CommentsThe films contain complex, mature and educational themes treated light heartedly in a comedic context. The themes interrogate the fight against rhino poaching, rhino poaching involving trusted officials paying people to kills rhinos for monetary purposes, friendships and team-work, armed mercenaries lying about their job, being fearless and standing by your values. These themes include inspirational and prosocial messages about saving rhinos with a mild to moderate impact. The visual presentations of a rhino lying dead after implied shooting may distress, upset and/or confuse younger impressionable viewers under the age of 10 years. Children 10 to 12 will require parental guidance and support to contextualize the storyline.
