Sex & Nudity

PG for War Action Violence and brief language

Some passionate kissing between two characters. A man asks a woman to take her clothes off but she generally ignores the comment. No nudity.

The waitresses at the bar have low-cut necklines.

Violence & Gore

6/10 The movie is, overall, fairly violent, but nothing out of bounds for a PG-13 movie. There are a lot of scenes with nonstop explosions and gunfire. Body count is high throughout the movie--many people are killed by guns, bombs, knives, and vehicle accidents. Some of these scenes do include a fair amount of blood (on people's faces and wounds, but nothing gory).

One of the goriest scenes includes a man stabbing an ice pick through another man's arm. We graphically see the bloody wound for a few seconds. In the same scene, there's a lot of brutal physical fighting displaying mild blood.

Most scenes with a high body count show little blood. In the scenes where individuals are killed, often the wound is shown - bullet hole in forehead, back or chest; knife to the neck, etc.

One character gets shot in the center of his forehead, and the wound can be seen before he collapses.

We see a slightly unsettling wound at the back of a man's broken neck.

A man jumps out of a plane to kill himself.

A commando forces a prisoner to climb out of a castle window, obviously killing himself in the drop.


Some very weak profanity damn and hell. About 7 damns and a couple of hells.

Characters are shown drinking and smoking. There are a couple scenes held in a beer hall with a fair amount of drinking.

One scene where a character is planting explosives on top of a cable car, while it is moving from one mountain to another. This scene involves great heights and may be a bit suspenseful. One character gets a pick axe smashed into his arm, another man gets hit in the face many times with a boot where his face becomes bloody.
