Best movie I have seen in a long time

I think that the movie is not very violent and kids who are 13+ can watch the movie

Think of it as an action movie, not a horror movie, and it won’t disappoint

I sorta like this film. It’s quite fun, the best of all the 2010-onwards Chucky films. It’s not scary like my 13 year old son was hoping it would be. He wasn’t particularly disgusted by the violence, but winced at some of the worst bits, including Chucky stabbing up inbetween a man’s legs (no nudity if you’re wondering). There are about 15 F bombs but nowadays, kids hear that at school everyday, either from their mates or just passing older years. Overall, it’s very disappointing as a horror movie, but if it was marketed as an action movie it would receive much better reviews.

Too much violence
Too much swearing
