War story

The description on the cover for this video was very misleading, calling it a 'fun family adventure', while the main line of the story is about war and revenge. My seven year old enjoyed the battles, but my four year old was scared and very sad when they showed the deaths of some of the elephants. Additionally, the video quality is not that great with the characters looking wooden and jerky.

Too much violence
