Could I have watched this with my Dad? : Yes.
Could I have watched this with my Mom? : Possibly.
Language: Yes, a fair amount of f-bombs and some other miscellaneous language.
Sex/Romance: No sex, but a slight, (mainly one-sided) romance.
Violence/Gore: Yes, there is a fair amount of violence, but minimal gore. I actually took notice of how often they forcefully avoided showing any blood.
Music: It seemed to jump back and forth a bit between intense action/drama score, and light-hearted whimsical bop-alongs.
Did I feel the need to leave the lights off and sit in silence afterward? : No.
Was there a food pairing? : Yes, some leftovers that were a bit hard to eat when I couldn't ever take my eyes off the screen. (Between reading the captions and near-non-stop action, it was difficult. I would take a bite and then have to go back 10 seconds.)
Thoughts: I absolutely loved having a powerful woman in charge, especially without her being super sexualized. She is fully clothed and remains that way with no unnecessarily skimpy coverage.
I loved the universal translators.
About halfway through I was going, man, I know I recognize this guy from somewhere! So I paused the movie to look him up and ended up screeching RICHARD ARMITAGE?!?!!! THAT'S FRIKKIN RICHARD ARMITAGE?!?!!!!
There were a few small plot holes/oddities.
All of the characters were unique, fun, and had wonderful backstories.
Was this a good use of a night with the house to myself? : Yes!
In the End: 4 out of 5 stars. A fun movie with unique characters, a riveting plot, and ok yeah maybe I got a little teary-eyed, what's it to ya?
