Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Jane Got a Gun is a Western that features a strong, if violent, female character (Natalie Portman). Violence is very strong, with shooting and killing; characters die on screen, and there are blood spurts. Characters are also choked and catch on fire, and there's a scene of bullets being dug out of someone's flesh (and wound then cauterized with gunpowder). There's a brief suggestion of rape. A woman is rescued from what seems like a whorehouse, though nothing graphic is shown. Language is strong, with more than one use of "f--k," several uses of "s--t," and uses of "c---sucker," "bitch," and more. Characters drink whiskey and smoke cigarettes and cigars fairly regularly; one character may be drinking too much. It likely won't appeal to viewers who aren't already Western fans.
Implication that Jane has slept with two men (and had one child by each), although she didn't know that the first was alive when she slept with the second. Images inside a possible "whorehouse," though nothing graphic shown.
Heavy guns and shooting, with blood spurts, serious wounds, and dead bodies. Explosions, bodies on fire. Digging bullets out of a person's skin; cauterizing a wound with gunpowder and flame (accompanied by howls of pain). Suggestion of a potential rape. Choking. Nasty scar. Dead bird (crashed into a window).
Strong language includes a few uses of "f--k" and several uses of "s--t," plus "goddamn," "c---sucker," "son of a bitch," "hell," "whore," "prick," and "damn."
