Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this honor-and-freedom-themed historical action/drama set during Rome's occupation of Southern Britain has lots of fighting and violence. There are battles with swords, blades, and bows and arrows, as well as some blood, strangling, a severed head, and dead animals. Characters tell stories of bloody, exhausting battles, and a man smacks a young boy across the face. Language is minor (words include "ass," "fart," and "pissing"), and there's a little drinking -- but no sexual content. Although characters begin to doubt the need for war, that doesn't stop their penchant for violence.
Several battles and lots of fighting, with swords, blades, and bows and arrows, and some blood on view. People are burned and beheaded (off screen); viewers do see a severed head. Characters are also strangled, beaten, and severely injured. Viewers see hanged corpses, and a character guts a wild boar. Characters tell stories of battles and killings, and the remains of a "killing field" littered with skulls and skeletons are shown. The heroes kill, skin, and eat a raw rat. A grown man smacks a young boy across the face.
Language includes infrequent use of "fart," "pissing," "s--t," "damn," and "ass."
Although the heroes take on an "impossible" mission, bravely standing up against the odds (and, in the process, restoring a son's faith in his father), the results of the mission bring back a symbol of one country's dominance over another -- and to accomplish these goals, the heroes must engage in all kinds of violence.
Drugs / Tobacco /
The main character asks for wine before enduring a painful operation on his leg. Minor characters pass around what appears to be an alcoholic, hallucinogenic drink.
