Great movie but too violent for kids

Amazing movie, in the top three batman movies period. But it may be way to violent and bloody for kids under 13, and suggestive for 13-14 yr olds. Still, amazing movie nonetheless! I do think the violence is not as bad as people say because, I mean, it's animated!

very good movie

I gave this a yellow 10 because i watched this the first time when i was ten, but parents may choose to not let their 10 year old watch this. It's a very good movie, but it is very violent. There is blood, guns, 2 brutal fights between Batman and the Muntant Leader, and a few killings. As for language, their is one use of the a- word, and a few other mild profanitys. Their's absolutly NO sex, but Bruce Wayne is portrayed to be a heavy drinker. This is a very great movie, but i only recommend it if you are very brave.

Dark, mature, entertaining - just great...

... buuut not for your tween fan. Apart of extreme violence for a PG-13, there's some things like fantastic media satire that make the movie hard to understand for a 12. For everyone up of that, go for it - it's a fantastic movie
