Superhero Movies for Kids

'The Dark Knight' (2008)

Ages: 14+

Starring: Christian Bale, Aaron Eckhart, Heath Ledger

What Parents Should Know: Parents need to know that although this sequel to “Batman Begins” is an excellent movie, it's also much darker and more violent than the first one. Remember: Not all Batmen are created equal. Even though this movie is about a comic-book character, neither it nor its flawed hero and villain are aimed at younger kids or appropriate for them. The film is loaded with intense action, from bombs and bullets to martial-arts fighting and hand-to-hand combat. In addition to the hard-hitting action, expect some drinking and a bit of sexuality. And The Joker's nightmarish appearance has the potential to frighten viewers of all ages. Much of the movie's buzz surrounds actor Heath Ledger's excellent work in that villainous role — his final completed part before his January 2008 death from an accidental drug overdose. —Common Sense Media (Photo: Warner Bros.)
