Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this mutant-centric horror sequel definitely isn't for kids. The violence is gruesome and sustained, the language is unremitting ("f--k," in all its variations, is a constant), and an ugly rape scene ensures one woman's blind desire for revenge on an especially long-tongued, white-goo-spitting mutant. Weapons include knives, guns, and assorted body-piercing implements (spears, bayonet, poles). The very first scene is a bloody, screaming, gross-out birth (leading to the bare-breasted mother's immediate murder). An early mock battle scene is very fast-paced, aggressively edited, and loud. All assaults by mutants are bloody, gross, and horrible.
Early, grisly birth scene shows mother's breasts; discussion of a romance between a pair of National Guard troops includes sexual slang ("Doing a whole 'nother kind of draining"); assault by one mutant on a woman includes a long tongue lick -- he then inserts his tongue in her mouth (she bites it off, very bloody, and kicks him in crotch). Sexualized violence.
Bloody, close-up, gory, and relentless. National Guard trainees are introduced in a battle simulation shooting, exploding, and facing a suicide bomber; thereafter, bodies are thrown, grabbed, kicked, beaten, dismembered, disemboweled, exploded, shot, stabbed, and shown splatted on the ground. One dying man shows up inside a latrine, his cuts absorbing toxic sewage; heads are smashed, shot, and pierced; weapons include guns, knives, a cleaver, a grenade, dynamite, a bayonet, rocks, and a shovel. Jump scenes in cave; a horrible rape from behind (in shadows, but violence is very harsh and victim's face shows distress); bodies fall or are pulled into holes.
Incessant. Non-stop uses of "f--k" (several with "mother-" and one as finger gesture) in addition "s--t" and other language ("hell," damn," "ass," "c--k," "balls," and "bitch").
No positive messages to take away.
