Way too scary for sensitive 7 year old

Based on other reviews I was shocked by how much peril there was. Why is it so hard to find movies where the bad guy doesn't get that much screen time? Lots of guns and shooting. My son is sensitive to emotional turmoil and was disturbed to the point of crying and running out over the possibility that Wallace might hurt his friend. We had to stop the movie four times. His review: "Scarier than what I thought because usually rated Gs are ok for me but this wasn't ok. It was okay because I had my mom and dad to be here and that helps me and I was able to stop the movie and that was really was awesome I would say it should be a PG movie. The were-bunny was was scary."

Scary for young kids, unlike show.

Is It Any Good?

By turns antic and lovely, this is a fitting big-screen debut for the beloved claymation stars Wallace (voiced by Peter Sallis) and Gromit. At once a clever send-up of classic horror movies (of 1930s-'40s sort, including Wolfman and Frankenstein), an entertaining assembly of wordplay and visual gags, and even a bit of an insightful character study, How does Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit set up a nice tension between the very cute rabbits who are, admittedly, gobbling up the town's vegetable gardens and the monstrous were-rabbit? reportedly took five years to make, as Nick Park and Steve Box and a crew of hundreds posed each clay figure frame by frame.
