All teen and kid member reviews for The Village

Teen, 14 years old Written byBennyY April 11, 2011

good for teens, younger ppl might not understand it.

When I watched this movie I was in the mood for a thriller monster movie and was dissapointed. It wasn't right for my current mood. But looking back I can appreciate it for the kind of movie it was. A good mood to be in when you watch The Village is a want for something eerie. It is a good social commentary when you find out the scariest creatures are closer than you think...

Suggested MPAA rating: PG for frightening situations, and a brief scene of violence.

Shyamalan could've done better, but not too bad

Everybody complains about how bad this movie is. I actually enjoyed it. Now, it's not like I want to see it over and over again, but it was enjoyable. But, it's not that scary. I mean, there's violence, peril, some scary images. Okay, maybe it's a little scary...

not too scary

this movie isnt really that scary. I dont really like horror movies, and dont watch any movies like paranormal activity. This movie really wasnt very scary. My 9 year old brother didnt even think so. One violent scene is shown. No swearing or anything else bad but some frightening situations.

Not Sacry, Erie...

I'm a baby when it comes to scary movies, so idk,but i thought this one was pretty scary, just because of the setting, these characters are kind of stuck in a place do to fear of the unknown, because their crazy leaders ccan't handle the real world, oops iv'e said too much, its a good movie, there is 0 language, but not for little kids... btw i had nightmears, but like i said im a baby, nightmear before christmas still freaks me out!

more family friendly than signs, but not carebears or anything

ok, pg-13 is perfect. its not really innapropriate (with the exception of one violent scene) but hard to sit through if your like under 13, but 11+ can see it.

This is more family friendly that what commonsense.com says.

This movie has peril in the end and a little bit towards the beginning. Also one character is stabbed to death by a mentally retarded man ( he is medically retarded).

Perfect for teenagers but not young children

This movie has one scene of violence, yet it is mild.

boring movie, maybe for 12-14

i think it is a bad movie, but it isnt the worst one ever. there is so much talking and hardly any action. there is a scene where a man gets stabbed by a knife, and it is sort of bloody. there isnt any positive messages, especially the man getting stabbed. it is also pretty scary in a few parts. i gave it iffy for 12+ because some violence and blood, scariness, innapropriate themes, and also because there is so much talking anyone under 12 will be bored to death by it. i do not know how i made it through the movie without falling asleep.

Mature teens+.

Most of this movie, I think could generally be acceptable for 13+, but some parts push that, ie graphic descriptions of violent and sometimes s**ual crimes, and a bloody murder scene. Not for young kids.

Most of this movie would probably be ok for most children who are 13+, but there are some scenes that push that. There's a disturbing murder sequence, and a brief sequence where characters discuss horrible, and sometimes s**ually innappropriate things that happened to their family members. Some very tense moments.

THE BEST MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE! MY FAVORITE MOVIE OF ALL TIME! I'M NOT EVEN JOKING! PLEASE READ!

the best movie I have ever seen in my life, it has the strong connection with the characters, a thought provoking message and story that will stay with you forever, powerful acting, and it is so exquisetely beautiful. I get so angry when people do not appreciate movies like this and say it is a waste of time. They obviously know nothing about movies, and for an added bonus I make movies myself, so yeah i do know. This truly is (i'm not joking) my favorite movie of all time. Praise the lord for m. night shyamalan! Amen

Pretty good...

This movie suprised me. I didn't think it would be that good, but if you can get through the first twenty minutes, the rest is amazing. There is no sex whatsoever and maybe two exclamations of 'oh my G-d'. Violence: There is a stabbing, a guy holds up his hands, which are covered in blood. Another 'creature' attempts to attack someone, but ends up falling and dying. There are some VERY intense moments, but nothing graphic in this movie. I highly recommend it.

Idiotic thriller, misuses cast

I am extremly dissapointed with M. Night Shymalan's VILLAGE! The wonderful cast is misused and the screenplay is terrible. I did jump 2 times, and Sigorney Weaver saved the movie, but over all this is another SIGNS.

BORING!!!

The Village is not Mr. Shalamons best work. In most parts it was so boring that my dad fell a sleep (of course he had all ready seen it with my sister)! But, when there was the "scary" parts, it wasn't that bad. the violent parts are disgusting and puke worthy.

Yet another masterpiece by M. Night Shyamalan, The Village teaches us about the life of a village that is isolated in the 1800s. They believe in happiness without money, but a strange illness is attacking the village. A man asks for permission to go through the forest for medicine. But in the forest lurks a monster that lives in peace without intruders...
