What parents need to know

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.
  • Families can talk about the movie's over-the-top violence. Do these gruesome, bloody scenes serve specific functions?
  • Discuss how the film treats women.
  • The mutants want to breed with them, and the men want to protect them -- what do the women themselves want?
