3/10 Not prevalent, nor is it overly offensive.

A female character flirts with a man throughout the movie.

A woman brings two men to her house for safety and they walk in on her sister in her nightgown; it is not explicit, nor does it show much skin, but it is slightly sexual as she winks at one of the men.

A dwarf female singing about love in a bar. She dances provocatively whist singing.

A male and a female are seen kissing passionately.

other people are seen kissing throughout the movie.

A man hugs a boy and caresses his face, though it is in more of a fatherly way, it still makes the character seem creepy, though.

6/10 probably the most violent movie in the Harry Potter universe except maybe the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (2011) Violence is bloodless and not very graphic, though.

Many scenes of destruction are seen in the movie and there is a higher body count in this movie than many other Pg-13 movies, although most deaths are just implied and not seen in detail.

A boy is beat by his mother with his own belt and you later see his scarred hand, implying that the woman has beat him often.

A woman almost dies at one point in a emotional scene.

A man explains how he tried to save an eight year old girl but failed; he is very sad and emotional about it.

A boy is punched in the face by his father figure in order to make him stop crying. He does, but the character who punched him is shown as very mean and evil, so it is not shown in a good way.

A lot of spellcasting and intense scenes with bodies flying across a room after being stunned or blasted with spells that would not kill.

A man is lifted up into the air and slammed down onto the floor, his face is shown to be withered and dried.

A woman is swallowed by a black cloud and her face is later shown to be shriveled and wrinkled.

At one point a man is bitten by a beast and sustains a bleeding neck wound.

A dark creature wreaks havoc throughout a city, killing many people. More intense than violent.

2/10

A couple of utterances of the word 'bugger'

3 Uses of "What the H**l"

3/10 Alcohol is present, but it is not a major factor of the movie. Some of it is shown with humorous effects.

The main characters enter a speakeasy where there are numerous shots of patrons drinking and smoking, usually in the background.

One of main characters orders a beer and drinks a few shots of 'giggle water, which by the name, of course, makes you giggle. It is used as a humor device.

9/10 A very emotionally charged movie with many intense scenes and scenes dealing with physical and mental abuse.

SPOILERS! there is one moment where newt and tina are almost killed with dark magic its quite sad and scary

A man is attacked by magical creatures after accidentally opening a suitcase holding them.

Many scenes with shooting and destruction that end up being very intense and scary; some young children may be scared of the beasts throughout the movie.

One character is very creepy and mean.

A teenage boy is shown with bloody hands after being beat for being home late; it is stated that his adopted mother adopted many children and beat them all continuously. It is very sad and emotional.

A young man talks about how he saw a young girl die because he could not save her and he feels very guilty for it.

A man is attacked by a troubled boy and almost killed. He is shocked when the boy attacks him because he thought the boy was his friend.

A man finds a boy crying after the boy killed his mother. He punches the boy in the mouth to make him shut up.

It is discussed that a young woman attacked another woman because the other woman beat her children for no reason.

A character is shown as torn and broken and is taken advantage of (Not sexually) by an older man, who acts as a father figure in the young character's life. When the older man betrays the young character, it is very sad.

A young man cries and shakes after his mother dies in front of him.

A young man protects his little sister and is almost beat by his mother after doing so.

There are many scenes of emotional context in this film and I, personally (I am not ashamed to say it), cried three (3) separate times throughout the last 30 minutes of the film. That's like once every ten minutes for all y'all who can't do math... yah... every ten minutes; my eyes would finally get dry and then I'd start crying all over again. BRING TISSUES (;

A Young boy is shot multiple times as he cries and shakes. It is unknown whether or not he survives.

A man says goodbye to his only three friends, knowing that he'll never remember them; it is emotional and sad.

Another goodbye scene in the movie is emotional, yet is less so because it is sprinkled with some humor.

This movie deals with some sad, emotional, intense subjects, including animal cruelty, being treated badly, and abuse, but it is all done in a mature fashion and is done very well. It is a sad movie, but many young children will probably not understand the more emotional parts of the movie. The biggest worry for young children is that they may be scared by some of the creatures throughout the movie, including the bad guy in the end.

Rated PG-13 for some fantasy action violence
