Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Billy Owens and the Secret of the Runes is a sequel to The Mystical Adventures of Billy Owens. There is nothing that will offend kids in this Harry Potter wannabe, except for the fact that it is so terribly boring and badly made. Expect to hear the words "puke," "idiot," and "dweeb." There is some mild peril but nothing truly scary to most tweens.

Sexual Content

Violence

A man seems to be trapped inside an amulet. The disembodied head of a bully with magic powers flies around yelling at children. Devon has a sword fight to keep Kurt out of the lighthouse. Kids slide down a magic rope from the top of a light house. The kids fall through a secret door into a grotto, but no one is harmed. The children act frightened at the discovery of a dragon swimming nearby, even though it's clear that the "dragon" is nothing more than a drawing of a dragon wriggling below them. Another moment is apparently meant to be suspenseful and/or scary: Someone yells, "Run," but as there is no apparent threat, there is also no suspense or scariness. At another point, scary music plays while the kids stand around calmly.

Language

"Puke," "shut up," "idiot," "half-wit," "dweeb."

Social Behavior

"The nobility of your selflessness is directly proportional to the strength of your power." "The end of ignorance and greed give us the opportunity to right ancient wrongs." "Greed is a merciless taskmaster."
