How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

There are three levels of morality in this film: Official police, bad guys who are the film’s heroes, and real bad guys. How does the script use empathy to align our feelings toward one of these groups? What nationality are most of the characters we are supposed to like? What nationality is the bad guy? How do the U.S. and Brazilian police compare?

What stunts in this movie do you think are physically impossible? Does this add or take away from the overall entertainment experience?
