Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this sci-fi thriller based on the best-selling young adult novel by Pittacus Lore is heavy on suspense and action, some of which may be too intense for younger fans of Glee's Dianna Agron and up-and-coming "it" guy Alex Pettyfer. In addition to the movie's action/violence (which includes fights, weapons, and menacing killers), expect some swearing (including "s--t" and "a--hole"), scenes depicting high-school bullying (taunts, shoves, pranks), implied teen drinking, and a bit of kissing/flirty banter.

Sexual Content

Some kissing and light sexual banter.

Violence

Plenty of action-packed moments, some of which are somewhat bloody and involve intricate weapons that are similar to machine guns and scythes. The killers hot on John's heels appear quite menacing, flashing reptilian teeth and gills. They seem determined to destroy anything and anybody that gets in their way -- for example, one scene shows them about to gore a man with a weapon that looks like a small circular saw, and then he's shown being carried out in a body bag. One haunted house scene depicts teen boys manhandling a teen girl, and a boy who tries to protect her crushes them in an intense fistfight. Some bullying (taunts, shoves, etc.).

Language

Some swearing, including "a--hole," "s--t," "p---ies," "ass," "crap," "hell," "oh my God," and "bitch."

Social Behavior

The movie seems to say that you can't avoid your destiny -- and no matter how overwhelming the responsibilities of that destiny may be, you can rise to them.

Consumerism

Logos and brand names like Ford, Canon, and Nikon are flashed on screen. Characters use iPhones and call/text each other on them frequently.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

One scene takes place at a boisterous teenage party where kids are shown drinking what's presumably beer from cups.
