|FPB Report (SA)|
|Language||Frequent and strong in impact language is consistent throughout. It is partly the contect of the mafia bosses, drug cartel lifestyle, and used in a demeaning manner. It is also used as a manner of speech with no consequences. This is not suitable for children who may feel that it is a glorifed way of speech and try to emulate it. |
|Nudity||Infrequent and Low impact Nudity is recognised and noted in this production. It is isolated and linked to the SRA consumer element and therefore not acceptable for younger children as it may pre-expose them to adult sexually related activities. |
|Violence||Fairly Frequent and Moderate Violence is treated sensitively and is necessary for plot and character develpment withint the cartel gang genre. This production does not overload Violence, the action is more character driven, but it is nevertheless not suitable for younger children as there is blood-letting and abuse and they might find it disturbing, distressing and inappropriate for them. |
|Prejudice||Fairly Frequent and Moderate in impact. Prejudice is shown in white and black realities with certain terminology used. It is treated sensitively; it is seen in class distinction with corrupt and abusive people in power treating those underneath them with impunity; and it is shown with ageist realities, how the elders are treated in society by some. This is not suitable for children who may try to emulate it as these qualities are not appropriate in a tolerant society. |
|Drug abuse||None (sic)|
|Comments||Needless to say that this film involves gang violence, mafia bosses, a dysfunctional family, disgruntled ex-spouses, but depicted in a sensitive, colourful, interesting way which is specific to Clint Eastwood's style of direction. This has a Moderate impact with some elements having a strong impact and is not suitable for children who are impressionable and might see some of these elements as being 'cool' or elements that they might wish to try and emulate. |
