Underrated Movie is Actually Moving/Entertaining/well-structured

Our family is really surprised at the low rating for this movie. We used it to teach structure in Novel Lab, our kids' novel writing workshop. The kids loved it as much as we did. There are great character arcs/transformations. It promotes good values and the story is well-executed. There is some killing by bows and arrows, but it is not gratuitous, you don't see much close-up. But there is no sex, drinking, materialism or language which is nice.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models

Way too much violence for kids -- an adults only film.
