This movie features a fair amount of sexual violence, that is, violence targeting the sexual organs. It should not be PG. It should be PG-13 at minimum.

I believe Jackie Chan will be nominated for Best Supporting Actor - he is that good in this role. A little hard to believe Jaden Smith can really overcome his adversaries who appear to be older and physically stronger. Great editing and fight scenes look real. Be sure to stay through the credits as you see Jaden with his adversaries in outtake smiles and buddy photos - hey this is a movie - and with his parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. Really can be a satisfying film for anyone over ten years old.
