Common Sense Says
Hard crime drama is well written/acted but violent.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Drop is a crime drama taken from a story by author Dennis Lehane that stars Tom Hardy (Bane in The Dark Knight Rises). It's violent, with brutal slayings, spatters, and sprays of blood, plus an all-around sense of menace. Even a dog is found in a trash can with blood in its fur. Language is also strong, with many uses of "f--k" and "s--t." There's a romantic subplot, but sex isn't an issue; the relationship remains platonic through almost all of the movie. Much of the movie takes place in a bar, so there's a lot of social and casual drinking, though not really to excess. There's also regular cigarette smoking. This is a fairly grown-up story, so teens likely won't be too interested unless they're die-hard Hardy fans.
