When Yankee and his dad are looking at Babe Ruth's bat in the Yankee's locker room, the dad says how Babe Ruth had it custom made 3 years ago, and Yankee replies how that was the first season Babe Ruth hit 50 home runs. Since the movie is set in 1932, it would mean that 1929 was Babe Ruth's first 50hr season. Babe had already had 4 50hr seasons-1920, 1921, 1927, 1928, and did not hit 50hr in 1929 at all. See more »
Oh, yes, EH's language is safe for kids. No f-, d-, b-, s-words at all. General ideas of taking care about parents, and believing in yourself are OK. Yes, Finding Nemo or Bug's life were about the same points, but that's the only thing, which they have in common.
Animation is visually plain and poor in design, nothing to compare with Pixar's production. The most disappointing thing about EH was animation of stunts. When animators didn't have a clue how to solve a stunt they just added supernatural abilities to realistic heroes. Stretching limbs, twisting spine, etc. Dialogs and lines were at level of that garbage animation on Nickelodeon, times inferior to Pixar's scripts.
There is one thing I found weird about the Hero as a parent. 7 year old 3D-boy easily jumps between moving trains, dangles at 20-meter height, runs from home, talks to homeless people, and this is served as right things to do, no doubts or warnings. As my 6 y.o. son likes to repeat after heroes I'm not sure it's perfectly safe to show him this flick. No, I'm not a cuckoo parent obsessed with safety. While watching Incredibles or Harry Potter he knew that they were supernatural, so he didn't want to repeat after them. But together with EH's finale message of "despite of you're small, you can do everything" I'm not that sure.
And the last point - it's absolutely not enjoyable for adults, so calling it a family movie is a big exaggeration.
