Satisfying For Fans of Original, Not For Kids
First thing you should know about The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is that it is a prequel to Jim Henson’s classic movie The Dark Crystal. The original movie is notorious for it’s dark atmosphere and sometimes disturbing visuals.
Age of Resistance is masterfully created: Its puppetry and scenery even more impressive than the original. Also, the ability to use CGI makes the action better and allows seemingly impossible puppet movements.
But, with better graphics comes the issues of violence. Age of Resistance whole-heartedly embraces the original’s dark tone, and even adds some violence. Several scenes (such as when one antagonist beats a protagonist to death, causing blood to spatter on the walls) actually push the TV-PG limit. Aside from the dark atmosphere and several bloody and disturbing scenes, this show is incredibly inspiring and visually beautiful. Of course it depends on the child, but mostly 12 and up could handle it.
