A Hidden Gem

This is a great movie.There is some violence/scary scenes such as someone being chased by sharks, people being attacked by wolves, and the villain catching everyone in cage. However there is no blood or deaths. The movie is free from any bad language or bathroom humor. I highly recommend it.

Great messages
Great role models
