Creepiest Angel; violent scenes; not appropriate for children
My kids and I saw this when it was new at the theatre. It's too violent for small children. Showing how loss of a job can cause fighting between parents is okay. Showing a violent shooting is not appropriate for the audience for which this movie is intended.
I was appalled at the angel being portrayed by someone who looks and sounds like a stereotypical child molester. He's dark and he meets one of the children at night when she is not with an adult. I worked hard at teaching my kids not to approach strangers. This movie counters that by showing that a kindly stranger can be your family's best friend.
