Alcohol/Drugs Mild  
QUICK TAKE: Suspense/Thriller/Horror: A research team must contend with a pack of genetically altered, ultra intelligent sharks that have invaded their sinking research station.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT? If they liked "Jaws," or are fans of such movies and/or someone in the cast, it's a good bet -- although this one seems most attractive to male teens.

WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R For graphic shark attacks, and for language.

OUR WORD TO PARENTS: Here's a quick look at the content found in this R rated suspense/thriller. Being a film about people attacked by sharks, it should come as little surprise that it's filled with many suspenseful scenes as well as those featuring rather bloody and gruesome deaths of characters being eaten or shredded by such creatures.

Profanity is heavy due to at least 4 uses of the "f" word, while other profanities and colorful phrases are also present. Some women are briefly seen in skimpy bikinis or underwear, and a few are seen making out with young men. A bit of drinking and smoking is also present.

Due to the severity of the shark attacks and the possibility that they and other related scenes could induce nightmares in kids (or prevent them from getting anywhere near any standing water), we suggest that you take a closer look at the listed content should you still be concerned about its appropriateness for anyone in your home.
