Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Jason Statham and Ben Foster turn in enjoyable performances, but this superficial remake betrays them with mind-numbing violence and action thriller cliches.

Common Sense Says
Exceedingly violent action remake also has sex, drinking.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this remake of a 1972 hit man action-drama is extraordinarily violent, with dozens of shootings, beatings, stabbings, stranglings, and killings, with lots of blood. Language is strong (including many uses of "f--k" and "s--t"), and there are some pretty graphic sexual situations (with breast/buttock nudity). One character drinks hard liquor and smokes incessantly (other, minor characters are drug dealers and junkies). The characters have few redeeming or admirable qualities, and there are few consequences for their destructive actions.
