What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Gunman -- an action thriller starring Sean Penn -- has lots of bloody violence, with shooting, killing, and explosions. Characters often kill without consequence. Language includes more than one use of "f--k" and "s--t," as well as other words. There's one sex scene (though no sensitive body parts are shown) and a few other brief sexual situations (including naked male bottoms shown in passing). One minor character appears to have a drinking problem, and social drinking and smoking is shown. The movie has some buried messages about global economics and the exploitation of natural resources, but otherwise, it's a very serious and convoluted movie that most teens won't want to bother with.
