THE MONUMENTS MEN is a drama about a platoon charged with rescuing works of art during World War II. It is rated 12A for moderate violence, bloody injury detail and scenes of smoking.
The moderate violence occurs mainly in two scenes. The first is when a man shoots at a German soldier inside a church and is then shot himself. Although there is no detail of the bullet impact, there is blood on his clothing and on a letter that he was holding at the time. In a later scene, one of the main characters is shot in the stomach after getting caught in a fire-fight. Again, the impact occurs off-screen, but there is blood on his stomach and on his and his comrade's hands as they try to stop the bleeding. Some blood is also seen on the bodies and clothing of injured soldiers in field hospitals and on those treating them.
Smoking occurs throughout the film, with a non-smoking character encouraged to smoke in one scene.
The film also contains some mild bad language, including uses of the terms 'shit' and 'screw'.
No-one younger than 12 may see a 12A film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult. No-one younger than 12 may rent or buy a 12 rated video or DVD.
