This review of the movie contains the following information:
Living side-by-side with monsters, amateur monster hunter, Aiden (voiced by Dante Basco), and his village battle to keep their flocks from being eaten and their homes from being destroyed. When Aiden is saved from a Velociprey monster by Julius (voiced by Brando Eaton), an Ace Monster Hunter and member of the Monster Hunter Guild, he starts a quest to save the local villagers from an Elder Monster. Elder Dragons are a rare and ancient type of monster with immense power that destroy everything in their path - and one is headed straight for Aiden’s village. With the help of Guild Monster Researcher Mae (voiced by Caroline Caliston), Ace Monster Hunter Nadia (voiced by G.K. Bowes), weapons maker Ravi (voiced by Dan McCoy), and talking cat Nox (voiced by Stephen Kramer Glickman), Aiden and Julius come up with a plan to battle the Elder Dragon and save Aiden’s home.
Children and adolescents may react adversely at different ages to themes of crime, suicide, drug and alcohol dependence, death, serious illness, family breakdown, death or separation from a parent, animal distress or cruelty to animals, children as victims, natural disasters and racism. Occasionally reviews may also signal themes that some parents may simply wish to know about.
Death; Natural disasters (flood and fire).
Research shows that children are at risk of learning that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution when violence is glamourised, performed by an attractive hero, successful, has few real life consequences, is set in a comic context and / or is mostly perpetrated by male characters with female victims, or by one race against another.
Repeated exposure to violent content can reinforce the message that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution. Repeated exposure also increases the risks that children will become desensitised to the use of violence in real life or develop an exaggerated view about the prevalence and likelihood of violence in their own world.
