Immigrant mice tale is scarier, darker than past films.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that An American Tail: The Treasure of Manhattan Island is another adventure of Fievel the mouse and his immigrant family. This action-adventure has a strong message about tolerance and equality for all but also has quite a few suspenseful scenes and a lot of cartoon violence, including some disturbing scenes of police beating up protesters, which may be too scary for some young viewers. There also are some pretty dated ethnic stereotypes of various immigrants and Native Americans.
