i rate this title IFFY for ages 14+
What to watch out for * Messages: Jamie, who has spent his life hiding away due to his large birthmark, eventually conquers his fear -- leaning that beauty is only skin deep and that people can love him despite his appearance. But he goes to drastic means to learn this lesson and makes several seriously problematic choices in the process. Still, you could argue that Jamie's tale is a cautionary one and that viewers can learn from his mistakes. * Role models: Jamie takes the wrong path, including murder, to reach the conclusion that his unusual appearance doesn't really matter to people that love him. By the time he truly realizes that, he's already "made a deal with the devil," and it's too late for him. * Violence: Gangs prowl the London streets; they use Molotov cocktails to start fires, and characters are burned (one character magically tears off his blackened skin to reveal new skin underneath). One murder victim's chest is sliced open with a knife, and his heart is removed. Viewers also see guns, terrifying monsters with razor-sharp teeth, and severed heads that come to life. Characters fight, and there's lots of blood. * Sex: The hero and his girlfriend have sex in bed (no graphic nudity). The hero brings home a male hustler, and there's some sexual innuendo. The hustler strips naked and is covered with plastic wrap, but again, no graphic nudity is shown. * Language: Characters use "f--k" and "f--king" every chance they get (which is very often!). Other words include "h--l" and "bi-ch." * Consumerism: Not an issue. * Drinking, drugs, & smoking: Characters go out for cocktails on more than one occasion. The hero has a difficult time drinking hard liquor.
