Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Justin and the Knights of Valor is a full-length animated film with some original songs. It takes place in medieval times with knights, ladies, wizards, and great villains, but in terms of jokes, characters, and some story elements, there is a modern sensibility (such as the inclusion of a stereotypically effeminate villain with a love of fashion; the young hero is torn between becoming a knight to save his kingdom or "going to law school"). There's lots of comedy and plenty of cartoon action, including swordplay, stabbings, and a threatening fire; a villain falls to his death. A Spanish production with prominent English-speaking actors, this theatrical film was released internationally in 2013 but is making its American debut as direct-to-DVD.

Sexual Content


Frequent cartoon action and violence: swordplay, crossbows, attacks by strongmen. A silly crocodile-like dragon wreaks comic havoc. Characters are pummeled, stabbed, thrown, chased, and captured, and they fall -- a villain plummets to his death.


Insults are uttered in disgust: "pinhead," "idiots," "dunderheads." Some characters are the objects of laughter and derision.

Social Behavior

Teamwork is a plus in overcoming adversity. Ordinary people can sometimes surprise with their heroism. A questionable but clearly stated message is: "If you go against your dad, you have to believe in yourself."


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Several scenes take place in a pub, with beer served in flagons. A leading character is a barmaid.
