Great Stuff

Its hard to find great kids movies that you are okay with for your children and family. If you are looking for something that has the grown up thrill of superhero. Then this is a great movie to choose. And 6th should put it in perspective of the fact that back in the 1950's thus would have been underground, cult phenomenon pop that a multitude of parents would've disliked.

Antboy is a stupidly cheap and horrible movie for 4 year olds

Its a stupid little baby film. If you want a good superhero movie for kids then watch the Incridibles. If you want a good superhero movie for teens then watch the Spider-Man, X-Men and MCU movies, If you want a superhero good movie for adults then watch The Nolan Batman trilogy, Logan, Deadpool, Watchmen and a bunch of other movies
