No thanks

I have 6 kids ages 2 to 12. The baddies are just too creepy for my girls and boys under 10. Glowing eyes, fangs, claws are really all that's going on here.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Somewhere amid the barrage of battles, attacks, and derring-do, there's a thin story and an even thinner attempt to draw distinctive personalities. It's hard to tell the Heroes apart, except for their color or dialect. Even their special skills are difficult to define, though each is supposed to embody the qualities of a mighty animal (bear, eagle, wolf).

The movie finds an easy rhythm: Hero is attacked; Hero defends himself (and they are all male); Hero defeats the fanged, clawed, or spiked creature that threatens him. And all the while, the big baddie laughs his hideous laugh, his eyes aglow with piercing red embers. It's not original; it's not clever or funny, but for kids who like their superheroes dashing, strong, and unstoppable, it's probably enough.

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.
