The new Batman movie, ‘The Batman’, is set to release soon and there has been a lot of buzz surrounding the film. However, one question that parents have been asking is whether the movie is kid-appropriate.
What’s the movie about?
‘The Batman’ is an action-packed superhero movie that follows Bruce Wayne (played by Robert Pattinson) as he becomes the caped crusader and fights against Gotham City’s most infamous villains. The movie has a dark and gritty tone, similar to Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy.
Violence and Action Scenes
As expected from a superhero movie, ‘The Batman’ has numerous action scenes with violence. There are scenes with intense hand-to-hand combat, explosions, and car chases. Some of these scenes may be too intense for younger viewers.
The Dark Tone
One thing that sets ‘The Batman’ apart from other superhero movies is its dark tone. The film explores the psychological trauma that Bruce Wayne goes through after his parents are murdered when he was a child. This theme of trauma and vengeance runs throughout the film and may be too heavy for young children.
Language and Drug Use
‘The Batman’ contains some strong language which may not be suitable for younger viewers. Additionally, there are references to drug use in some scenes which may not be appropriate for children.
Should you take your kids?
While ‘The Batman’ is rated PG-13, it’s important to note that this rating indicates parental guidance suggested – not recommended for children under 13 years of age. Ultimately, it’s up to the parent’s discretion to decide whether their child can handle the content in the movie.
In conclusion, while ‘The Batman’ has a lot of exciting action scenes and a talented cast, it may not be suitable for very young viewers. Parents should take into consideration the film’s dark tone, violence, language and drug use before deciding whether it’s appropriate for their child. As always, it’s important to make an informed decision based on the age and maturity level of your child.
