Rating: PG-13 for intense violent sequences throughout, some sexuality, language and smoking.
What it’s about: A computer hacker has stolen a list of secret agents, and James Bond wants them back.
The kid attractor factor: It’s James Bond, with car chases, epic brawls and lots and lots of action.
Good lessons/ bad lessons: “Age is no guarantee of efficiency" and “Youth is no guarantee of innovation."
Language: Not much profanity at all.
Sex: Nothing explicit, but James Bond is catnip to the ladies.
Drugs: A few drinks, a few cigarettes.
Parents’ advisory: The lightest of the Daniel Craig Bond films, it’s still violent and too sexual and too long for anybody younger than 12.
‘THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS’
Rating: R for bloody violence, strong sexuality, language and brief drug use.
What it’s about: An ex-slave blacksmith is caught up in clan wars in late 19th century China.
The kid attractor factor: Martial arts, and lots of it. And that 40-something rapper RZA.
Good lessons/ bad lessons: “A dog living in a palace is still a dog."
Violence: Constant, graphic, played for blood-gushing laughs.
Language: Shockingly modern in its profanity.
Sex: Coarse and crude, and not hard to find.
Drugs: Booze, opium.
Parents’ advisory: Yeah, they’re telling you they’re going to see “Wreck-It Ralph." Just make sure the cutlery’s hidden when they get back. Unsuitable for anyone younger than 16.
