The Consultant Age Rating Parents Guide
Let’s take a look at what parents need to know before letting their young children watch The Consutant.
Language: the Consultant contains strong language, with profanity used throughout. Stronger words include f*ck, sh*t, a**, c*ck sucker, d*mn, and sexual phrases such as “busting a nut.”
Mature Content: Other than the language mentioned above, the other big lookout in the series is the violent content. Violent scenes include characters wielding guns, a scene that shows an adolescent shooting another character in the head, thieves breaking in and kidnapping and hitting characters, and body parts being cut and injured. There is also some sexual content that parents need to be made aware of, including many sexual references and an oral sex act being shown multiple times. While there are no nude scenes to speak of, there is a statue that is shown multiple times of a naked male. Characters consume alcohol and abuse drugs.
Prime Video’s The Consultant season 1 contains eight episodes, with each episode running around 30 minutes long. So, the series is extremely binge-worthy and easy to watch. The show itself is a bit strange and has been compared to other AppleTV+ series like Severance mixed with Servant. It will pull you in from the get-go with its intriguing premises and keep you there until the very end, as it is filled with twists and turns throughout. It focuses on a mobile game company called CompWare after the CEO dies in a horrifying circumstance. A consultant shows up and takes charge of the office and takes some daunting steps to increase productivity.
The Consultant includes a strong cast, with Christoph Waltz playing Regus, the consultant. Waltz executed the role with perfection, as his performance is dark, eerie, spine-chilling, and at times, even humorous. The entire plot centers around the fact that Regus is sort of a mystery being, unbelievably so at times, which Waltz brings with him. His presence on screen is powerful, and all attention is focused on him, even in scenes he shares with his co-stars. This isn’t to say his co-stars do a bad job, per se. Each was strong in their roles and gave authentic and genuine performances. As the story progresses, so does each character, and their personalities begin to reveal themselves like layers of an onion. It is a joy to watch the entire cast mesh so well together, producing a successful series such as this.
The Consultant works best the less viewers know going in, as the intrigue only grows as the story, twists and turns begin to unfold. So in an attempt to keep this mystery, I will not devulge too much about the series as not to spoil it. Just know that if what you have read already has sparked some intrigue, then do yourself a favor and invest some time in this series, you will not be disappointed.
