Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Skyfall is a thrilling, entertaining, and -- as you'd expect -- frequently violent entry in the beloved James Bond franchise. While not as gritty/dark as star Daniel Craig's last two go-rounds (Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace), Skyfall has all of the ingredients that longtime Bond fans have come to count on: sex scenes that are suggestive but not explicit, frequent sexual repartee, guns, fights, big explosions, car chases, some cringe-inducing injuries and deaths, and constant peril. There's also some drinking and swearing (one "f--k," plus "s--t" and more) and some almost flirtatious-feeling scenes between Bond and the main villain. And, of course, the requisite product placement for everything from Aston Martin cars to Tom Ford clothes.

Sexual Content

Lots of sexual innuendo and sex scenes in the shadows -- literally, with couples in darkness in scenes that show Bond's bare chest and/or a woman's naked back. Kissing. Some scenes between bond and the villain feel flirtatious as well.

Violence

Though not as dark/gritty/bloody as Quantum of Solace, in true Bond fashion, there's nonstop action mayhem, with a strangling, gunfire, point-blank shootings, an execution, huge explosions, hand-to-hand combat, stabbings, car/train crashes, the works. A character removes shrapnel from himself with a knife. Characters die from falls, being eaten by hungry animals (not shown explicitly), gunshots, and more.

Language

Infrequent swearing includes one "f--k," plus a few uses of "s--t," "damn," "c--k," "hell," "bitch," "for Christ's sakes," "bastard," "buggered," and "bloody."

Social Behavior

While espionage and conflict/violence are glamorized throughout the Bond series, in this installment, loyalty, tradition, and the notion that "right trumps might" prevail.

Consumerism

Brands seen early and often include Rolex, Aston Martin, Audi, Sony Vaio, Range Rover, VW, Heineken, Tom Ford, etc.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A martini, shaken (not stirred), makes an appearance. Bond also drinks other alcohol frequently in some parts of the movie, sometimes with the apparent purpose of getting drunk. Social drinking at parties and restaurants. A woman smokes a cigarette.
