Satanic depictions and dealings with supernatural and metaphysical beings from Hell are the backbone of this film. Cage’s character is essentially a superhero who is unwittingly conscripted to help prevent the overthrow of the Devil by his even more evil son Blackheart. Amazing special effects create multiple scenes of flaming skeletons, and immortal spiritual beings who are shot, burned, beaten and crushed. These visuals (many of which are intended to make you “jump”) will undoubtedly frighten children. Violence ensues on Earth as well, with people killed and property destroyed. Language includes infrequent mild profanities and one use of a scatological term, while terms of Christian deity are used in a blasphemous manner several times.
