What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Non-Stop is an action-packed thriller with plenty of edge-of-the-seat moments that may thrill teens. It could also scare off both young and old viewers from flying, especially if they're already skittish about it since the movie's so tense and realistic. The body count's pretty high, too, served up with a big dose of brutality and some gore, which may prove too intense for younger teens. Expect some swearing, including "s--t" and "d--k," and some drinking, too; one character is an alcoholic.
- Families can talk about the movie's fear factor. How does this film tap into the collective fear about acts of terrorism, especially on planes? Does it have a political agenda?
- Does the movie deal with any stereotypes and, if so, how does it handle them? Does it promote them or break them down?
