Exciting and sometimes scary adventures in Egypt and Paris

The movie is exciting and should be OK for kids above 11. But many scenes are quite violent for younger children. The details of how Adele's sister got in her sorry state are scary, and graphic details caused my 8 year old daughter to have nightmares.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
