'The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader'
Rating: PG for some frightening images and sequences of fantasy action.
What it's about: The younger Pevensie kids are summoned for one more adventure, this one involving a sea voyage and a quest for enchanted swords.
kid attractor factor: Kids getting to act like grownups, fighting battles and such, in the magical alternate reality of Narnia.
Good lessons/bad lessons: "We have nothing, if not belief." "There is no honor in turning away from an adventurous thing."
Violence: Sword fighting, brawling with slave traders and dragons and such.
Language: Disney clean.
Sex: The teens are starting to sense their hormones.
Parents' advisory: As family-friendly as ever, more accessible than the earlier "Chronicles," yet also with more direct allegories to Christianity.
'The Warrior's Way'
Rating: R for strong bloody violence.
What it's about: An assassin from the Far East hides out with a baby he is protecting in the Old West. But trouble finds him.
Kid attractor factor: Swords and martial arts fights and shooting, and stuff blowing up, and Kate Bosworth.
Violence: Sword slashings, shootings and an attempted rape.
Language: Not an issue here.
Sex: Attempted rape.
Drugs: Geoffrey Rush plays the town drunk.
Parents' advisory: As movies about guys who can lop off the heads other guys go -- with a rapist villain to boot -- this is fairly tame stuff. OK for 13 and up.
