Yes, I am very late. I didn't see this until recently.
ANYWAY...this movie is amazing. It is a welcome reward for those who had to live through the abomination that was the first movie. There are good messages of friendship and teamwork and the like. But there are definitely some things that are not appropriate for younger crowds. Violence and scariness: In the finale, the villains become demonic sirens with glowing red eyes and wings. They send an explosion into the crowd to make them slaves. The sirens are destroyed by the Rainbooms when they use a giant magic alicorn that sends a laser blast down, shattering them to pieces. Sexy stuff: Most of the outfits are short. The Dazzlings act VERY seductive and suggestively touch everyone they walk by. One scene has a very subtle reference to lesbians. Language: Nothing too serious, but a few insults such as "idiot" and "you're the worst." Some villain songs have lyrics such as "Your time is running out" and "Time to finish you." Consumerism: Oh gosh, where to begin? It's Hasbro, enough said. Drinking, drugs, and smoking: None, but it's hinted that everyone is acting strangely because of "too much fruit punch." Overall, it's a good movie to watch with older kids, and teens and adults can enjoy it by themselves. Definitely worth checking out.
