Playmobil: The Movie | 2019 | PG | – 1.3.1

content-ratingsWhy is “Playmobil: The Movie” rated PG? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “action/peril and some language.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes a couple of flirtatious remarks and some bare-chested male toys; a scene where two children are informed of their parents’ death in an accident, many adventure scenes in an animated land where characters are nearly harmed and one character is apparently killed by a beast off-screen; and some mild language, mostly consisting of name-calling and exclamations. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.”


Animated feature based on the Playmobil brand toys: After a tragedy, the younger brother of a teenage girl (Anya Taylor-Joy) disappears and so she teams up with a secret agent (voiced by Daniel Radcliffe) and a few other misfit friends and they’re off on a quest to find him. Also with Gabriel Bateman and the voices of Jim Gaffigan, Meghan Trainor, Adam Lambert, Kenan Thompson, Kirk Thornton, Dan Navarro, Maddie Taylor and Cindy Robinson. Directed by Lino DiSalvo. A line of dialog is spoken in dinosaur with English subtitles. [Running Time: 1:39]

Playmobil: The Movie VIOLENCE/GORE 3

 – Police officers arrive at the door of a teen girl and her younger brother and inform them that their parents were killed in a car accident.
 A young boy runs away from home by climbing out his bedroom window and we see him walking through dark city streets as thunder and lightning clap and flash.
 A T-Rex tramples out of a dark passage and into a coliseum where it chases a teen girl and a boy; the dinosaur nearly stomps on the two, it tries to chomp them with its giant sharp teeth, a food truck spins around the dinosaur to distract it and the girl is launched into the air and drops a bail of magic hay into the dinosaur’s mouth (it sprouts wings and flies). A toy lighthouse emits a bright light that draws many toys, a teen girl, and a boy into it; the boy and girl crash to the ground in doll form in an animated land and the girl has some dirt smudges on her face after falling repeatedly because her legs don’t bend. Many Viking ships arrive at a shore and attack a Viking horde on land; they clash swords, throw each other, explosions blow dirt and people into the air, and some are shown falling to the ground motionless; one Viking (a boy) throws several and dispatches others with ease and a teen girl knocks herself out by swinging a mace that hits her in the head.
 A boy is catapulted through the air and he crashes into a body of water; a teen girl climbs on a horse and charges to find him, but three men put the boy in a carriage before she gets to him. A pirate threatens a man and has him locked in a cage. A teen girl on horseback is thrown off the horse and she uses a fishing pole to pull herself onto a food truck (she drags on the road briefly); she struggles with the driver of the truck and eventually takes over the driver’s seat to chase a carriage just as the carriage disappears. A man and a teen girl are wrapped with glowing ropes and hang upside down over a ring that displays bubbling lava, swimming sharks and other dangerous looking places as the two are lowered toward it; they fall through the ring and land in a forest unharmed. A man jumps toward a spinning exhaust fan and is pushed into the air above it until the blades stop spinning and he falls between them unharmed. A man punches several guards and a teen girl sprays others with a blast of ice that encases them in a block of ice. Two guards drag a man out of a room and the man yells. An alien creature uses electrified tentacles to knock guards out so that she and others can escape from a cell. A teen girl kicks an emperor and uses her sword to slice down a banner to the ground below to save a boy. A teen girl kicks a guard over the wall of a castle (we hear him yell and a thud). A girl asks townspeople for help in finding her brother and offers gold as payment; the townspeople move toward her in a threatening manner and the girl swings her saddle bag and hits three out of the way, runs away and is picked up by a man driving a food truck. Six people break out of stocks and five of them jump down into a manhole while the other is surrounded by guards with cattle prods. A truck swerves off the road to avoid hitting a dinosaur and falls down a hill and slides along a snow-covered area. A character is knocked out by ramp that falls on him from a pirate ship. A character wearing armor is placed into an arena to face off against a beast that we do not see, but the character is swept away leaving only his helmet behind (it is implied that he is dead, but we do not see what happened to him). A woman discovers a teen girl pretending to be her and orders guards to take her to “the dentist chair” where she threatens to torture her. A man drinks a drugged cocktail and is placed in the back of a truck when he passes out. A large caterpillar-looking creature is seen reclined on a chaise and it uses its tail to pick a teen girl up and squeezes her while threatening her.
 Six people are shown locked in stocks in a square where other people throw things at them (we see tomato seeds and juice dribble off the faces of a couple). A pirate ship sets sail as guards chase it to a pier; the ship is pulled back to the pier by a rope that was not untied and the characters onboard are thrown onto the pier where they are taken away by the guards. A food truck is chased by a helicopter, motorcycles and cars and a man jumps out the back and into a car as the helicopter crashes and bursts into flames very near the back of the truck. Three characters slide through a long chute, into a car and speed away. A teen girl and a man driving a food truck pass “Jurassic Jungle,” where we see a volcano spewing lava and dinosaurs flying and walking around. A teen girl walks through a desert to reach an Old West town as the sheriff charges after three men on horseback yelling at them. Several characters (a pirate, an alien, a caveman, an Amazon and a Viking are locked in cages). A small robot is thrown out of a room and falls down a flight of stairs (its arm breaks off but is repaired). A man in a horse stable throws a man out and he tumbles on the ground. A teen girl pokes a boy with a stick and the boy giggles. A teen girl throws her passport and hears someone in the distance exclaim in pain (we see a woman with a bruised eye). People are clamped into shackles in a couple of scenes. A teen girl and a boy ride on the back of a flying dinosaur. A teen girl and a young boy play with toys and pretend to be at war with knights and ogres; one toy catapults another through the air to take out an ogre. A man takes a teen girl to a dance club that is a cover for a black market scheme run by a large creature. Two children play swordfight with a wooden sword and a broom.
 A teen girl finds her younger brother in a toy show after hours, she yells at him for making her worry and they are eventually asked to leave by a security guard. A young boy yells at his older sister and tells her that since their parents died, it’s like she died too. A teen girl and a young boy argue about their lives and the boy is angry that they don’t have any fun. A man asks a teen girl, “Is there anyone’s life you don’t ruin?” A woman tells a teen girl that she saw her brother but, “Sadly, the wolves got him,” (she quickly says that she is joking). A comment is made about a woman loving “spicy burritos” that make her breath smell. A caveman chews on a bone. A man says that he “spits in death’s face.”
 A couple of toys have scars across their eyes (one has his eye closed and the other has a scar through her eyebrow and down her cheek). A horse sprouts two glittery wings and flies up to the roof of a barn after eating “magic hay.” A creature blows raspberries at a teen girl after she pokes it. We see human skeletons and chains in dark cells.

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.
