Better than expected and some good messages
We went back and forth, do we take our 5 year old or not take him? There was not enough info online to validate, so we opted to go with the other kids and parents going and we just talked it over with him before the movie...the reminder about movie vs. real life. He gets that. Great movie. I can't tell you the great message he got from the movie because it will give away a portion of the film, but it was positive. It has a value story of family and taking care of others. It totally surprised me. Action, yes, but there is so much happening and the action is quick-paced. No blood that I saw. Lots of humor for kids and adults. Cuss words: I heard bad**s once, but it was said softly. They say a*s once and it is obvious. Other words used once each are "hate" and "stupid". Overall, I was pleasantly surprised. Great storyline, but I am not a diehard TMNT fan, so I just wanted to be entertained. It succeeded.
