Inappropriate and strange

This movie does not specifically state the location it is supposed to take place, however the poiti of the police car, I assume must be German. This makes it strange because the princess has a very strong southern accent while also obviously being dumb with is a terrible stereotype. In another scene the other police officer struggles to dance around the question of why he can’t have babies and he explains it bc he doesn’t have a girlfriend. A love interest which looks like she is 13 on vacation with her mother and this man is obviously more mature. I certainly felt that there were other moments that were borderline inappropriate.

Too many sexual innuendos

Definitely a budget film. My kids (4 & 6) enjoyed this movie but as parents we were appalled. The sexual innuendos were so unnecessary. Two instances of adults being “found” in the bushes and coming out disheveled. Later when one of the females is getting arrested she tells the policeman seductively “I hope you have handcuffs”. Luckily these innuendos went right over my kids’ heads. Definitely not necessary for an Amazon Prime KID video and not required for the story line.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (12):
Kids say (2):

There's some nice-looking animation here, and loads of positive messages about protecting the environment, not littering, and keeping animals safe. BOLD EAGLES is a Norwegian film with English audio overdubbed. The names on the car and some signage don't match up with the English being spoken, but overall it's pretty seamless. However, parents may want to explain one character who's rather overzealous in her plans to kill and stuff the animals to turn a profit; animals in cages; a baby eagle separated from her mother; and an emotional scene in which the eagle doesn't recognize her own mother or want to go with her. This movie is better for slightly older kids.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
