Fearless | 2020 | TV-Y7 | – 1.3.2

content-ratingsWhy is “Fearless” rated TV-Y7? The TV Parental Guidelines Monitoring Board rating indicates that “this program is designed for children age 7 and above.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes flirting and a scene of teen hand-holding, several scenes of video game violence and many scenes of attacks on babies that get away unharmed, and some mild language and name-calling. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.


Animated feature about a teen video gamer (voiced by Miles Robbins) that reaches the top levels of a game and accidentally enters a wormhole that brings three computer generated super-babies to his house, pursued by the game’s arch villain (voiced by Miguel), who wants to absorb their powers. The gamer must face helping the game’s hero (voiced by Jadakiss) to rescue the babies, as well as complete a major school project with his impatient study partner (voiced by Yara Shahidi). Also with the voices of Gabrielle Union, Angie Martinez, Amari McCoy, Dwyane Wade, Susan Sarandon and Fat Joe. Directed by Cory Edwards. [Running Time: 1:29]

Fearless VIOLENCE/GORE 3

 – Human and alien video game characters fight with fists and feet, fire, lasers, tanks, automatic rifles, a “freeze” gun, and swords and spears made of cosmic rays in several scenes; characters fall, are tossed around and slammed into walls, squeezed, caged, trapped in a maze, and shot out of a spaceship in flight, but we see no bloodshed.
 A large monster on four legs and with six eyes roars at a superhero, and we see its sharp teeth in close-up; the hero throws a light-spear into its mouth and the monster snaps it in half, the hero throws more spears and electricity bolts at it, sticks spears in its back and shoulder, and says it has bad breath before punching it and knocking it down; three babies in carriers are shown on the hero’s back and chest and two of them throw a small spear and a ball of green light, the babies scream as the monster slaps the people with its tail, knocking them away unharmed and the hero shoots fire from his hands, the monster trips into a gully, climbs out and a wide geyser shoots it into the sky where it disappears.
 Three babies are kidnapped and taken by a villain to a large spacecraft where they push a small alien out the ship’s airlock and take off in a shuttle craft (the alien makes it back into the ship); the babies fly through a wormhole and crash in front of an Earth home, unharmed. A teen boy sits on a baby that throws him to the floor (unharmed), other babies slap each other and shout “Ow!” as they emit green lights and purple bubbles that trash a house, breaking bookcases, tables, lamps and chairs with loud crashing, a large picture window shatters out into the yard with tinkling sounds and a spaceship appears and sends many robots with single glowing eyes to shoot lasers that demolish much of the house; a superhero fights back with cosmic spears and axes to no avail and is whisked away to a maze, and a villain kidnaps the babies back to the ship. A hero is trapped in a cage where a big light points at him until he escapes. Huge spiked balls roll fast after a hero until he escapes and fights off a swarm of small monsters with kicks, punches, and flips, and finally leaves them all unconscious. A teen girl and a teen boy ride a motorcycle into oncoming traffic, swerve to miss half a dozen cars, jump off a cliff, and land on the landing gear of a low flying spacecraft; they are pulled inside the vessel where three babies are under electrified cones and a villain is in a pod where we see mists rising and the man says the babies’ powers are being transferred to him through a stick-on sensor.
 U.S. Army planes fire a shot at a spaceship and then fly away as an alien in the ship pounds computer keys and mumbles and a teen boy points a ray gun at him and fires electricity bolts into the computer console; the boy and a teen girl take three babies into an escape shuttle to leave the ship, skid on a street, and parallel park it as many soldiers point rifles at them and a huge swarm of glowing one-eyed robots descend. A villain is shown several times his original size and he fires laser cannons from his arms (nothing is struck) as his minion fires two ray guns and jabbers. A teen boy drives an ice cream truck over a pile of rubble and a villain approaches it, picks up the teen boy and squeezes him until a baby fires rays from her eyes and two giant babies fire bubbles and loudly burp bright lights, and soldiers fire rifles and hit nothing; the teen boy and the teen girl get into the ice cream truck and the babies fire their weapons at the villain and a bear made of light roars and sits on the villain, and a superhero and the teen girl kick an alien in the face and slam him to the ground and then shrink the villain to smaller than his original size.
 A teen boy and a teen girl in a car with three babies are stopped at a roadblock where two soldiers wear gas masks (they sound like Darth Vader); one baby drives a Jeep backward, then forward to chase a soldier who runs and shouts in fear until the baby encases the soldier in a bubble to save him from running into a car, and then picks up the Jeep and throws it down the road, loudly crashing it to bits as the baby floats away in a bubble, lands in a street, and cars swerve and a truck jackknifes and ends up hanging over a bridge; a teen boy saves the driver before the truck goes over with a crash and huge flames shoot up briefly. Soldiers surround three babies, a teen girl and a teen boy with assault rifles that we hear clicking into a loaded position; a villain appears and shoots a freeze gun at several soldiers, freezing them into statues, while a man places the babies in a glass box and wheels them away.
 A villain character is tall, has greenish complexion with a short tusk at each cheekbone, he is mean to his gibberish-mumbling minion that is a four-armed, two-legged being with two tall eye stalks and the villain slaps it, calls it names, stuns it with a stun gun, and tosses it into a wall (it is not shown to be injured). Three babies strike an alien being and pull its eyestalks (it does not appear injured). The villain takes a teddy bear from a baby and twists the toy’s head off with a loud crunch as the baby looks alarmed.
 A soldier chased by an alien in two scenes shouts, “I don’t want to die like this.” Two men argue loudly in a few scenes. A teen boy and a teen girl argue in several scenes. During an evening, a large monster appears in a backyard and roars, and a teen boy and a teen girl run toward it as the scene ends. An alien villain says he will end the lives of three babies to end the lineage of their hero father.
 A baby boy burps in several scenes, one time very loudly and with green light for many seconds as a weapon, and in another scene, burps purple cosmic bubbles; he also blows a raspberry sound with his tongue. A teen boy says that a baby smells bad, like his diaper needs changing and a man says he smells a ripe diaper. A baby’s hands and feet are seen above the frame as a tall stream of urine shoots up, suggesting that a grimacing teen boy is changing the baby’s diaper (the teen is not struck by urine). A teen boy gags as a bug flies into his mouth. An alien licks rocks and later tastes a baby’s foot and gags. Three babies suck on palladium pacifiers that block superpowers. A villain sits in a chair and tells a short alien it left the seat sweaty and moist. A character makes reference to “puke.” A shooting star hits the ground, raising a brief column of fire and dust.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
