In the rugged countryside of Finland, a young thirteen-year-old embarks on a traditional quest to prove himself by spending twenty-four hours alone in the wild, armed with only a bow and arrow. After witnessing a spectacular crash, he discovers the escape pod from Air Force One, containing the President of the United States.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Big Game is a violent action-adventure movie in the spirit of Air Force One or Die Hard, but with a 13-year-old as the hero. Directed by a Finnish filmmaker, the movie is set in Finland's remote wilderness, where a boy finds the president of the United States (Samuel L. Jackson) trapped in an escape pod. Expect frequent violence, use of advanced weapons, and a high body count, mostly from gunshot wounds and explosions. The language is infrequently strong but does include "s--t" and one use of "motherf---ker." Families who watch it with middle school-aged kids and up can discuss rites of passage, courage under fire, and how young people can save the day.

Sexual Content

Not applicable

Violence

Strong violence and a high body count. People die in airplane explosions, are thrown off of planes and helicopters, get shot in the heart with an arrow, and are killed at gunpoint or with a rocket-propelled grenade-type of weapon. Men beat up the president and a 13-year-old boy who's helping him. The boy has a dead deer's head strapped to his backpack throughout part of the movie.

Language

Infrequent strong language includes "s--t," "ass," "damn," and one notable "motherf--ker."

Social Behavior

Biggest message is about courage under fire -- don't give up just because the odds are against you, and find the strength to face your enemies and help others, even if it means endangering yourself.
