What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Europa Report is a "found footage" sci-fi movie. The main issue isn't so much action violence as lots of tension and terror. Not much is actually shown (until the very end), but creepy things happen, characters die, and their absence is deeply felt. Language is very sparse but includes a few uses of "s--t" and one use of "son of a bitch." Romance and/or sexual tension isn't an issue. Teen sci-fi fans will recognize actor Sharlto Copley from District 9 and Elysium and may want to see it for him.
  • Families can talk about Europa Report's scariness and violence. What's shown, and what isn't shown? Which has the most impact, and why?
  • How effective is the teamwork between the characters? What could they have done to improve it?
  • Teens: Does this movie make being an astronaut look appealing? What's a real-life astronaut's job like?
