Just got back from seeing this tonight and I have to say I dont know what all the hype is about. Also at our cinema (odeon) they have a disclaimer saying that although it is a 12A they say it is for adult audiences due to the violence and menacing scenes (or words to that effect).
My ex husband took our son today also - unbeknown to me until afterwards - and I am not best chuffed that he has seen it - He's 10 and I dont think this film is suitable for his age and dont think he should have been taken
Any views on the film in general?
I have teenage friends who said it was really good but I think I'd rather have stayed with a takeaway!

12A – Suitable for 12 years and over. No-one younger than 12 may see a ‘12A’ film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult. No-one younger than 12 may rent or buy a ‘12’ rated video or DVD. Responsibility for allowing under-12s to view lies with the accompanying or supervising adult.

if ur son paints his face..start to worry

what sort of films do you usually go for then Aquatic?

He went with his father - I knew nothing about it
Its not his father that will deal with any nightmares he might have!
I know what a 12A means. I told you what our Odeon says they think it should be
I wondered what other peoples opinions of the FILM are!

I usually only get to see the kids films but saw Indiana Jones recently and enjoyed that. Have seen quite a few freebies with Seefilmfirst. including Last King of Scotland, Rabbit fever, Juno, Blood Diamond, Ratatouille, Stardust, Garfield
Recently watched The Prestige on dvd which i enjoyed. so a mixed bag really (except I dont do horror)

Aimed at who in particular? and why?????

I thought it was a great film, better than the last Indy film anyway.
But would have to agree it is a bit strong for a 12A.
#10
I enjoyed it, some of the scenes made me jump though and some made me not wanna look.

Everyone has different tastes, reading through the film selection you've posted I wouldn't think it would be your type of film. While I enjoyed it personally, I would agree with you about taking a ten year old to it - I think that's pretty young for the film.

The Indy film was so corny in places - thats why I enjoyed it. Took me back many years to the first ones!

Possibly not my kind of film - have been to see others more grown up - Last King of Scotland was in that category! but as a single mum with a 10 year old - most of the films are more for him than me - although that doesnt say I dont enjoy them too!

I'd say it was a bit too much for a super hero film. but i dont think it is over the top for a 10yr old. Depends if he is a bit sensitive to violence, then its a bad idea.. specially if ur ex didnt tell you about it before doing it. If you're son is into super heroes and stuff, then dont worry about it... just make sure he has action figures to play with..

there is a saying that i always heard when i was a kid.."Empty time/mind is a devils workshop"
hence action figures to keep him occupied!!!
I never had a minute to get bored and think about mischief.. lol... !! Take care

I have'nt seen the film myself, but i agree with you some 12A films are way OTT. I'm not sure I would take my kids to see this one.
#16
All i can say that both Christian Bale and Aaron Eckhart are both dead sexy and I left the cinema feeling all hot and horny. LOL
great eye candy for us girls:thumbsup:
#17
James Bond and Pirates (the first one - not sure about the others) were 12A (I think - i'm sure someone will correct me if i am wrong) and I dont think they compare. I think I'd have rather had it as a 15 personally and with the notice in the cinema I think the Odeon think it should be a higher rating than it is
#18
I thought it was excellent, pencil trick, say no more :giggle:
#19
I can't wait to see it been trying to hold off until next week so i can watch it the night before i have an opperation hubby and i always do something special the night before not sure if i can wait that long though lol

heath ledger is a shoe-in for the oscar, and not just with the sympathy vote.
he was a sosciopath in that film, plain and simply nuts.

best film of the year so far and very quickly overtaking titanic as the highest grossing film of all time. deservedly so IMHO

but not for a 10 year old. it should have been a 15
banned#21
great fillm , and now way should children under 16 see it is rather violent ,
#22
Loved the film, so did the wife who i didnt think would. I would definately not think it was suitable for a 10yo. As has been said previously, the pencil trick is a bit violent lol
#23
I think the reason that it made a 12a is that although violence is shown, as far as I remember you don't actually see any blood or anything.

which doesnt mean that everyone thinks there is non! The implied images could well be more graphic than if they actually filmed all the gore!

Well as i said, you dont see much in the pencil scene but the implied violence is still quite strong.
