Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this "torture porn" film, like all of the movies in the Saw series, revolves around cruelty, gore, and diabolical deathtraps -- all smothered in horrific make-up and special effects. A person is injected with acid until they literally melt in half; a group of people are shot, one by one, at point-blank range; and so on -- the deaths are brutal, bloody, and lingered over (viewers will see exposed organs, compound fractures shoving shattered bone edges through flesh, and worse). The movie is theoretically trying to make a few points about healthcare, but any social commentary is lost amid the buckets of blood and constant strong language.
Constant bloody, grisly violence, including horrifying deathtraps requiring self-mutilation in order to escape, fighting, shooting at point-blank range, dismemberment, disembowelment, decapitation, death by crushing, hanging (by barbed wire), slashed jugulars, shootings, being set on fire, and much more. And it's all depicted with state-of-the-art makeup and gore.
Constant strong language, including "f--k" and its derivatives, "s--t," "ass," "p---y," "hell," "goddamn," and much more.
There's some lip service paid to the human will to live, but it's coated in blood. A critique of health care and for-profit insurance is intrinsic to the film's plot, but it's also smothered in gore.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Characters drink beer, wine, and hard liquor. Discussions of the health effects of smoking (smoking itself is shown); a smoker's reduced lung capacity winds up being what kills him (as part of a deathtrap, of course). Discussion of the psychological characteristics and chemical treatment of addiction, including methadone.
