Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this monster movie from the creator of Lost rightly comes with a warning for viewers who are sensitive to unsteady camerawork -- the entire movie is filmed from a handheld perspective, and the images are frequently hectic and loud. Violence includes monster attacks, people running and screaming, people bitten by creatures in dark spaces, explosions, ruined buildings and landmarks, fire, bloody bodies, and military strikes. Some of the imagery initially recalls scenes from 9/11. An early scene shows a young woman in bed (presumably after sex), her naked back and side visible (nothing explicit). A party scene shows cleavage and drinking. Language includes repeated uses of "s--t" and some "damns" and "hells."

Sexual Content

Early scene shows a naked woman in bed, her back visible. Party scene shows woman's cleavage, especially as the cameraman is drawn to women's bodies (his shifting focus serves as light comedy).

Violence

First apparent explosion jars the camera, shuts down power, and leads characters to worry about an earthquake or terrorist attack. Later images recall 9/11 in NYC (building crumbles; dust cloud sweeps through the street; people run, scream, and stumble). TV reports show fires and buildings and a bridge collapsing. Large reptilian monster is occasionally visible (roaring, smashing buildings); smaller/sharp-toothed monsters attack protagonists in a very dark subway tunnel. Most of the action focuses on victims panicking, with loud smashing and booming on the soundtrack. Military assaults (explosions, missiles, gunfire, bombs).

Language

Repeated uses of "s--t," as well as "hell," "goddamn," and some slang ("douchebag").

Social Behavior

The monster's motivations are never revealed -- it's just a force for the horrific.

Consumerism

Some brief background shots: Aquafina, Mountain Dew.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Party scene shows drinking (beer, liquor) and a bar stocked with bottles.
