Parent of a 2 and 3 year oldWritten byMommaOfTwooJuly 25, 2014
This movie was lacking so much, it's just not worth sitting through it. The children are disrespectful, their mentor is a bully and in the end the bad guy gets off scot free with no consequences. Not something I want my children to think is ok.
I watched this movie with my friends children, ages 8 and 12 and it's safe to say that only the 8 year old was interested. We talked about it afterwards and all agreed that the plot was missing, and the ending wasn't very good. They didn't like that the bad guy got away with doing all those bad things, and I didn't like it either. Also, there was some distasteful language. This movie overall was boring and the acting wasn't very good either.
This movie is amazing. As a kid this was my dad and I's show. If your daughter isn't really into superheroes, she will be after this movie. This is an amazing movie for an entire family that will entertain the whole family. There are NO SEXUAL REFERENCES, NO SMOKING, NO DATING, NO DRUGS.
Most of what I thought has already been covered quite well by this site, with one exception. Why is the bad guy just forgiven at the end with not a mention of anything he did? Oh gee, you killed people we loved, but that's okay, we won't even talk about it. What kind of message are we sending to our children? It's ok to kill...we forgive you! What garbage! The movie was just barely ok (as today's lack of respect standards go)up until then. The lack of punishment or mention of remorse from the bad guy really topped it off for me. Think twice. I will not rent this film when it comes out. Give me "Sky High" instead!
