|A Parental Review of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT)" for Concerned Parents:|
This will be a very short review, as I actually only saw about 25 minutes of the movie. My son wanted to go see this, so I went to the normal family movie review sites that I generally visit to check out if it might be appropriate for a 5 year old.
The reviews I read seemed to indicate that if he was used to the television cartoon version, he would be fine with the movie. Same kind of action/fighting and while it had some adult themes (two characters living together apparently out of wedlock) those weren’t something a young child would pick up on.
What no review said, and what we discovered after only a few minutes, was that this movie is packed with some pretty scary monsters. At first I would cover my son’s eyes and told him he could watch when the turtles were on the screen, but once they started fighting the monsters it got pretty intense.
So we left and I felt like the worst parent in the world. So here’s my opinion on the movie, if your kid doesn’t like monsters or scenes that will make him/her jump out of their seat, this movie isn’t for them.
