Rating: PG-13 for intense epic battle sequences and warfare, sensuality, language and some smoking. What it's about: A disabled Marine is given an alien body to go live among them to help persuade them to leave their land, and comes to take their side against the developers who want to bulldoze their forest. The Kid Attractor Factor: Aliens, dazzling critter-covered alien world and the best motion-capture animation ever. Good lessons/bad lessons: Developers and their mercenaries bad, indigenous people good. Violence: Quite a bit, as there's a war and a lot of hunting-killing that goes on before that war. Language: A heaping helping of profanity. Sex: Alien mating, discreet toplessness, loincloths. Drugs: Cigarettes. Parents' advisory: A dazzling spectacle with a plot any tween will recognize, it's too violent and too long for the very young, but a fairly mild PG-13. OK for 10 and up.
