again in 3D this time. Great action, great story, well done. I think it would be too scary for little kids but 8+ are ok for sure.

We went with a group age range 20-75 and all of us loved it. Yes, there were a few holes but it was fun and enjoyable. I don't think it would have been worth going 3D.

We took our boys ages 15 & 12 to see this for their first IMAX 3D experience. They really enjoyed it. The graphics were great, story line was pretty good, and just an overall good family movie with older children. Some scenes may not be suitable for younger children. The only thing I was disappointed in was the lack of 3D effects. Not worth paying $15.00 a piece for; your better off seeing it on the regular screen.
