Parents need to know that The Forgotten Battle is a definitely-not-for-kids Dutch World War II movie about the Battle of the Scheldt. A gritty war film, this intense historical snapshot of brutal combat contains a ton of violence, blood, gore, shooting, fighting, stabbing, explosions, killing, beatings, torture, suicide, and executions. Men get their limbs blown off and hold onto their legs and arms, screaming in agony. Trucks run over soldiers, men shoot men point blank, across fields, in the trenches, in residential areas, and often in the head. Lots of dead bodies pile up and wounded soldiers are often shown with bandages, missing limbs, necks cut or slit, and/or with shrapnel all over their bodies. There are executions, torture (Nazis torture a resistance fighter by cutting off his fingers or bashing them in), suicide (men blow their own heads off), and tank cannon fire that explode many people into bits. Not for the faint of heart, this incredibly realistic portrayal of war is thrilling, but very brutal. Some strong language includes, "s--t," "sissy," "bastard," "idiot," "dingbat," and "hell," and men drink alcohol and constantly smoke cigarettes. Strong messages of sacrifice, courage, and fighting against fascism.
