What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this action movie isn't very good, and it has intense and graphic violence for a PG-13, including people getting fried in intense heat and a lot of fighting. Other things to note: characters are in constant peril and many are killed, there are a few four-letter words, and a character speaks of being forced into prostitution. Two of the movie's few strengths are that there are diverse characters on both sides and the way it makes clear that the good guys stand for tolerance.
- Families can talk about the inspiration for some of the movie's terms like Necromancer and Crematoria and some of its themes, patched together from sources like the Bible (especially the story of Moses and the Pharaoh) and Shakespeare (especially Macbeth). They may also discover parallels between the conflicts in the movie and some historical conflicts between totalitarian regimes and those who fight for freedom.
