Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie begins with some family tension -- a single father and his teenage daughter clash over her boyfriend -- but as soon as the wave hits (some 10 minutes in), the brutal, often fatal, action is non-stop. So are the bodies: Broken, bloodied, and burned corpses appear every time the core group of survivors turns a corner. This group is beleaguered by fires, explosions, flooding/rushing water, and crashing architecture as they make their way to the surface. They teeter across hand-made bridges over dizzying heights, get locked in flooding rooms, fight with each other, and risk their lives for each other.

Sexual Content

Some kissing and discussion of romance between primary couple; one character is gay (we hear about a boyfriend who left him).


Many dead bodies, in various states (bloody, burned, broken, sometimes in foregrounds of shots); several explosions on the ship; character pinned under scaffolding; several characters fall from frightening heights; blood indicates injuries (mouth, eye, face, limbs); characters are caught in an airshaft; characters drown repeatedly; man tries to throw oxygen tank out a vacuum-ish hole, resulting in much tension and loud slamming of his body against columns and walls.


Very mild language ("damn," You gotta couple a big ones").

Social Behavior

Some characters are courageous and generous, saving others at great risk to themselves; others are plainly selfish and afraid; Dylan transitions from being selfish to selfless.


Vending machine with brands visible.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters smoke cigarettes at party, drink alcohol; nasty character drinks from flask and gets drunk during the escape.
