Digimon: The Movie



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

Sex & Nudity
Violence & Gore
1 to 10

MPAA Rating: PG

"Digimon: The Movie" is based on the Anime TV show "Digimon: Digital Monsters," about an alternate world where everything is Digi-something. Children are transported there and unite with the Digimon to fight evil, in this case a Digivirus that has infected the Internet. With the voices of Joshua Seth, Lara Jill Miller, Michael Reisz, Colleen O'Shaughnessy and Mona Marshall. [1:29]

SEX/NUDITY 0 - None.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Some large Digimon look like dinosaurs and they have scary voices. There are several fights and battles among Digimon. Large Digimon monsters fight each other, pushing, shoving and punching, and often with fireballs and electrical charges. They inflict a lot of property damage: buildings and other structures blow up and city blocks are destroyed. A large Digimon destroys several beds, crashes an unoccupied car, opens up a soft drink machine and then fires fireballs that destroy a phone booth -- he also fires at aircraft flying overhead but misses. We see Digimon being hit, but the results are not gory or fatal. In one scene a horde of evil Digimon fires at the good Digimon and vice versa. Many Digimon are destroyed and one is killed by being split apart (the scene is not graphic). In another scene a Digimon is hit by an arrow and various missiles and it explodes (again, the scene is not particularly graphic). A Digimon has machine gun-like arms and shoots at another Digimon whose wounds heal by themselves. We see excrement on a floor and we hear a flatulent sound emanating from a Digimon. A nuclear missile is launched and we follow it through the air but it does not explode.

PROFANITY 1 - A few insults and grunts. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Digital creatures, Anime, spontaneous healing, alternate realities.

MESSAGE - Good can often be as violent as evil.

Special Keywords: S0 - V4 - P1 - MPAAPG

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
