Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Liberator is a biographical drama about Latin America's legendary 19th-century revolutionary, Simon Bolivar. Starring Venezuelan actor Edgar Ramirez as Bolivar, the movie (which is mostly in subtitled Spanish but occasionally features English dialogue) is educational but also violent, and it doesn't shy away from Bolivar's romantic relationships (there are a few partially nude love scenes). The violence includes war sequences of charging soldiers who kill one another; a group of civilians, including children, being hanged to death; slaves being mistreated and hurt; and various characters being assassinated. History buffs will learn about the revered freedom fighter and the epic struggle for Latin American independence, but some of the discoveries may be inappropriate for young viewers.

Sexual Content

A few sex scenes include a topless woman and a shirtless man. Bolivar, a young widower, is depicted as having a way with the ladies. He has love scenes with his wife, and later, after she dies, with a courtesan and a lover who helped save his life.


Several war scenes of people being killed, executed, hanged, burned with their homes, etc. Sugar plantation slaves are shown being mistreated. Some characters die of sickness, leaving Bolivar virtually without a family.


Language is occasionally strong in both English and Spanish (the movie is mostly subtitled). Words include the Spanish equivalent of "s--t," "f--k," "screw," etc.

Social Behavior

Explores the importance of Latin American independence and how other countries' revolutions helped inspire Bolivar and his cohorts to rebel against their royal oppressors. Bolivar's mentor preaches the idea that men with means should help lead the charge for all people, not just align themselves with other people with land and money.
