There were demons and darkness and lots of scary scenes. Not for kids under 10.

I took my 9 year old sister to see this movie. She really liked it; some of the scenes scared her but it didn't bother her too much. I thought it was a creative movie. A little slow at times but otherwise it was very good.

My whole family loved this film; however, my ten-yr-old thought the villains were a bit scary and she spent a good deal of the movie with her face covered in my shoulder. But otherwise it was fantastic.

Details like these are delightful. So is the notion of Stonehenge as a transport hub to another temporal plane, and the spectacle of Alex and his dauntless cohorts in tin armor they’ve bought in a souvenir shop. What’s destructive, and eventually benumbing, is the kitchen-sink clutter of fantasy, reality, wish-fulfillment and glib enchantment. To say that the film lacks simplicity would be an oversimplification.

[An] earnest, entertaining and imaginative old-meets-new adventure.

The action is lively and quick-paced, and then suddenly over — at which point the film gets to hammer down some of its more wholesome messages.
