Still shot from the movie: Inkheart.


Although Meggie (Eliza Hope Bennett) and her father Mo (Brendan Fraser) love books, he never reads them aloud. That's because the voice of the man with the silver tongue can bring objects and people from the story pages to life. Unfortunately, every time something or someone enters their reality, another disappears into the world of the novel. But Mo may be forced to use his unique talent when Meggie is kidnapped by some unsavory characters that escaped from a book called Inkheart. Get the movie review and more. »

Why Is Inkheart Rated PG?

Characters in the film are frequently threatened with weapons or placed in perilous situations. A man is attacked by a small animal, kicked in the back and slashed on the arm with a knife. Others are captured and thrown in a prison cell. Thugs attack a group, destroy property and burn a pile of books. A tornado damages buildings and causes men and vehicles to be thrown in the air. Individuals are hit with a variety of objects. Two men pour gas in a building and then ignite the fluid. Characters turn to ash and their bodies crumble and blow away in the wind. Women are shown in low cut bodices. Infrequent profanities are included in the script.
