Too scary for the youngest of kids

You are probably wondering why I put 2 and up if it’s too scary for the youngest kids. It’s because my infant was terrified while watching it. Age 2 and up should be fine. Also, if I was reviewing for myself, it would be five stars. But my child was scared, so it is one star.

This title has:

Too much violence

Voice Over

This movie has a great plot and could have been a good family movie. The voice over translation included at least a dozen profanities. This was not PG due to the excessive, unnecessary bad language.

This title has:

Too much swearing
