It's a very good movie

Written by 8yo boy: I used to watch this movie when I was younger. At the time, I was scared of the divers who capture Nemo. But now I don't find it scary anymore. Overall, it's a very good movie. Some scenes are a little intense. So I think kids at least 6 years old will enjoy it.
