Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Pioneer is a paranoid conspiracy thriller from Norway, spoken in English and Norwegian with English subtitles. Strong language (mostly in English) includes several uses of "f--k" and "s--t"; there's also some in the subtitles. Violence includes chases, fights, dead bodies, and some blood. There are tense situations involving underwater accidents and pressure chambers (including some torture), as well as some sexual innuendo and brief scenes of sexual harassment as men expose their penises to women (but only a naked male butt is shown on screen). The Norwegian director also made the original version of Insomnia, which was remade by Christopher Nolan, so older teen cinema buffs may be interested in this.

Sexual Content

One naked male butt. Brief innuendo. A happy couple kisses.


Tense situations. An underwater accident results in a death. Fighting. A man has a seizure. Car chase and crash. Head wound. Dead bodies. Pressure chamber torture. Explosion. Men sexually harass a woman, showing her their penises (off screen).


"F--k" and "s--t" used several times. Also "motherf----r," "goddamn," "son of a bitch."

Social Behavior

No one can be trusted. Greed rules everything. Governments would sooner kill innocent people than give up on enormous profits.
