COMMENTS: THIS ACTION PACKED ANIMATED ADVENTURE HAS COMPLEX AND MATURE THEMES THAT EXPLORE THE ANTICS OF A SUPERHERO FAMILY DEFYING THE LAW TO SAVE PEOPLES LIVES. THEMES EXPLORED INCLUDE PARENTING BOTH FUNCTIONAL AND DYSFUNCTIONAL, SUPER HERO CHILDREN ASSERTING THEIR WISHS TO FIGHT CRIME AGINST A VENGEFUL ANTAGONIST WHO KEEPS THEIR PARENTS HOSTAGE IN A STATE OF MIND CONTROL. OTHER THEMES INCLUDE TEAMWORK, DISCOVERING ONES SUPER POWERS AND LEARNING TO CONTROL THEM.
THESE THEMES WHICH ARE LACED WITH A LOW SENSE OF THREAT AND MENACE ARE MITIGATED BY THE PRO-SOCIAL MESSAGE OF GOOD OVERCOMING EVIL, THE FAMILY WORKING TOGETHER AND THE COMICAL, ANIMATED CONTEXT OF THE STORY. ALTHOUGH THE FILM IS BASED IN FANTASY, WITH SUPER HEROES DOING UNREALISTIC THINGS, THE CUMULATIVE IMPACT OF ALL CLASSIFIABLE ELEMENTS INCLUDING THEMES WHERE PARENTS ARE BEING HELD HOSTAGE, FREQUENT VIOLENCE WHICH IS BOTH ACTION BASED AND PHYSICAL, LANGUAGE, WHICH ALTHOUGH INCLUDES THROW AWAY LINES, TOGETHER WITH USE OF SUBSTANCE (ALCOHOL) IN SOME OF THE SCENES, IS WITHIN THE TOLERANCE LEVEL OF ALL CHILDREN PROVIDED THAT PARENTAL GUIDANCE IS SUPPLIED FOR SUPPORT AND CONTEXT.
