Safe choice with good racial diversity

It was nice to watch a movie with zero sexual content (straight or otherwise) as that seems so hard to find. No raunchy jokes. Nothing inappropriate. There were some fight scenes but being a low budget film the fight seems weren't scary or goary or anything like that. It was also nice to see other cultures.

age 7+
I watched this with my 7 year old. She isn't used to fight scenes and was a little concerned because there's knives involved. But overall, I think it is fine for 7 year olds, particularly if they are used to fight scenes. I don't really understand why this is rated for 11 year olds but Tinkerbell and the Neverbeast is for 5 year olds (that one worried her far more than this one did).

Great movie for 7 and up

This was a very good movie for kids 7 and up. Even younger can watch it because the violence is very minimum. The younger ages may not understand it. I watched it with my 8 year old son and we both really enjoyed it. I am not sure why it was rated 11 and up.

Disappointingly Sappy

I rented it to watch with my 13 year old, and we never got past the first 30 minutes. It's too sappy and squeaky clean for tweens if you ask me--the guy who plays the monk is not just comic, but really goofy and his characterization is uneven. The girl who plays Ling is stiff and uninteresting. The friction between the father and son over the divorce is old and trite. The set makes it look like you just bumble from one quaint hamlet to the next pristine archealogical find when you you visit China. I would set the appropriate age at 9 at the oldest.
