What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Den of Thieves is a heist thriller starring Gerard Butler that focuses on a group of robbers and the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department. The bad guys end up being more sympathetic than the good guys, who are hard-drinking bullies who objectify women. It's also really violent: Expect to see lots of guns and shooting, plus bloody wounds, punching and beating, arguing, and bullying. Language is extremely strong and almost constant, with uses of "f--k," "motherf----r," "p---y," and more. There's brief partial nudity, as well as suggested sexual situations and partially clad women who appear to be strippers. The main character sometimes acts hungover and seems to drink a great deal. There's lots of social drinking in general, and the main character also smokes cigarettes. The movie sends problematic messages about manhood (i.e., it's all about bodybuilding, swagger, and pushing people around), and some characters make racially charged remarks.
