Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this smart but violent UK alien invasion movie from some of the folks behind cult faves Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz features lots of cartoony sci-fi monster battles, with heavy gore (expect to see severed heads, spurting blood, limbs being torn off, and more). Language is likewise strong, with streetwise teens constantly using "f--k" and other words, and pot-smoking is a major event in the characters' lives -- some of the teens spend the entire movie stoned, and they hang out with a drug dealer who keeps a special room filled with pot plants. Beneath all of the iffy stuff, though, there are messages about working together and learning to respect others.

Sexual Content

Occasional sexual innuendo.

Violence

Strong (albeit cartoonish) sci-fi violence, with several battles against monsters from outer space. Monsters are killed, as are some humans; images include severed heads, face-ripping, throat-ripping, leg-biting, spurting blood, and other gory scenes. Viewers see knives, swords, guns, and various other weapons (including a rocket).

Language

Very strong, almost constant language, including nonstop use of words like "f--k," "s--t," "t-ts," "balls," "pube," and more.

Social Behavior

Former adversaries learn to work together to battle a greater threat, and in the process they learn to respect and empathize with one another. They exhibit teamwork to triumph over some terrifying odds.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Pot smoking is a major pastime in the teen characters' lives; some are stoned throughout the entire movie. They hang out with a drug dealer, who keeps a special room filled with pot plants.
