Sexy, Sex and Nude Scenes
About 5-10 minutes are devoted to a sequence where women are recruited as "sexual companions" for astronauts. Non-graphic in imagery and dialogue (mostly standard athletics training), but light talk about virginity and implying about "what the job entails".
There is a scene which lasts for about 5 seconds of a man and woman having sex viewed from the side on a desk. The woman's left breast is clearly visible although the scene is in dim lighting.
There is a brief scene of a man completely naked from the side--penis partially visible but flaccid, at around the 40-minute mark for around 3 seconds.
The main character is a woman who is forced to undergo gender reassignment surgery after complications from childbirth.
The plotline involves an intersexed character impregnation themself.
Violent and Bloody Scenes
Blood from explosions, you see a person with a burned off/melted face from an explosion.
One man gets shot and blood is seen.
Some tame body scars
Scary and Disturbing Scenes
4/10 The face burning scene isn't terribly graphic but a little scary. Some of the themes and questions raised by the implications of the film (as well as having to explain the twists and turns) might confuse or "freak out" younger kids.
Total: 23/50. Recommended for 13-14+
I feel like sometimes great movies don't get enough recognition, films like Prisoners, Enemy, or Predestination.
This film impacted me heavily, and it kept me thinking and thinking about it for a week after I saw it. Ethan Hawke gave a great performance, which keeps me wondering why he ever agreed to do "The Purge", but the real standout is Sarah Snook, who is breathtaking in her role.
One of the best things about this film was that when I thought it was going in one direction, it took a hard right hand turn. Not many movies make me doubt myself like that. The direction was clean and solid, the cinematography was immaculate, and the special and visual effects were outstanding. Everything about the look of the film was perfect.
My only complaints are that the movie's first act was a little slow. However, as the film progresses into the second and third act, the long first act is absolutely necessary. If it was a little shorter, it would've worked so well.
Confusing? Yes. Enjoyable? Big time.
If you can see Predestination, definitely do so. 8/10
