There are lots of murders, a child is threatened with a gun, people get blown up, beaten up, burned with acid, killed with a pencil, attacked by dogs and dangled out of windows, kidnapped etc. If I had a twelve year old I wouldn't let her see it and yet there were lots of kids at the showing I went to yesterday.

Our local movie critic said he felt it should have had an R rating - if that helps any. I've not seen it yet, but he is usually fairly accurate on his comments...

so sad

I posted this before but it really makes me sad that they still market the movie to kids even though it is definitely an adult movie. My son wants to see it so bad and I'm sure many of his friends will see it, but he is out of luck sadly.

I saw it yesterday afternoon, and in our theater was an infant (WHY do people bring babies to movies?? They cry!), and I'd say probably 10 kids under the age of 10. I couldn't believe it. I couldn't believe it was rated PG-13. I don't remember any swearing, and there's really no gore, but still! The thriller aspects of it were enough for me. Certain parts still haunt me!

I saw the movie last night and couldn't sleep at all last night! I kept seeing the Joker when I closed my eyes. I really regret seeing it and am amazed that kids aren't more bothered by it! It bothered me that it was only PG-13, yet so gruesome and downright creepy!

We took both of my sons, twelve and eight. I really had no problem with it, and they didn't either!!

You didn't really see the pencil go in the guys eye, or the dogs attack batman for that matter, just the scar afterward.

I don't know, I think they've seen worse on regular television!!

I don't regret letting my boys see it.

you chose not to let her see it. My husband and I went to see it Friday. We actually said that this would definately not be a movie you would want your children to see. DH is all about action movies, but he didn't like this one much at all. It is very violent and I had to find something in my purse to put in my ears because it was SO LOUD! Maybe it was the theatre I was in, or the fact that my ears are just getting more sensitive, but I either had to hold them or put something in them.

Like PP there were alot of children in the show we were in. I would have left if we had younger kids with us.

I know you've already made up your mind, but my advice would be for any parent to see it themselves first before letting their child see it. I was a very sensitive, easily-frightened 12-year-old. I would not have been able to handle it. Others probably could have. They pushed the PG-13 rating right to the limit with the intensity and the violence. There is almost no swearing and no sexual innuendo at all.

Thanks for all of the comments. She really didn't want to see it that badly until my DS (19 yr old) tried to get her to go because he couldn't find anyone free on Sunday afternoon. I talked DH into going with him. It was good for them to have some time together anyway, so it all worked out.

I thought it should have been R. It's very demented....on the Joker's part. However, I watched the first Batman with Michael Keaton at that age.

I saw it this weekend, and definitely thought it was an adult movie. I guess I wasn't paying attention. I didn't know that it wasn't rated R until someone posted it on here. I would be very hesitant to let children see it. It is very dark, darker than all of the other Batman movies.

I just asked our 21 and 18 y/o DSs and they both agreed that it would be too violent and even, their word, sadistic for a child.
