Mission to Mars

Great movie that your kids will love. As mentioned by Spud, there are 2 scenes that could be disturbing for younger audiences. Other than that, its a film thats definitely worth the watch.

Great role models
not rated for age
I’m pretty surprised they rated this PG. The language was pretty excessive (even for a PG-13), including the “G” word. Two scenes get pretty disturbing. One person literally flies apart in a wind funnel, and another scene shows a frontal view of a person’s face frozen solid. Definitely no less then PG-13 content.
