Leonardo Di Caprio and Academy Award winner Russell Crowe star in director Ridley Scott's adaptation of the best-selling post-9/11 espionage thriller. When idealistic CIA agent Roger Ferris (Di Caprio --The Departed, Blood Diamond) is stationed in Jordan after being wounded in Iraq, he dedicates his life to stopping further attacks by Al Qaeda. Following a plan that the British employed successfully against the Nazis, Ferris plants the suspicion among the terrorists that their leaders are collaborating with the Americans. But as the stakes rise and Ferris finds himself in the cross hairs, the plot he starts spirals into an outcome he could never have foreseen.

Common Sense Says
Violent spy thriller is for adults only.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this gripping-though-inconsistent spy/terrorism thriller is quite violent -- almost tenaciously so. There's torture, gunfights, and explosions, as well as a fair number of close-ups of bloody injuries and corpses. People are sacrificed regardless of their loyalties, or even their actual involvement in terror activities. There's also some smoking and drinking and plenty of swearing (including "f--k"), though no real sexual content of note.

A Lot or A Little?
