From the critics
AgeAdd Age Suitability
JihadiConservative thinks this title is suitable for between the ages of 8 and 12
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Numerous potentially upsetting scenes. Horses face neglect and succumb to exhaustion. Sympathetic characters die (offscreen, but emotional). A family has fights and a young man places himself between his horse and a gun.
Other: btw the horse is fake. Someone is controlling it. Watch the special features.
Violence: War violence in the ending of the movie, pretty hard core stuff, but not crazy bloody or anything, just very realistic.

2nd""Or he might relatively think, I fancy that cap, I'm going to kill you first of all."
1st:"Hadn't really thought of that."
