Paws of Fury: The Legend Of Hank Parents Guide

Paws of Fury: The Legend Of Hank Parents Guide

I was able to attend a screening in order to write this Paws of Fury: The Legend Of Hank parents guide. All opinions are my own.

Last weekend I was able to go with a couple of my kids and my hubby to screen the new movie Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank.

Here is my 10-year-old daughter MaKenzie’s review:

It was good! A good movie about sharing and being a team. Emiko is my favorite character. She is funny and determined and also brave. I also thought that Jimbo and Hank were a good team and learned a lot from each other. I really liked the end. I also was glad they learned to accept each other and be kind. It was nice to see the Shogun as a nice person instead of a bully like Ika Chu.

A couple of things she didn’t like so much were the negative talk (like stupid, imbecile, etc) and she doesn’t want kids to think it’s okay to say. And how they acted like there was some “nudity” even though it was animals.

Here is my perspective:

The animation was great. The storyline was fun. Reminded me a little of Kung Fu Panda with the outsider wanting to learn the ways of the master. It had a great theme about not giving up and following your dreams. It also was good to see Hank’s determination in standing up for himself. There were a lot of funny moments in the movie.

I didn’t appreciate how mean Ika Chu was. I understand they were trying to make him look like a big bully, but the constant negative exchanges calling everyone around him stupid, dumb, imbecile, etc was a little much. I can see little kids watching it and thinking it’s funny and trying to repeat it.

Overall the movie was good. I liked the overall theme of hard work and persistence and learning to work together and trust others.

Paws of Fury: The Legend Of Hank Parents Guide

Paws of Fury: The Legend Of Hank is rated PG for action, violence, rude and suggestive humor, and some language. It runs for 1h 37m.

There is one end-credit scene for Paws of Fury: The Legend Of Hank at the very end.

Sex & Nudity –  It shows a sumo cat in a sumo mawashi (and had a couple of scenes where they emphasize the cheeks, like when the dog gets stuck between them). A character’s kimono comes off and he says “my eyes are up here” as he is covering himself. There were also a few crude innuendos/ references.

Violence & Gore –  Animated fighting like hand-to-hand combat, arrows, bombs, swords, etc. It does show a couple of scenes like an older “lady” being punched in the head over and over, an arrow through the paw of one of the characters, etc.

Profanity – Two phrases that subbed for the F* word. One was like ‘mother father cocker spaniel’ and the other ‘what the flush’ (or something similar to that). Also, it shows a smoke signal and it has the words ‘Holy $*#@…’. One of the characters says a lot of negative words like dumb, stupid, imbecile, etc and it can be made to look funny. I didn’t really care for that.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking – One of the characters drinks a lot of catnip (and it is used as a reference for alcohol). Drinking in the bar.

Frightening & Intense Scenes – Some of the characters fall in the river and it can be intense for younger viewers.

One thing that I didn’t really care for but others thought that it was funny was the movie characters referencing the movie itself. Like one saying something like “we only have 97 minutes of the movie” or something and another saying where did that come from and a different character replying with “the title department”. I don’t know. It was weird for me.

Overall the movie is great for ALL ages. I think everyone will like it. There is a lot of humor and it is entertaining.
