Soldiers of FortuneClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Soldiers of Fortune -- an underwhelming action movie with a war setting -- has lots of weapons and heavy shooting, with lots of spurting blood. Characters die. Language is strong, though not constant, and includes both "f--k" and "s--t." Characters drink alcohol from time to time, but in a background way, with no drunkenness. Supporting characters learn to work together and to be less selfish, but the main character's motivation is revenge.
- Many powerful weapons and lots of shooting, with much spurting blood as bullets impact human flesh. In a harrowing scene, evil soldiers attack a village, blowing up buildings and shooting unarmed civilians. A man is shot by a tank. Many characters, including some of the main supporting characters, die. A character has a bullet painfully removed from his leg. Violent video games are shown and/or described, with titles like Death Porn and Baby Killer.
- Language is fairly infrequent but includes a few "f--k"s, plus at least one "s--t" and the occasional use of "bitch," "bastard," "ass," "piss," "hell," "goddamn," "screw you," and innuendo like "losing your cherry." Characters also say "Jesus Christ" in tense situations.
- Social Behavior
- Soldiers of Fortune has a subplot about learning not to be selfish and working together -- but the main storyline is about revenge.
- Not applicable
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Characters are shown drinking whisky, beer, wine, cognac, and champagne in a background, social way. No one gets drunk. Characters also smoke expensive cigars in more than one scene. Cognac is used to disinfect a wound and to help ease the pain of a man with a bullet in his leg.
