Just as good the 328th time...

My son loves this movie, it's his first cult favorite.
Parent Written byEl M. October 13, 2017

Enjoyable with not too much scary or suspense

My 3.5 and 5.5 year olds enjoyed this movie, although the 3.5 year old was a little bored towards the end. There is a part where Thomas goes 'off the rails' and discovers Hiro in the forest - and it's definitely a part where both my kids where a bit worried. However, it was really the only scary part and the other slightly tricky issues related to conflict. But I thought the teamwork side of things was great in this movie, not to mention Thomas being kind, and all in all I would be happy for the kids to watch it without me next time, aside from that first forest scene which I would sit in on again.
