Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this downbeat tale of an unstoppable plague virus has a strong atmosphere of hopelessness and doom, with occasional dead/decaying bodies show (the only time a big pile of corpses appears, they're all encased in opaque bags). Violence includes several shootings, some at close range with blood. Swearing is PG-13 level, with one use of the F-word. Main boyfriend-girlfriend characters have obviously been sexually active, though no sex is actually shown. Parents have apparently been abandoned to perish, and we see small children who are similary destined for death. The main characters commit acts of vandalism, drunkenness, and recklessness.
- Sexual Content
- Suggestive talk ("eat me") between boyfriend and girlfriend. They start to strip for sex but get interrupted. A band of male survivors threaten to take the leading ladies, for their own unstated (but easy to guess) purposes, make them strip to their underwear for inspection.
- Fatal and non-fatal shootings draw blood, including the death of a dog. Gruesome corpses, as characters infected with the disease bleed and die, and one is shown after being burned on a pyre.
- Use of the s-word in varied permutations, "ass," "piss," "S.O.B." A written racial slur. One utterance of the F-word.
- Social Behavior
- Premise evokes an environment in which acts of compassion and mercy usually end in infection and death. Much is made of brotherly loyalty and sibling love (real-life brothers created this movie). But none of it proves strong enough to overcome the selfish, life-or-death choices here forced by a deadly virus.
- Car models, Jack Daniels whiskey on display. Mention of SpongeBob Squarepants.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Mention of "weed" (chiefly its absence). Drinking of beer and liquor until drunkenness sets in.
