Compelling Eco-Terrorist Drama is Okay For Teens.

Parents, this compelling terrorist drama from the co-writer of "The Pianist" is a thoughtful and tense film, but the mature themes and terrorist attacks are too disturbing for younger teens. Violence includes a character cutting her arm open with a torn aluminum can, people being drowned in poisoned pools of oil, burning bodies, explosions, a man being forced to jump into a heavily polluted lake, which kills him, terrorists slipping dangerous drugs into champagne at a large party, and disturbing news footage is shown of animals and torn open bodies, covered in oil. Sex includes some partial nudity (flashes of female breasts & male buttocks and genitals), same-sex kissing, a sex scene, and themes of infidelity, along with some pretty graphic sexual references (about sex addiction and lesbian relationships). Language includes one whispered use of "f--k" and one use of "b-tch". In the end, this compelling terrorist movie is fantastic, but not for younger kids. SUGGESTED MPAA RATING: Rated PG-13 For Some Grisly Images, Violent Thematic Material, Disturbing References, Sexual Content, Partial Nudity And Brief Language
