It's Awsome.

Parents don't let younger teens or kids watch it. Only older teens or adults watch it. It will scare the little kids. And so much death in it.

great, expertly created movie explores life and death through graphic ways

this sweeping drama from Clint Eastwood is very intersesting and will raise many questions about life and death. but to get to those, you must endure a 2 hour sequence of horrific death scenes and grieving. the opening scene has the 2004 tsunami ripping through towns, destroying everything from builidings, cars, even a few humans are shown dying in graphic ways. a woman gets hit in the head and dies. she is later revived soon after a ship explodes. another sequence shows a young boy getting run over by a truck (you see his body slam against the windshield) and his brother crys for the rest of the film. the final distressing scene shows an explosion in a subway. asides for all the graphic mayhem, is a subplot about a mothers alcohol use.

15+?! Come on, my younger sister watched this with me!

My rating: PG-13 for mature themes, a few scenes involving brief violence, and for some drinking. Positive Messages & Role Models: 1/5 - Not negative (except for a drunk woman), but not really positive, either. Violence: 2.5 - Very little and very brief. In the beginning, there is a tsunami. In one scene, a boy is hit by a bus. No blood is shown, but there are a few bruises shown. In another scene, a boy is about to board a subway, but the door close just in time. When the train is almost completely through its first tunnel, we hear an explosion, but all we really see is sparks flying out the back of the train. Sex: 1.5/5 - A few kisses, but they are just pecks on the cheek. In one scene, we see a woman dressed in only her bra and panties. This lasts for about five seconds. Language: 1/5 - Some, but barely noticeable. Consumerism: 0/5 - Nothing to worry over. Drinking & Drugs: 3/5 - Twins witness their mother coming home drunk and giggling from New Year's, holding a bottle of alcohol. Wine is seen in a handful of scenes. Matt Damon's character mentions taking pills, but nothing is seen, and the reference is likely to go over kids' heads.

A pretty good movie!

This is a very thought-provoking film. There really isn't any inappropriate content that teens couldn't handle; it's just the main theme about death that may prove to heavy for younger tweens. Although the movie often chugs along, it is very interesting, and I thought that it was a great movie. Great acting, and decent directing from Mr. Clint Eastwood.

This movie is really slow ..... but good.

The good stuff * Messages: Though the movie's themes are heavy, it has a somewhat hopeful message about life after death. Nobody is vilified in the film for either believing or not believing in the idea of the hereafter. There’s also a longing for connection that rings true. * Role models: Marie is fearless; when faced with incredulity about what she thinks comes after death, she sets out to make her case rather than giving in to avoid confrontation. George is somewhat closed off, but his attempts at being social are notable. The bond between Marcus and his brother is admirable and moving. These three don’t stop searching, which makes them fascinating to watch. What to watch out for * Violence: The movie opens with a frighteningly realistic portrayal of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami that claimed thousands of lives. Viewers see the water sweeping into the coast and engulfing homes and people, including a woman who gets hit by a vehicle. Another scene shows a boy being run over by a car as he tries to escape the clutches of a bullying mob. Frank discussion of death and how some people die; one character brings up a secret about sexual abuse. * Sex: Couples flirt, embrace, and kiss. * Language: Limited use of "s--t" and "f--k," plus "crap," "oh my God," and more. * Consumerism: Product names/labels shown include Nikon, Coca-Cola, Vicks, Virgin, and BlackBerry. * Drinking, drugs, & smoking: One woman is an addict; her arms are shown with syringe marks. Some social drinking.

This movie was great. there are some drugs because a woman is an addict. It does say F*#K and [email protected]#T.There is some kissing and some violence that is realistic like tsunamis. It was a great move and gave out a positive message to all children and adult.
