What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that kids will hear be exposed to some violent and scary situations. Bodies are flung like confetti in the wake of a tidal wave; some bloody injuries and many deaths result. There are frequent sprinklings of moderately salty language and a reference to a passenger's former career as a prostitute. But the film also emphasizes strength of character, determination, courage and ingenuity in the face of calamity, too.
