Family review: 'Angels and Demons'

Parents' guide to select new movies:

'Angels and Demons'

Rating: PG-13 for sequences of violence, disturbing images and thematic material.

What it's about: Symbols expert Robert Langdon helps the Vatican find four kidnapped cardinals and the bomb that might blow up Vatican City in this thriller from the Da Vinci Code folks.

The Kid Attractor Factor: It's like National Treasure — with Catholic clues instead of U.S. history clues.

Good lessons/bad lessons: Science and religion should get along better.

Violence: Eyeballs are ripped out, throats are slit, people are burned, drowned, etc.

Language: Pretty clean.

Sex: Not even a hint.

Drugs: Injections.

Parents' advisory: As violent but more action-packed than The Da Vinci Code, so kids older than 12 might be able to sit through it.
