Pretty true to the books

My daughter is 10 and really enjoyed it as she had read the books. I think however that this and the series are more for 11+ because the violent and references generally but perhaps if they are mature and have read the books it might be ok for them

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 10+


I think this is a great movie for kids 10 and older. This movie is based on the series which I have been reading. Its awesome too. It does have guns but no blood. I give this movie an A+.

This title has:

Too much violence
