age 9+
I think this movie is great it looks real . good CGI . This movie is better than the movie Moon Fall. I think 9 and up can see this movie but if you have a kid who is sensitive to scary parts skip the scary parts like a man hitting another man with a hammer or the gory parts of the film
age 15+

Intense and unnerving

This is an intense movie with chaos and violence. It is meant for an older audience. It is apocalyptic and might be unsettling these days for young people with the pandemic, the recent unrest with politics, and uprisings of 2020.

This title has:

Too much violence
