One brief scene in which a man's genitals are seen.

Numerous shootings, although mostly bloodless.

One brief but very graphic torture scene. A group of soldiers watch as electro shock torture is demonstrated on a live male test subject. The man is shown receiving electro shock on various parts of his body including his penis.

Characters drink and smoke in a manner usual for the time frame in which the movie is set.

The torture scene mentioned under "violence & gore" is very disturbing and intense.

As the movie revolves around a politically motivated kidnapping, and the kidnappers threaten to kill their hostages if their demands are not met, the mood is tense throughout.

Suggested MPAA Rating: Rated R for violence including torture and brief graphic nudity.
