THE UNBEATABLES is an animated feature about a young boy who sees the tin players on his table football game come to life when their local town is threatened by a villainous football superstar.

Violence

Violence is slapstick and comic - for example there is occasional sight of players being hit in the groin by footballs. In one scene a young boy is whacked in the face by a little girl during an argument.

Threat

In one extended sequence characters try to escape from an industrial grinder, and in another scene a character is scared when he realises that what he thought was a flirtatious arm around him is actually a rat's tail. The rat screams at him and then pulls him and his fellow football player though a rubbish tip, with items of junk crashing around them and threatening to crush them.

Language

In one scene a bullying young boy refers to a statue in a park as an "old git", while other language includes a use of 'god'.

There is some very mild innuendo. After one football match a female player begins to take off her shirt to swap it with another player, but she is stopped by the other players.

Cuts information

Company chose to remove wordplay on strong language ('Norfolk & Chance Insurance', pronounced as 'No f**cking chance Insurance'') in order to obtain a U classification. A 12A classification without cuts was available.
