    Aa shockingly chintzy spin-off of Fox's post ''Pokémon'' cartoon hit.

    Voice work is weirdly awful and funny at the same time.

If you love Digimon, here's more. No surprises.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that at one point some characters believe their beloved Digimon may have been killed, but are later told that "Digimon can never really die." Our heroes are nearly blown up by an atomic missile. Some of the larger Digimon look pretty creepy, particularly the villainous Diaboromon. (One five-year-old girl confessed to being frightened by some of the more monstrous opponents). A lot of fantasy violence. Monsters fight one another in claw-to-claw combat and zap each other with power beams. In one case, a good Digimon uses a mystical sword to dispatch his foe.

  • Families can talk about the difference between cartoon violence and real-life violence, as well as the consequences of their actions.
