What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is an extremely graphic and unblinking look at war, starting with Marine Corps basic training. This movie is not appropriate for kids. There is a lot of very strong language and very explicit violence, much of it shot in slow motion.
- Families can talk about why the Marines are trained so harshly, and how it affects people to go through such grueling treatment. The realities of war, and the parallels to current events are also possible topics for discussion.
