This review is from: Peter And The Wolf [DVD] (DVD)
I was about to show this to a group of 6-7 year olds but quickly changed my mind on reviewing.
Just too scary combined with gratuitous violence (check out the MUGGING at the beginning - the inclusion of this was beyond me - even for adults).
I used the Kirstie Alley/Lloyd Bridges version instead.
Maybe someone could explain to me the 'why' for the mugging at the beginning?

The muggers come in at the end - they are the hunters that end up being hunted, hence their inclusion.

Sorry - but what was the scene right at the beginning where he gets beaten up in an alley? I cannot check myself what you refer to as the end because I turned it off after the initial violence - and I have turned the DVD over to the school and they are viewing it as a 'warning' to what kind of terrible stuff is published for children.
I cannot believe the reason for including this kind of gratuitous violence in stories meant for small kids.
