Fun for the while family with no wokeness.

Such a good movie for the whole family. I went with three of my kids ages 5-13. It was not scary at all! Yes there are some explosions here and there but nothing crazier then what kids see on shows and video games anyway. All the reviews from parents that said it was too scary or they had to leave early are extremely sensitive . I keep a close watch on everything my kids watch and have no problem with them watching this movie. My biggest problem is the agenda show and movies are trying to push and this movie had none of that.

Not for little kids!

Took my son for his fourth birthday. This was his first theatre experience and he was crying and asking to go home halfway into the movie. There is way too much peril and violence for a kids movie and I question the thought process of those who made it. We left.

The adorable rescue pups continue to charm little kids and their parents, and this sweet sequel reminds all viewers that even the tiny can be mighty. For more than 10 years, the PAW Patrol show and its feature-film spin-offs have helped it remain one of the most popular franchises for little kids. Writer-director Cal Brunker ups the action ante in this installment with the addition of superpowers that heighten the pups' existing rescue abilities as they go up against Victoria Vance, a typical movie megalomaniac who cares more about her own grandeur than the risk that her experiments pose on everyone around her.

Skye's subplot will particularly resonate with young audiences, since she initially feels like her small size makes her the team's weakest link. The movie explores her heart-tugging backstory as the unwanted "runt" of her litter, whom Ryder eventually rescues. As the story unfolds, Skye realizes that her self-worth isn't tied to her size but to her inner strength and resilience. Meanwhile, Liberty's character development delves into her apparent lack of a superpower. Looking for a purpose, Liberty focuses on teaching her trio of plucky Junior pups how to be heroes, too. The rest of the team also has individual moments to shine, making this another winning installment in the PAW Patrol universe.
