    I think parents should not allow their young kids to view that kind of video not until they are at an age were the parents can explain it is all make believe and the child is mature enough to understand that . I will give Hollywood a challenge and that is to make movies that do not require all the hype to make money but a good story line with actual acting in the film. We have actors and actresses that can act today, they do not need the blood and the gore to hide their failing. In other words do something that is difficult and not animations of people getting their legs and arms blew off and thousand’s of people dying , leave something to the imagination . Death is glorified in the films today and that would be fine but we do not need to see their guts and brains spilled all over the screen to get it that they died.
