This movie probably has more fighting in it than dialog, which says something about how well the dialog is written. It is not as funny as some would hope, relying instead on the biting, punching, stabbing, and physical moments, some which are played for laughs but some of which could quite possibly frighten younger viewers. It is definitely written as dark humor, and unfortunately it is in the language and violence categories which the movie fails in terms of being a family-friendly film.
There are a few strong slang remarks used for male genitalia and testicles, and although the violence is seldom very bloody, there is just a whole lot of it in the movie. We are therefore unable to award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this film. Look no further than “Astro Boy” right now for wholesome and imaginative entertainment for your family.
