Decent Movie for the 6-12 Age Group

This is a decent kid’s movie. The intense situations aren’t extremely scary, but maybe a little too much for children under six. As a southerner, I’m rolling my eyes at the stereotypical bad guys portrayed as an ignorant Confederates who think the Civil War never ended. C’mon Hollywood! Can’t we get beyond that? I thought the script and acting by the young teens and adults was pretty good. I’ve seen far worse, given the budget! My six and nine-year-old grandchildren couldn’t take their eyes off the screen. They loved it!
