Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • In the sequence with the family that is being held hostage, while never verbalized, it could be implied that there may have been a sexual component to the crimes inflicted on the mother and children, which is very disturbing.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Through a series of flashbacks, it is revealed that Mr. Glass was responsible for multiple terrorist attacks mentioned throughout the film, all resulting in copious amounts of fatalities.
