Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this creature-centric horror movie includes lots of bloody violence: The film's giant crocodile rips up and eats people, militiamen shoot at civilians, a family is executed, and more. There's discussion of "black-on-black violence" in the United States and Africa. A teenager character shoots a villain and is upset by it. An attempted rape scene involves a rough assault, ripped clothing, and the female victim's distress. Some drinking and smoking; language includes multiple uses of "f--k," plus other obscenities and sexual slang.

Sexual Content

Some cleavage shots; Steven makes sexually themed jokes about the croc (puts his hand through his fly as if it's the croc; alludes to too-small cage as a too-small "condom"); sexual slang ("tap that ass," "hard-on"); jokes about a closeted gay man getting his "ass tapped").

Violence

Movie opens with shot of a mass grave (closeups of worms, rotting remains); crocodile attacks are brutal (chomping bodies, crunching a skull, screaming victims); fights (punching, kicking, hit to crotch); fairly explicit shooting executions; weapons include axe, machete, AK-47s, handguns, knives, grenades; war participants shoot repeatedly (bodies thrown, bloodied, dismembered); attempted rape; blood splattering onto observers during violent scenes; dismembered limbs, skulls, bones; boy shoots a villain in the back; Krieg describes watching his wife be eaten; blood spreads in water (shown from overhead); blood/urine mix (made to attract croc) thrown on villain.

Language

Multiple uses of "f--k" (about 15, some with "mother"); other language includes "s--t" (20+), "ass," "damn," "hell."

Social Behavior

Croc hunters range from cynical to well-intentioned, but all are ignorant and cocky (until they die or are taught lesson); villains are greedy, bloodthirsty, cruel.

Consumerism

Verbal reference to Starbucks, visuals for Nike and Fubu (T-shirts), Budweiser (sweatband), Sony (camcorder).

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Cigar smoking by villain; beers for protagonists.
