I have only given this 3 stars as i like to watch films like this with my nephews.Sadly it is very simplistic , predictable and has some terrible cgi effects..(Mr bendy)
Having said that you can tell this film is made for kids, there is no gore , no swearing and it is very, very easy to follow.
I have to say the kids found it all very fun to watch. They don't care about effects as they are easily pleased and as for the silver surfer , they just think he's the best thing since superman...( so do i ....shame...)
There are a couple of moments adults can laugh at too but in all honesty it is almost embaracing compared with what we are used to...( ironman, spiderman were much better films by far )
Just try to enjoy the fact your kids are enjoying it......and admit maybe you think the silver surfer is pretty cool!
All in all , this is a very safe film...( in my opinion....still check it out first.) for sensetive kids.
P.s i would say it's a boys film.
