Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated PG for mild action
I got this for my kids aged 12, 10, 8 and 4, and it didn’t strike a chord with any of them. The script was lousy and old fashioned and cgi was lame – kids are very aware of bad cgi because they watch great stuff by major studios, so when low budget stuff comes out, they don’t buy it. That aside, there just wasn’t enough real drama or tension to keep them interested. To be honest it may have been better if it had gone more down the fantasy route in a committed way- the faux realism in this case became the egg that just didn’t hatch.
