Current films are reviewed each week to provide parents a guide to decide what may be appropriate to younger viewers.
Rating: PG-13 for zombie violence and some language
What it's about: A self-aware young zombie feels a stirring of humanity when he spies a gorgeous blonde.
The kid attractor factor: It's a zombie "Twilight," with a few more laughs.
Good lessons, bad lessons: Love is what makes us human.
Violence: Lots and lots zombie shootings, brain-munching, etc.
Language: A scattering of teen-appropriate profanity.
Sex: None, but there is flirtation.
Parents advisory: It has zombie movie gore, but in light doses OK for ages 10-and-up.
BULLET TO THE HEAD
Rating: R for strong violence, bloody images, language, some nudity and brief drug use
What it's about: The kid attractor factor: Stallone, Jason Momoa, and a guy your parents once thought was cool Christian Slater.
Good lessons, bad lessons: "Never trust anyone who doesn't care enough about money."
Violence: Explicit and plentiful. Language: Profane, comically so.
Sex: Gratuitous nudity.
Drugs: Cocaine and bourbon.
Parents advisory: An old-school buddy picture that's heavy on the violence, suitable for 15-and-up.
