What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this film is extremely violent. Men are killed by gunfire, sword wounds, fatal acid, insect bites, and numerous magical plagues. There is virtually no blood or gore and much of the violence is directed toward the "undead," whose bones shatter when struck with swords or fists. In a series of scenes, many characters (including the lead) drink shots of bourbon whiskey. A man stumbles drunk throughout the film and another vocally lusts after the whiskey. Parents should know this film fully deserves a PG-13 rating. It's inappropriate for young children.
- Families can talk about the way women and indigenous people are portrayed in this film. How does Evie's strength as a scholarly, cultured, bi-racial librarian compare to other lead female roles in cinema today? How are people of different races depicted? Are they respectful of their cultures?
