What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Miss Bala is an action/crime movie wrapped around a female empowerment story. Based on the 2011 Mexican hit film, it centers on Gloria (Gina Rodriguez), a smart, courageous Mexican American woman who must work for a cartel boss to find her missing friend. While there's little blood, violence is still prevalent: Expect lots of gun battles, an execution-style murder, gun/knife use, a car bombing, and more. The film also presents a sexual culture that dehumanizes women (which the film clearly frowns upon), and there's unwanted groping and sex. Strong language includes rare uses of "f--k," plus "s--t," "bitches," and cursing in Mexican Spanish; characters also drink and use drugs. Aislynn Derbez and Anthony Mackie co-star.
