I wasn't blown away by this flick, but I did enjoy it. And I also enjoyed...
1. No potty humor 2. No overt sexuality 3. No inappropriate language 4. No seemingly random 3D FX 5. No politically correct messages or characters 6. No strutting egotism
In short, it's not a Follywood movie and you can actually let your kids watch it without worrying too much. There is some violence, but...
The script is well written, the acting is better than good, and it moves along at a pretty lively pace. Not a classic, but good. It might have been better a little shorter, but that can be said of most movies these days.
I was surprised to hear so many complaints.
