Occasionally violent sequel emphasizes love over status.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this sequel to the classic Australian western The Man from Snowy River includes several violent sequences and some language that may be too intense for younger elementary-aged kids. There's more violence than in most PG-rated movies: a horse tramples a man to death; a young man is beat up; a rich man pays a gang to harass the main character, and two men fight each other with a sword and then their fists. The salty language features several insults like "mongrel," "rich bastard," and the like. The romance highlighted in the original builds into a live-in relationship that bucks traditional standards and shows that marriage should be based on mutual love and respect, not convenience or class.
