Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Erased is a father-daughter thriller that's a little like some of Liam Neeson's recent movies (Taken, Unknown, etc.) but not as good. Violence is the biggest issue, with lots of dead bodies, fighting, shooting, stabbing, and blood. A teen girl is in jeopardy throughout the movie; she's left alone in tense situations, involved in a car crash, kidnapped, and injured (with a bloody forehead). The father-daughter relationship starts off very badly but improves slightly over the course of the movie. Language is the only other issue. It's sparse but includes at least one use of "s--t" (spoken by the teen girl). This routine movie sat on the shelf for a while and was released streaming/on demand before finally premiering in theaters.
The main character leaves a trail of dead bodies wherever he goes. He fights, strangles people, and shoots people. One desperate character grabs the trigger and squeezes, shooting himself in the head. A teen girl is in jeopardy throughout, survives a car crash, and is kidnapped and treated roughly. Her father even brings her into a morgue to inspect a selection of corpses. By the end, both main characters are covered with bloody cuts and scratches.
Language is sparse but includes "s--t" and "damn."
A man learns how to be a better father to his teen daughter by being honest with her and listening to her, though he does this in between brutal fights and chases. The movie briefly touches on the idea that our lives are completely electronic and can be suddenly erased, though it doesn't really explore it in depth.
The main character has a BlackBerry, which is mentioned once by name.
