Truly amazing movie, but not appropriate for children.

This is one of the best movies I have ever seen, delightfully smart and funny, with a perfect amount of energizing and cleverly choreographed Kung Fu moments. However, when considering whether or not it is an appropriate movie for kids, I think some of the other reviews I’ve read are misleading. I watched it with my 14-year-old, and I don’t regret doing so, however, you really do have to be prepared to have conversations about sex toys and sexual preferences, and how they fit in this movie as a comedic element. They are featured quite heavily in a couple of the fight sequences , regardless of the complete lack of actual sex scenes.

Bloody sex toys as weapons?

Think foot long bloody sex toys being used to kill a security guard and violent (meant to be comical) anal penetration during a fight scene. This movie is meant to take a comedic approach but it was unexpectedly graphic at times. Some BDSM (ball gag etc) references as well. The acting was great, the multiverse theme was very creative but overall it was excessive and gratuitous. The feel good family reconciliation in the end and ‘nothing matters except your own happiness’ finale fell flat. Every review I read was glowing, and I love Michelle Yeoh but I genuinely contemplated leaving before the end of the movie. Important to note there are mature sexual themes relating to violence, not my cup of tea.
