I watched Maleficent with two 7 year-old girls and was admittedly worried
beforehand that it would be too dark and scary for them. After watching the
movie I couldn't disagree more on the comment that this movie is too dark
for children. My girls get frightened way too easily in some movies that I
don't think are that bad, and neither of the girls were ever even remotely
frightened during this movie. They both loved the movie as well. Take your kids,
they will love it. Perhaps kids younger than 4 may not enjoy the story and be
scared during some of the scenes, but I don't think this movie was ever
intended for an audience that young anyhow.
I just came home from the movie with my wife and 5 daughters. They all loved
it. Good Story and good message. We can overcome dark times and love will
My 3 year-old loved it! Great movie and great acting by Jolie.
