U23D - too intense for old people?

Hey guys. I'm going to go see it two weekends from now at the IMAX with my brothers (it'll be my third time seeing it by then) and my grandparents want to come too. They're in their 70s. Do you think it's too intense?

they can handle the drama but the action scenes are a little violent. bring a colastomy bag.

Too much blood spattering everywhere.

My boss wanted to know if it would be appropriate for her kids (she knows how Bono can let loose with some f-bombs now and again), and was thrilled by my report that she'd be fine to take them.

Well I just read on CNN that the shaky camera is making people feel nauseous and having to leave the theatre.









Oh wait, that's Cloverfield.

I think we're all forgetting another important question here:

Is it too rad for mom and dad?

Does U2 smother the audience in boiling coffee and cream ala Deathklok?

Or he'd give everyone a terrible case of crabs.
