Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie based on the graphic novel by Dave Stevens can get pretty violent. There are plenty of car chases, aviation disasters, gun fights, and explosions. A mobster holds a character's head close to a restaurant grill, but doesn't cause injury. The bad guys are killed off mainly by gunfire, with the exception of the two nastiest characters who are burned to death. There's some mild language (mostly "damn" and "hell") and sexual content too as a drugged heroine is revived and (unsuccessfully) seduced in the villain's bedroom. Kids will get a bit of a history lesson with the movie's depictions of Howard Hughes and W. C. Fields and a classic newsreel shown in a theater.

Sexual Content

Some romantic kisses. Lots of lingering shots of cleavage as the drugged heroine is revived and (unsuccessfully) seduced in the villain's bedroom; she escapes his lustful clutches by knocking him out cold with a vase. W.C. Fields says he's "doubly charmed" as he leers at Jenny's cleavage.

Violence

Plenty of car chases, aviation disasters, quick fist fights, gunfire (a house is practically turned into Swiss cheese), and explosions. A mobster holds a character's head close to a restaurant grill, but doesn't cause injury. Evildoers are killed off mainly by gunfire and falling from great heights, with the exception of the two nasty characters who are incinerated by an exploding rocket pack and a burning zeppelin. Jenny is knocked out with chloroform and kidnapped.

Language

Lots of "hell" and "damn" and "dammit" plus one "son-of-a-bitch" and one "bloody," but nothing stronger. Germans are called "Krauts" and Neville is called a "Limey."

Social Behavior

Good against evil plays a part here in pre-war 1938, although in real life the original plan for the rocket invention was not for use in the war.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some light smoking of cigars and cigarettes. Champagne is toasted and talked about.
