This was a great movie! It is a subtitled movie so you do have to read as the movie plays. The only problems with this movie are the violence and the language. There are a few extremely violent scenes. In one scene the Spanish general smashes an innocent farmers nose in with a beer bottle killing him, then he shoots him in the head(which is very gruesome).As I said before the movie is subtitled,but they do use extremely vulgar words on-screen.But this is a great movie adults will enjoy.
This is one of the best movies of all time. i don't recommend this for younger viewers, there are some very brutal scenes of intense gore, a teen gets his face smashed in and shot, a man has his leg amputated, a very disturbing monster bites off fairy's heads and blood streams down his face, a man is stabbed twice and then his cheek cut ( he kind of deserved it, though) a little girl is shot, a man is smashed with a hammer, lots of guns and shooting, a woman is giving birth and lots of blood is shown, (no nudity, though) and she dies. swears such as b!#ch, F*#k, and b@$t@rd. very good movie, good story, and the little girl dose not really die, not telling because spoilers. you may pick up on some spanish, too. :P
Pan's Labyrinth is a fim that I can't say enough about when people say "What do you think is the best film of the last 10 years?" It's a hard toss between Pan's Labyrinth and There Will Be Blood, but I have no problem saying Pan's Labyrinth to whoever asks.
The film itself is so beautiful, that I will suggest to teens to watch it immediately if they can handle the violence. As I just stated, the film is disturbing and at-times very dark; but the wonderful story and in some moments stunningly beautiful images bring that violence into the background, suggesting that the violence is needed to tell this wonderful story.
The acting, writing, directing and cinematography is absolutely jaw-dropping, I will never understand how this didn't even get nominiated for a Oscar for Best Picture and it didn't even win for best foreign language film!!
It is also a spanish film so subtitles are needed if you don't understand spanish as well. I also highly suggest to watch the film without subtitles after watching it once to just watch the images that basically tell the story.
There were a few parts where I sorta felt like looking away because of the violence. Violence is pretty much the only big issue in this film, including a bloody scene involving smashing a bottle on a mans face and cheek getting sliced. The movies goes back and forth from a kid friendly fairy tale feeling to a violent war setting. I would say 14+.
Beatiful, stunning, great. Parents need to know that there is some war violance, but not to gory or violent, go straight ahead with this one, just fastforward through th opening war sequence, also the s-word is said once in subtitles.
I first saw this when I was 6 years old. It gave me nightmares. All I remember from watching it that first time was being scared to death. It is a dark, disturbing, and extremely twisted fairy tale told through a young girl's eyes. I definitely shouldn't have seen it that young. I saw it again a couple years later and it is absolutely gorgeous. Very violent, but a gorgeous film. (I still probably shouldn't have watched it, but I already did, so what's the point?) An absolutely spectacular movie.
great movie, but more for people who can deal with having to read subtitles throughout the movie 'cause the whole movie is spoken in spanish, and creepieness. there are alot of scary characters and scenes. I love this movie
This movie is actually a grown ups' fairy tale, Pan's Labyrinth is one of the most famous movie known for acting and imagination, the story is one of a kind it describes what a loneliness of children can lead to, the acting is phenomenal and the scenes are magic, it is simply magic add to a movie, it makes the watcher memorized and it thought provoke him/her, it is sad and a tragedy, but the best and one of a kind, it is not a movie for young kids, because maybe they will enjoy the effects but the story is way to complex for young kids.
What Happens When Make-Believe Believes it's Real?
A beautiful movie fueled by magnificent performances, amazing, visuals, and lots of imagination. Recommended but there is violence, including a semi-graphic torture scene and also a somewhat lengthy scene in which a glass is smashed in someone's face and someone is shot up close. The f-word is not too overused but there is some language. A.
