Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this epic tale from director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream) takes on a character of biblical proportions, Noah. As befits the mayhem recounted in the bible, Noah is filled with catastrophe. The skies rain down from the heavens, drowning nearly everything, and humans are nearly feral as they battle each other for survival. There's no real swearing, just the word "damned," but plenty of brutality and gore: mountains of dead bodies are shown, sometimes close up, humans beat each other to death, sometimes with rocks, knives and spears.
Some passionate kissing. Allusions to needing to bed people of the opposite sex in order to procreate.
The violence is epic, bloody, and sometimes gory. Enemies club, stone, stab, or spear each other to death. A few scenes show mass graves, underwater and on dry land. Corpses are shown close up, some without limbs. A character threatens to kill babies. Humans resort to violence in a fight to stay alive. Lots of destruction shown from flooding, as well as fires and battles.
"Damned" is as salty as it gets.
Faith guides you where you need to go, but as a human, you also have the power of choice. Man's connection to and responsibility toward the environment is also a theme.
Drugs / Tobacco /
A man drinks a brew that brings on visions. It's not clear what it is. Later he's shown what appears to be a substance that makes him drunk.
