My wife bought this movie after seeing an ad on tv and thinking my 2 yr old son would like the cute little blue elephant. And he does. The animation is good and there are plenty of different characters although the story follows just one of them for 95% of the movie. I sat down and watched this all the way through only once with my son, as he's at the age where he can only handle 20 minutes of story line at a time (not helped by the fact all his tv shows are about 10 to 20 minutes an episode).

But once we got into the third act, things I thought got a little disturbing. There are a lot of war scenes towards the end, and throughout the whole story there are a lot of fights, teasing, slightly creepy images of red eyed monstrous elephants (the animation makes them look more like demons than elephants), and I basically felt uncomfortable with my two year old staring at it. I also didn't like the message about war being a necessary thing in society (actually I was quite shocked when they said that in a kid's movie supposedly about a cute blue elephant).

The bottom line is there's nothing about the cover of the DVD and the ads that depict what the movie is actually like. I'm not saying it isn't an enjoyable movie, but it might not be what you're expecting, especially after the first 5 minutes are all cute and cuddly and then it turns into a slightly scary film about war and death. I would watch it first as a parent before letting your child view it to gauge if it's something you feel comfortable letting your child watch.

When I bought this movie for my then 8 years old daughter I was attracted mostly by the cute elephants on the box cover and in the beginning the movie was indeed about cute little elephants. But then it turned much darker than any other kid movie I ever seen.

The action of film takes place in Siam (today this country is called Thailand) in XVIII century, when this kingdom was invaded by its Burmese neighbours. More of half of the movie is about the war training of elephants and our blue hero, when fully grown up, goes to fight a bloody war carrying on his back the king of Siam. The Burmese are presented as wild, red eyed barbarians and they certainly act in very barbaric ways. The battles are brutal and even my 8 years old daughter felt a little bit uncomfortable - and I am certain that this movie is NOT appropriate to the youngest children, not until they are seven at least.

Other than that, it is not a bad film and certainly very different from most kid movies I ever saw - just be warned that cute and cuddly part ends fast and then the story heads to army training camps and the war...

My child thoroughly enjoyed this wonderfully animated film. She's watched it several times this weekend, and wants a copy of her own. (we rented this one) Although I agree, that for smaller children, it might be scary. The cover art DOES NOT give you a good idea of what the film is all about, however, I do think that in the situation presented in the movie (Siam being invaded by Burma), that the war is justified, even though it obviously wasn't what the animals or the people wanted. They wanted peace, but knew they could never have it without fighting for it. Appropriate film for 4 and up, in my opinion.

We first encountered this one on Netflix until they took it off. For the longest this was the only thing that would help us calm her when she was upset. Very cute movie with a good story for kids. My daughter is glued to the screen when this is on.

I had found this movie on Netflix. Then they took it out of rotation. So I had to buy it. It is a great movie that teaches that it is not about how big you are outside, but how strong you are inside. Unfortunately it is also about war, so take that into consideration. it is for children, so no bloodshed, but there will be moments of sadness. Great little movie overall.

My two-year old son LOVES this movie. He received it for Christmas in his stocking it had been a previous favorite that was removed from Netflix, and didn't want to open any Christmas presents until this was playing. There are some references I'm not thrilled about (i.e. the opening scene features two birds talking about an over-sized young elephant moving quickly and say "look at that blubber shake"), but overall it's a wholesome movie and my son loves the elephants.

We love this movie. My 3 year old son absolutely adores the characters and remembers the names totally. The animations are well done. The storyline is sensitive and touches our hearts. The whole movie leaves you with a sweet and proud feeling. My son enjoys this movie thoroughly and we enjoy watching him do so :-)

My son viewed this movie at a sleepover and begged for it. I ordered it on Amazon came way quicker than I expected and my kids, ourselves, and our other family members have all watched it more than once in less than a week and can not stop talking about it! Great family movie it does have violence and death in it, but other than that it is great!
