This is a 12 in the UK and I would be happy for any 12 year old to watch it, no problem, under 12, it's really down to the parent. The film itself is pretty good, Jackman is great, I hate the part near the end where the boys aunt faints (really unrealistically) at the end of a round of robot boxing, because it's just too cheesy but overall it's not bad. There are some great positives, such as the dad learning how to be a dad: After basically abandoning his child for years, he learns that his kid is more important than how much money he can get his hands on. There is also a lovely scene where he climbs into bed with the woman that he is sort of involved with and the have a cuddle! Nice that they have avoided unnecessary sexiness here. The woman also is a strong character who helps the father to learn some valuable lessons about parenting and is a positive female role-model, however I hate the way the kids aunt and uncle are portrayed. They are sensible with money, therefore they have it, they want custody of the kid because they think his dad is useless (which he actually is at first) and they could give him a good life, they don't swear and they are concerned when the child is involved in a fight, so basically they should be really good role models but they are portrayed as stuffy, delicate, fussy upper middle class twits! For me the robot violence isn't an issue for any child 10+ as it is fantasy, there is the scene where Jackman gets beaten up in front of his son by 3 blokes but you can easily turn it around and chat with older kids about how they could have resolved the situation differently, and although Jackman gets totally pummeled the boy still declares "he is my father" proudly and quite rightly isn't ashamed that his dad lost a fight where he was totally outnumbered. There is gambling but I think there is a lesson to learn there too when a man looses a bet along with a million! The language is probably the biggest issue for me, especially when the child is swearing. Overall I think it has the right rating, and I personally would be happy for kids 10+ to watch it as long as they are mature and you talk some of the issues over with them after the film.
