I was greatly anticipating this movie coming out, and I must say it was better then i had imagined. I do think it might ahve been a little too graphically violent for the younger age groups, but overall an awesome movie.

I brought my 3yr old to see this film. We ended up leaving after an hour. It is too dark and scary for little children, not to mention very serious. I probably would have stayed and watched it as an adult, but parents taking kids under 5 might re-think the idea.

a little slow start, but the story of good vs evil, played well to a younger audience.. A battle of heart and right versus anger and wrong choices.. How believeing you are second best can allow the darkness to consume to where you turn on family and friends..

It was a serious subject wrapped up in beautiful animation. It reminded me of Hitler and the 3 Reich without really pointing out any particular time in history. A great movie for learning and education children about those who seek to control. I would not show it to a child under 8 years old, could be scary, but the animation is beautiful.

I am probably the age this is set for (11-13)and I thought it was absolutley amazing! I mean I have never been an effects person but the plot was cute and well thought out. That's the way ti always is with movies that were first books. The Christian element was settle but strong which I liked. It's one of those movies where the adults get it and the kids think the owls are cool. I am still shocked about how the critics poo pooed on it I was for sure this would be the next Lion King but you never know what goes on in other people minds.
