Fun, clean, family adventure movie.

Scary thought of child being hunted and family killed, but otherwise fun, clean and very family-friendly.

A better tale than expected!

I wasn't sure I would like this movie, after reading lukewarm reviews... but it was much better than expected! After cringing through the overt sexuality and adult themes (with my 12 year old beside me) and never ending crashes of Transformers, I was delighted at this movie. The story was interesting. The characters were engaging, the acting believeable, and the female warrior Mira was a great role model! On-screen deaths were edited just shy of gory,(i.e.you never SAW the knife strike, as opposed to many other (LOTR) movies, which I loved, but were too violent for my kids) blood was cosmetic, not gushing. The pacing was fast, but not overwhelming.. and the ending was a good (if not unexpected) one. Kids 10 and up would be fine if they were used to movies like "Willow" or "Narnia". I'd like to see it again!
