Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Trust is a plodding, formulaic heist film about two Las Vegas cops (Nicolas Cage and Elijah Wood) who discover a huge, hidden vault. The film tries to make up for a lack of genuine tension by including some unexpectedly violent moments that may be shocking for young viewers (there are shootings, and a brutal home invasion leaves one man dead, covered in blood). Strong language is frequent but not constant (you'll hear "s--t," "f--k," "ass," and more), and a sex scene features shots of a woman's bare breasts. One character smokes both pot and cigarettes frequently.
