Harry Potter is the best movie!
I think this movie was really great it was action packed and still enabled kids to learn lessons from. I don't think there was anything wrong with the movie that kids shouldn't watch. Personally i watched this movies at the age of 4 and been watching it since. I have taken my little sibbling and cousins with me and they loved the movies. There is a little violence and sometimes there is langage and the characters looks can maybe scare a kid. Though explain to the kids about the movie or do what i do show them behind the scenes to show them thats its fake. I think it's a great movie to watch with the family or during a party or with friends. The movie should be welcomed to all ages though i think five and over might be more suitable so that the kids understand a bit more than what they would if they where younger.
We all enjoy the Harry Potter movies... When we can't decide on something, we watch Harry Potter! It's a great movie that certainly has great messages, and positive role models. The violence is minimal. The scariest parts for younger kids are the death of Professor Quirrell (who is a bad guy, an eight year old i watched this with cheered) and the part when Nearly Headless Nick shows his bloody neck (very briefly). It's a great family movie.
The most kid-friendly of them all. As Good as the Book
[On] for kids 8+ (Good Role-Models, Positive Messages)
[Pause] for kids 7 to 6 (There is languige, but flys over any kid's head who don't understand Europian Accents)
[Off] for kids 5- (Violence period is a No for kids 5 and under)
Common Sense Media said that there is "a dead and bloody unicorn". Yes, the unicorn is covered in blood, BUT, the blood is silver and doesn't look like human blood. At the end of the movie, Harry has some cuts he got from the flying keys but nothing too bad. Also, Harry, Ron, and Hermione are positive role models because they risk their lives to save The Sorcerer's/Philosopher's Stone.
This is my favorite Harry movie! The rest of the movies are awesome (I can't believe the Harry Potter saga is ending! I Can't wait to see the last one!) but the first is always gonna be a classic! There are a few parts that could be a little intense for kids but that deppends on who your kid is. Love it!!!

The start of something special
I first saw this movie when I was 5 and I thought it was awesome the only part that scared me was when Harry opens the book and it starts screamin. I grew up on the Harry potter movies and recomend to all
If you are looking for an adventure filled and action packed movie this is the one. The characters try to save their school, because they care and that shows them being great role models. This movie isn't for small chilldren, not because it's bad, just because they won't understand whats really going on. I really don't want to spoil anything at all, but I do recommend the books a lot more. Just give it a shot and you will love it!!
