Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Dragon Blade is a martial arts battle epic that takes place around 50 B.C. and is based on a true story. Starring Jackie Chan and John Cusack, it features lots of action and fairly graphic violence, with bloody wounds and blood sprays, arrows piercing bodies, and broken and severed limbs. Plus tons of fighting with swords, spears, and arrows, as well as boulders and other handy items. The soldiers also drink enthusiastically after battles, and there's a bit of sexual innuendo when a character catches a falling woman by cupping her breasts. Despite the brutal violence, the movie has strong messages about teamwork and friendship. It's worth noting that the official U.S. release 21was trimmed by 25 minutes, and the storytelling suffers as a consequence.
During a fight, a woman falls on a man; he catches her by cupping her breasts. Later it's implied that they're "married" since he inadvertently removed her veil during battle.
