Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this is an epic fantasy adventure in the style of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Despite the overwhelming number of negative reviews, tweens -- especially boys -- may want to see it, partly thanks to English action star Jason Statham (The Transporter). There are several intense, violent battles between orc-like creatures and the kingdom's army and civilians, but very few bloody deaths (it's obvious that many, many people die, but it's not graphic). The sexual content is limited to three or four kissing scenes between two couples -- two of which occur in a bed. The language is remarkably tame, and, this being a fantasy flick, there are no product tie-ins.
- Sexual Content
- Gallian and Muriella kiss and fool around (clothed) in bed; he makes reference to "taking" her virtue. Farmer and his wife also kiss a few times, including once in bed. Duke Fallow has a young woman sit on his lap while he gropes her chest and arms.
- Several violent battles between the kingdom's townsfolk and soldiers against Gallian's troops of "gurks." Many deaths, but they're not graphic/bloody. A child is killed, but it happens off camera.
- Minor -- one or two uses of "damn" and "hell."
- Social Behavior
- Gallian and the Duke are obsessed with power, even if it means destroying an entire kingdom. The rest of the main characters are all courageous and selfless, willing to die for their cause.
- Not applicable
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Duke Fallow drinks wine and asks for it before a duel.
