The content details listed are accurate so the fight scenes could be a bit scary for really young ones.  The comment and play-on-words about breast armor probably won’t be understood and seemed harmless.  Not mentioned was the sympathy and compassion the boy felt after finding an injured dragon.  Despite the prejudices and stereotypes he grew up with, the boy learned more about dragons and came to understand and appreciate them more.  My girls and I (ages 7, 9, 14, and 40ish) really liked this movie.  It was fun, fast-paced, funny, and… entertaining.  I also liked the tough, determined girl characters!  Worth watching.

Could someone please tell me what is meant by mild language? Does that mean curse words or words like stupid and idiot?
