Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Predestination is a mind-bending time-travel movie that's more about ideas than action. There are a few somewhat intense, violent moments, including an explosion, a burned face, shootings, a killing, fighting, and some blood. A sex scene includes thrusting and a naked female breast; there are fairly mature sexual themes throughout the movie. Language includes more than one use of "f--k," "s--t," "son of a bitch," and "goddamn," with other words scattered throughout. Characters are seen rolling cigarettes and smoking, but only in a background way. A large part of the story takes place in a bar, and characters are shown drinking (whisky), but not to excess. Hardcore sci-fi fans will be excited to see it, though it's probably not for all tastes; casual viewers may find it confusing.

Sexual Content

Fairly strong sex scene with thrusting, naked female breast. Women seek jobs "releasing tension for astronauts," i.e. as a kind of sex object/slave. Characters think about sex. A woman gets pregnant. General talk about sexuality.

Violence

Guns and shooting. Some death and blood. Explosion, with a gory burn victim. Fighting, punching, bloody wounds. "Fizzle Bomber" villain, with descriptions of violent acts and number of victims. Kids fighting, punching. A near car accident. A fit of anger, punching. Kidnapped baby. General creepy stuff.

Language

More than one use of "f--k," "s--t," "son of a bitch," and "goddamn," plus "bitch," "retard," "damn," "f----t," "Jesus," "Christ's sake," and "hell."

Social Behavior

Asks deep questions about identity and the concept of the inevitable. Why do we do the things we do? Can we change our destiny? What has been foretold, and what hasn't?

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Much of the movie takes place in a bar with some casual background drinking. Characters are shown rolling cigarettes, smoking. Main character drinks whisky. Background characters smoke.
