A man says he has his "hand up her skirt and I'm going for the-" before he is cut off. He is talking about decrypting data.

Another man mentions that a nice car is a way to get "pussy," and he mentions that "the 'vette gets 'em wet." He then describes a woman, talking about her getting hot, her "thighs steam," and says she has a great body, with good titties and an ass like a "10-year old boy", and that she could suck-start a leafblower.

A woman strips down to her underwear in front a man. A lot of cleavage is shown as well as her buttocks and her genitals are barely covered. She then performs a very seductive dance for the man which lasts several minutes.

In the first scene, there is a chase scene. During this, there are multiple people shot during this chase with little to no blood present.

Several shootings through the films.

A man grabs a doctor as a human shield and throws a scalpel at a guard, killing him. He then breaks the doctors neck.

Later on, the same man chimneys upside down a rope and snaps the neck of a guard quickly.

A woman drops an uzi who falls down stairs and shoots. Several people are shot during this scene.

There is a big shootout at the base where the man and woman are being held hostage. A big amount of people are shot with a little blood.

The villain is killed when he hangs on a jet piloted by the protagonist who turns the jet sideways, making the villain get stuck on a missile. The protagonist then fires the missile, sending the villain flying into a helicopter, killing him with a huge explosion.

3 F-words, some sh*ts, a few d*cks, & tons of mild/other language.

Drink and smokes are consumed in the picture

A young girl is stuck on a high-up crane, then a moving jet aircraft. Some scenes in this sequence are quite intense.

A girl is taken hostage by terrorists.

The main reason for the R rating is most likely the brief strong language. Many PG-13 films today are more violent. If Cameron had censored 3 of the 4 F-Bombs this easily would have passed with a PG-13.

Overal 27/50.

Rated R for a lot of action/violence and some language
