Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Terminator Genisys is the fifth movie in the blockbuster sci-fi/action series, with Arnold Schwarzenegger back in his star-making role. The sci-fi/fantasy violence is intense and nearly constant, with tons of shooting (both regular guns and laser ones), fighting, perilous chases, big crashes, and explosions -- but very little blood or death. Both male and female characters time travel naked, but no sensitive body parts are shown (just torsos, legs, etc.). Language is sporadic but includes one "f--k" and a few uses of "s--t" and "a--hole." This is the first in a planned trilogy, and teen sci-fi nuts will be eager to line up for it.
Male and female characters time travel naked, but there's no graphic nudity (only torsos and legs shown). Brief innuendo and titillation.
Nearly constant sci-fi violence. Shooting with both laser guns and regular guns. Some blood shown. Terminators are shot, smashed, dropped, caught in explosions, and destroyed by acid. Vehicle chases and crashes. Explosions, destruction, and images of nuclear destruction, with millions blown away in a single blast. Stabbing with "liquid metal" blade-arms. Some scary scenes/jump-shocks/chases/pursuits.
One use of "f--k," and a few uses of "s--t." Also "a--hole," "goddamn," "bite me," and "Jesus" (as an exclamation).
Briefly brings up the idea of freedom of choice; it's something that everyone wants, but what should you do with it once you have it? What's the best way to use your future?
