Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie -- which was executive-produced by grindhouse aficionado Quentin Tarantino -- has all of the violence, language, and extreme behavior of one of his films, but none of the wit, well-drawn characters, or cinematic brilliance. Tarantino's involvement may pique teens' interest, but the constant and extreme level of sexual content (including full-frontal nudity), language, drinking, drug use, and other adult situations isn't age-appropriate for them (or for just about anyone, really).
Gratuitous and frequent topless and full-frontal nudity; multiple sex scenes; extensive discussion of sex, oral sex, necrophilia, and more; some groping and ogling; kissing; scenes set in strip clubs. Pornography is glimpsed. Same-sex kissing; implied sex with multiple participants. Topless wrestling.
Shootings, beatings, throat-slitting, garroting, and more; guns, crossbows, knives, and fire are used to kill. Many characters are subjected to having their throats cut and then being set on fire. Graphic special-effects close-ups of cut throats, severed heads, bullet wounds, blood spatter, etc. are shown. A character is chloroformed. Torture to obtain information. Scalping. Discussion of whether to cuts the heads or pinkies off dead victims as trophies.
Constant strong language, including "f--k," "motherf---er," "p---y," "s--t," "a--holes," and more.
The main characters -- a motorcycle gang -- go on a bloody revenge spree to avenge a decades-old wrong. Their lifestyle is portrayed as an endless series of violent acts, sexual encounters, and criminal activity. Two characters discuss how high-end motorcycling is moving toward respectability and becoming a legitimate, lucrative business and recreational activity. Female characters are stereotypical and objectified.
Indian motorcycles are mentioned; no other brands mentioned or visible on screen.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Constant smoking, drinking, and drug use. Beer and hard liquor are drunk to excess; cigarettes and cigars are smoked; marijuana is frequently smoked; one character goes on a peyote-fueled vision quest in the desert; mention is made of the '60s biker trade in LSD and cocaine; a methamphetamine lab is glimpsed. "Pill-popping" is mentioned.
