the prince of egypt is not for little kids

i think the prince of Egypt is a amazing movie but its not for little kids because its very vilonte and intense the Egyptians whip slaves with whips the main character has a nightmare and in his nightmare theirs a Egyptian who takes a mother and her baby off-screen and kills them theirs a picture shown of the Egyptians throwing babies into a river filled with alligators a Egyptian almost whips a old man to death but the main character saves him by pushing the Egyptian off the structure to his death God tells moses to put his staff down and he turns the river into blood the city gets burned down a fog comes down from the sky and kills lots of kids and they even show a kid die on-screen and the water comes down and drowns all of the Egyptians except the main characters brother theirs also a very Adult sexual innuendo where the main character orders a man to go to the bed chambers with a girl with that being said i think the prince of Egypt is for teens and adults and i dont reccomend it for anyone under the age of 13
