More curse words than I thought

When I read the review for this movie I didn’t grasp the frequency of the use of the word sh*t. It is used very gratuitously and in places where it easily could’ve been omitted. My kids were very excited to see this movie since it’s marketed as an adventure movie in the style of Journey 2 the Mysterious Island or Indiana Jones but when we were actually watching it I was about to leave the theater. At least every 30 seconds a cuss word is used which, if you’re marketing the movie as a family movie they could’ve gotten rid of at least half of the cuss words… most of them don’t add anything to the plot. Another thing to watch is the amount of alcohol the characters drink. It feels like everywhere they’re at there’s alcohol to drink, and then when it’s done with they find more… There’s also a character that murders his dad, and another character gets his throat sliced and that is visible (the cut is visible but not too much blood is shown). I just felt I needed to post this since when I checked here to see if I should take my 10 & 11 y.o. there was a review that said it was great for the whole family and recommended for children as young as 5 but from my experience this shouldn’t be the case.

The movie is ok if you’re looking for a movie that you can take your pre-teen and up to. Based on the other reviews, I expected there to be a lot of swearing but the most was really about 5 or 6 times that the word sh** was mentioned. Think kids hear a lot worse swearing from kids in school than that. Its an action/adventure film so expect your usual fight and chase scenes and death of the baddies. There is a scene where a throat gets slashed but its not really gory. You just see it happen and it looks like a red line on the person’s throat after.
