Black Nativity. SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The violence is not even violence. to me it's the intensity. It's not very intense but the tension kind of lifts up when Langston (unknowingly) points a gun at his father. Jacob Latimore and Forrest Whitaker are good in this movie. Should have been PG-13 due to thematic elements. Kids can handle it it just seems like it would be a little to much and confusing for kids under 8 or 7.
