Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this comic book-like fantasy from the director of 300 has disturbing scenes that show men taking advantage of women ... whose sole purpose is to entertain the men. The main female characters are clad in skimpy clothing for much of the movie, too, which seems hypocritical, given that the film is about how a band of oppressed girls take back their power -- the movie ends up reinforcing some of the stereotypes it's theoretically out to bust. Though the fight scenes are often cartoonish in nature, they're unrelenting and brutal, including shoot-outs, swordfights, stabbings, beheadings, and the threat of sexual assault. There's some swearing ("s--t"), too.
One forced kiss. The women are basically prostitutes, and they discuss their work. They often wear skimpy clothing.
Lots of cartoonish, exaggerated violence: Men hit women, women hit men, and there are shoot-outs, swordfights, hand-to-hand fights, stabbings, slicings, beheadings, and a lobotomy. A few scenes show men sexually assaulting women or threatening to do so.
Occasional use of "s--t," "bulls--t," "hell," "damn," "ass," "goddamn," and "bitch."
While the movie is about how a band of oppressed girls takes back their power, the film undermines that theme somewhat by having them clad in skimpy, provocative attire -- it reinforces some stereotypes about women while purporting to challenge them. Still, ultimately the movie is saying that you control your life, and you have the power to slay your demons so you can finally be free of them and free to be who you want to be.
