Tad: The Last Explorer is an absolutely great animated film. At first just my husband and I started watching it, but soon it found it’s way into the playroom DVD player as well. Carson watched it 5 times in a row. I did have to explain the scary things were fake, and answer a lot of what is its. It won’t be a go to movie for him until he is a little older, but I do see it as an active part of the rotation for my older kids and for Carson and Courtney when they hit elementary age.
The story is your typical Indiana Jones type story. But what I enjoyed the most about this film, the lesson of facing your fears and being courageous. When Tad faces his fears of the Mummies, they end becoming friends. There is some adult humor as well, which makes it fun to watch as a parent. Following Tad and his hyper dog to Peru was quite enjoyable, and the soundtrack will have you singing along, as the featured song is the One Direction song What Makes you Beautiful.
I do want to mention, that I am considering adding this movie to the Christmas Gifts for my Nephews.
