Violent and Gory, People are Hurt and Killed and the Blood Flows Freely.

Assasinations, murder, torture, blood, gore, constant vulgar language. The only redeeming thing for teens in this movie is that there is no sex.

16 and up.

Olympus Has Fallen is one of the best action/adventure movies i ever seen stars with Gerard Butler, Morgan freeman and Angela bassett but this movie is filled with lots of violence and with that being said this movie is for your older teens and parents you need to know that Olympus Has Fallen has a lot of intense violence and the body count is extremely high filled with tortured, blown up, shot, and people killed in hand-to-hand combat also you'll see severed limbs, cracked bones, televised assassinations, and blood splattering everywhere the language is strong but not constant.

A Black Comedy For Adults

This movie is so bad, it's actually quite good. If your idea of a good time is to laugh at Patrick Swayze shouting "Wolverines!", and you think "Mars Attacks" is amusing, then Tivo this movie once it's out on cable, crack open an ironic beer and settle in for an overproduced jingoistic gore fest. Take care to put all of the forks under lock and key for you will certainly want one to jab yourself repeatedly in the face if one is available.

Under no circumstances should any minor be allowed to watch this movie. Its utter puerility aside, the body count --each and every one in graphic detail-- goes well into triple digits.

What other families should know
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

A great movie!

Now I come from a family who i very lax on what their kids are watching, I watched it and loved. My parents let my 10 year old brother watch it and he liked it. So overall the action was good and Its not that bad in the violence department.

INTENSELY VIOLENT THROUGHOUT ENTIRE MOVIE

I read the review on this site but what I would add as a parent is the intensity of the movie and how it can be overwhelming to a child. The extreme violence was non-stop throughout the movie and disturbing to me, even as an adult.
