What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Hands of Stone is a biopic about great Panamanian boxer Roberto Duran (Edgar Ramirez). In the style of Rocky, Hands features extensive footage of boxers in the ring, brutally pounding each other as slow-motion camerawork and thudding sounds make the impact clear. Sweat and spit fly, and boxers wince, fall, and get swollen faces and eyes. Two other violent scenes center around Duran's wife: when he meets her, he flirts with her before chasing her and cornering her against a wall, asking her to marry him as she cowers, then responds. Much later, during a fight, he chases her and pulls her to the ground, where she cuts her hand on broken glass before fleeing. In another sexually violent and menacing scene, Duran insults a fellow boxer, telling his wife he's going to "f--k" her husband up in the ring, then "f--k" her at night, an act for which he apologizes late in the movie. U.S. soldiers fire guns to scare a young Panamanian boy. Frequent language includes "f--k," "s--t," "schmuck," "prick," and the "N" word. Adults drink at parties, often getting sloppy and violent. One character smokes a cigarette.
