Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that twisty, smart espionage drama The Game is too confusing and menacing for kids, though serious older teens might be interested. Most characters have murky motives and secrets. There is some on-screen kissing and flirting with references to sex, particularly from one character who uses his sexuality to pry loose state secrets. Couples are shown naked in bed with private parts covered by sheets. A female character is called a "bitch," but most cursing is of the British "blasted" and "bloody" variety. Characters smoke cigarettes and drink on-screen, in keeping with the era. Violence occurs mostly offscreen, but viewers will see some blood and hear references to deaths. Most characters are in physical danger, perhaps even mortal danger; there are many tense scenes in which characters may be caught in acts of espionage.
