Thank you for your review of this movie. I have decided to take my daughter to see this now!  We love watching the cartoon series and this will be her first live action movie to see that actually contains some violence. 

Aang, the Avatar is a wonderful character.  He is a true friend, quick to apologize if he does things against his conscience. He really is a great character that children can look up to, and I love that about Aang.  He also cares a great deal for humanity (both enemies and innocents), animals, and the environment.  This movie is based off of Eastern religion, and it plays a VERY HEAVY roll in the movie.  If you do not want your children exposed to that, I would avoid this movie.

After reading your site’s review, I decided to take my 2 children (ages 8 & 10) to see the movie.  I was very pleasantly surprised: absolutely no swearing, not even “hell” or “damn”, which are so prevalent nowadays kids think they’re all right to say; no blood, gore or ridiculously over-the-top violence; a lot of courage, loyalty, perseverance and friendhip in the face of fear and evil - overall, excellent.  There is, as the other mom stated, a lot of Eastern philosophy and religious elements, but it never hurts to hear other ideas and learn new things.  My son liked it so much he chose to see it again in 3-D.  Great kid-friendly movie!
