Easter's best films for kids

Kid-friendly flicks for the Easter holidays guaranteed to take their minds off of chocolate (for a bit)

1/5

Rio 2

A wise-cracking animated character is put in mild peril and learns a few life lessons along the way. In the sequel to ‘Rio’, the feathery hero Blu and his brood have to leave the city and take on the Amazon. Much ‘town mouse/country mouse’ type comedy ensues, directed again by Carlos ‘Ice Age’ Saldanha.

2/5

Noah

Believe your eyes, Russell Crowe plays Noah in a spectacular interpretation of the Bible’s flood story. The latest CGI technology creates a stunning ark with more decks than a Mediterranean cruise liner, and the drama veers off the Genesis account to tell a human story.

3/5

Divergent

Based on Veronica Roth’s bestselling young adult novel, this science-fiction action film is set around a post-apocalyptic Chicago. Tris is a young woman with a ‘divergent’ personality, making her valuable in a new plot to shape the perfect society. Love, identity and the spirit of independence make heady teen themes.

4/5

Khumba

Set in the South African Karoo, a young zebra must go on a mission to discover why he’s only got half his stripes. A hero in black and white who has to become an outsider to get justice? Classic film noir! Of course not. It’s an animation with a stellar cast of voices (Jake T Austin! Liam Neeson! Laurence Fishburne! Steve Buscemi! Catherine Tate!) working off a funny, tight script.

5/5

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

When Peter Parker takes on a mysterious and powerful company, a whole lotta supervillainry heads his way. Can his heroic alter-ego win the day? We suspect ‘yes’, but with plenty of ‘whoah’ before hometime. Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone reunite in the central cast, with Marc Webb returning as director.
