Great adventure movie!

This is far better than the newer version of Clash of the Titans. We really enjoyed it as a family, but it should be rated PG-13! There were a few scenes of naked breasts and behinds, and it definitely had blood and violence. There was also talk between the gods of Zeus sleeping with many women, and the words "making love" were mentioned. But there was no more actually shown than kisses. The monsters would be scary to younger children, but not for a 13 year old. We love this old movie. It's a great adventure plot, and good acting.

I think it’s ok for four years old

My four year old daughter watched this and she said she loved the movie so I think it’s for four and up.
