Too adult themed for younger audiences
This movie is currently recommended for 6 and 8 year olds, but I think the movie has themes too mature for those ages. It has references to puberty and a girl getting her period, which can bring up questions for discussion for children not yet educated in those topics. It also has violence that can be too scary, which led us to fast forward over various sections. Various situations include men shooting tranquilizer darts at women, causing them to pass out; one woman being bound with rope and having duct tape on her mouth; and men often pointing harpoons or other weapons at women. The single African-American man in the movie is single-minded towards killing the 12-year old girl to progress his career. The conflict between the group of men and the group of women is eventually resolved at the end of the movie which in itself can be a good lesson for children; however, just after this happens, the girl contradicts this lesson and uses her power to kill the African-American man in a gruesome manner reminiscent of a B-rate movie. Additionally, there is a blonde woman character thrown in who is gratuitously dumb, apparently for comic relief. And lastly, while the group of women help the girls grow up, the relationship between the father and son is sadly lacking.
