Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Black Sea is a tense, frequently violent submarine thriller starring Jude Law. Language is the biggest issue, with almost constant uses of "f--k" and "s--t," as well plenty of other words. There are a few killings and several deaths, with some bloody wounds and burned corpses seen, but the majority of violence hinges on the sub itself crashing. There's also a pervasive sense of tension and anxiety. Characters smoke and drink in a background way, and there are subtle references to teenage sex, as well as some kissing. Characters do exhibit some teamwork (though it eventually falters), but the bigger message is a condemnation of greed; characters' decisions are affected by the presence of gold.

Sexual Content

An 18-year-old looks at a picture of an ultrasound, implying that he's gotten a girl pregnant. (This despite references to him being a virgin.) Flashbacks to a character's wife wearing a bikini on a beach. Some kissing.


Gory, burned corpses. Stabbing with knife. Beating to death with wrench. Several deaths. Angry shouting, fighting. Explosions, crashes. Bloody wounds. Skeletons of shackled dead bodies. General anxiety, tension, and terror as a sub floods with water.


Nearly constant swearing, including very frequent use of "f--k" and "s--t." Also "ass," "whore," "d--k," "prick," "bastard," and "sweet Jesus."

Social Behavior

Some moments when teamwork is required to survive and characters of different cultures come together, but these moments are fairly short-lived, and they don't add up to much. Otherwise, the movie demonstrates that greed -- both by corporations and by individuals -- is destructive.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
