Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this animated series inspired by Hot Wheels toys has plenty of high-speed automotive action and cartoon violence. The Battle Force 5 team's ultra-high-tech cars have computerized weapons systems -- which come in handy when they visit other dimensions to do battle with aliens. Expect plenty of racing scenes and car-to-car combat, as well as standard fistfights and other forms of cartoon clashes -- but no blood or injuries. There's some mild trash-talking, but no swearing. And because the series stems from a line of toys, expect young fans to clamor for merchandise tie-ins.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.

Violence

Lots of fighting, including martial arts brawls, sword fights, and blaster fire. But most of the action involves high-speed car chases involving ultra-high-tech vehicles that have their own weapons systems. Expect plenty of car crashes -- but like most cartoons, injuries are extremely rare.

Language

Some trash talking, but nothing more serious than "Hey, Roachboy!"

Social Behavior

Teamwork is critical -- the members of the Battle Force 5 squad must work together to save the world from alien invaders. They each have specialized abilities and can't succeed unless they function effectively as a team. That said, violence ends up being the main form of conflict resolution.

Consumerism

The entire series is based on the classic line of Hot Wheels toy cars -- and you can expect plenty of new, show-inspired merchandise, too.
