THE MESSENGER: THE STORY OF JOAN OF ARC

PARENTS NOTE:
     

PROFANITY: (View Profanity)
     The F-word is spoken 11 times. The S-word is not spoken. God's name is spoken in vain 2 times. There are 12 other profanities spoken.

SEX & NUDITY:
     There is no nudity and no normal sex. There is, however, one extremely disturbing scene in which a man pins a woman to the wall and begins to tear her clothing with the intent of raping her. When she resists, he stabs her through the chest with a sword, killing her. He then proceeds to rape the corpse. To make matters worse, a young girl (the victim's sister) is watching from in hiding while all of this transpires.

VIOLENCE:
     See "Sex/Nudity" for a description of the rape/necrophelia incident. The film also includes several graphic battles that include mulitple instances of decapitations, arms & legs being hacked off, blood spurting from wounds, and various other inelegant deaths. There is a scene in which a character is riddled with arrows. In another instance, someone pulls out an arrow, causing a fountain of blood. There are also images of body-less heads and limbs, with crows feasting on the remains. Later in the film, a woman is kicked and beaten mercilessly. There is also a scene of someone burning alive.

DRUGS & ALCOHOL:
     Casual social drinking at festive events.

ACTION:
     See "Violence." Most of the action takes place during one of several major battles that are depicted. Outside of combat, however, there's not much action.

COMEDY:
     There are occasional moment of levity to lessen the tension. Some of these might cause a grin or a chuckle, but nothing stronger.

TONE OF MOVIE:
     Historical adventure based on the story of Joan of Arc.

GORE:
     This is an exceptionally gory movie. A great deal of blood, as well as decapitations and other asorted mutilations. There is also a scene with crows feasting on assorted body parts in the aftermath of a battle. See "Violence" for additional descriptions.

MISC:
     Although based on historical evidence, the Catholic Church is not treated well in this film. It is depicted as an organization rife with greed and corruption.
