I have a 7 year old nephew who is visiting this weekend and I want to treat him to a trip to the cinema. I have heard this one is a bit darker than previous ones (which i haven't seen any of) I don't know whether he has seen any of the other movies yet but i know he's a big fan of pokemon and it's much the same right but this time it's wizards and witches rather than animals.
Any advice would be appreciated and thanks in advance :)
Just in case you are: er, no, the later HP's are not suitable for a 7-year old (unless he is already demonstrating sociopathic characteristics). Lots of people being killed, violent battles, torture.... Pretty sure that it has an age-restriction, too. And it would make absolutely no sense to someone who doesn't have at least a vague idea of any of the HP story.
On the other hand, I've never seen Pokemon, so maybe they're much on a par.
"Pretty sure that it has an age-restriction, too."
Yeah 12A so it's suitable for kids as long as there's a adult present.
"Lots of people being killed, violent battles, torture.... "
Cmon, it's Harry Potter. I'm sure that's in there but I bet it's airy fairy wuss killing, battles and torture. I'm sorry but all the "heroes" are pansies and if they did put proper scary things in there it would just destroy and semblance of crebability (contradiction much, Harry Potter being credible lolz) that these movies ever had.
Trolls in the dungeon!!! The scene where Ron gets splinched is horrific! The bit where Hermione is tortured is fairly nasty. 12A means no kids under 12.. and they must be supervised... the clue is in the title.
Don't take a seven year old to see this film, especially if he hasn't read the books. It is not for small children, it's a really good film but as other people have said there is too much violence for a young child. If you want to see Harry Potter The first two films are the best ones for his age group. You can probably rent them on dvd.
He has seen the others apparently and quite wants to see this. I've heard it's darker than the others though. Still think it's a good idea despite him seeing the others and that he really wants to see it?
Took my 8 year old and 10 year old. I was a bit worried cos of the reviews saying it was unpleasant but they'd seen all the others so I took them. It was fine. Reviews done by people in their 50's I'd say cos when they were 8, they would have been scared. Kids these days - not so much!
Yes, but he will not undetsand it. . . AT ALL. its got a confussing story line to follow unless youve read the book. but if he wants to see it, then go for it :D it has a tiny bit of language, moderate horror scenes and 'sexual' scene between harry and hermione :') *compleatly WRONG btw * :') :L xxx
