From Russia With Love Review

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

Iffy for 12+

Creative Cold War Bond thriller is best for teens and up.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that while there's no full-frontal nudity, this movie contains a lot sexual innuendo. The film is largely based around Bond's fondness for women and his casual attitude towards sex, so sexual double entendres abound throughout the film. The violence factor is high with explosions, fistfights, gun battles, and a strangling. The politics are cold war and likely to be completely baffling to younger teens.

  • Families can talk about Bond's approach to women and the way the movie treats women in general. Why must 007's fondness for women be a weakness for him? Why do females seem to be cast as villains? Bond presumes that his enemies in the film are Russians. Ask your kids what they know about the Cold War. Who do they think the villains would be today?
