We went to see this because it was paired up with Cars2 at the drive in with our 8 year old, intending that he would be asleep by the time Green Lantern started. That didn’t happen. Instead I spent the whole time in the back of the truck keeping my son from looking at the movie while husband watched. It is pretty scary for a child under 10 or 12. There was this large black alien mass with a glowing face that tries to eat people and engulf a city. There are also these characters with bloated disfigured heads that are some what disturbing to see.
Definitely don’t bring a child under 12. The computer animated creatures are frightening. I didn’t like looking at them and I’m not a kid! says: Jul. 20, 2011

I would not even bring a child over 13 to this dirty language film. Using the word G—-D—- within 30 min of starting the movie was enough for me! I had to walk out of the movie. This was only the beginning of the foul language!

Not PG13 R rating
