This movie is funny and imaginative. In one scene the character of Roddy the rat gets a piece of popcorn in his eye and he uses a doll’s hand to whack himself on the back so the piece of popcorn pops out. Several kids and adults laughed at that scene and many others at the screening I attended. There is non-stop action in the movie from beginning to end and the young won’t get bored. In fact, many adults won’t either. The voice talent is great with such actors as Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Ian McKellen and Andy Serkis being involved in the project.
However, the film is rated PG and due to a lot of violence and mild language, we recommend the film for ages twelve and above. There is also some belching and flatulence and gross humor.
