Common Sense Says
An explosive, violent, mile-a-minute actioner.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that there are explosions, violent shoot-outs, fistfight scenes, and gruesome scenes of chemical burns. Language should also be noted as many characters curse throughout the film. There is one sex scene. The "R" rating is appropriate; the movie is way too intense and violent for kids.
