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.
