Good Show for Teens!

My Hero has been a favorite of my kids for some time. It has positive messages and lots of plot twists. The characters do say an occasional light curse word but other than that I don’t see much wrong with it. Middle school age is perfect.

More than Just "Two Heroes"

MHA: Two Heroes is a FANTASTIC movie. Protagonist Deku boards a plane with his mentor All Might to attend a hero expo, where the two will meet one of Might's old friends, David Shield. Shield is a hero suit designer, and because of his skills, becomes the target of villainy in this feature. And wow, what a plot twist there is in this movie! The UA Class 1A students defy the rules that state that 'students can't fight villains alone' and go up against the forces that dare to threaten everyone at the expo. It's a showdown that leads to an epic finale that bonds student and mentor together in a powerful way. There is some language in this movie, most of it relatively minor. The biggest concern with this movie is the level of violence--there's a lot of it. Not only during scenes with heroes against villains, but there is a scene where a villain shoots a defenseless man and kills him. I'd say this movie has great role models. The heroes never give up and are willing to sacrifice everything they have to save everyone, no matter what pain they have to go through to do it. And MHA always shows that you don't need to have a 'quirk' to be a hero. MHA has never idolized superpowers, but rather the desire to help and to sacrifice one's self for others that makes someone a hero. 5/5 stars.
