I'm 19 and this felt like one of the most violent movies I had seen in a long time. Not because I don't want PG-13 or R rated movies, but because the violence was directed at the child in the movie and being put into his world made you feel terrified at times. Most of the time this feels like watching a movie about a violently abusive husband. Many of the characters have uncontrollable anger issues which break out unexpectedly. The movie constantly switches from happy, almost joyous scenes to angry or scary scenes. All of the characters get hurt repeatedly, especially intentionally, by other characters. As a movie, I loved it, the metaphors, language, and meaning behind all the scenes would spark tons of mature discussion about all kinds of topics. It's also very beautifully and seamlessly done. Not a movie I would ever take kids to see though. I feel like the PG rating is a terrible misnomer. Just because the violence is mostly on the Wild characters, the rendering makes them feel just as real as the human ones. Animation has advanced, the ratings of what counts as "cartoon violence" should too.
