Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

None: a love triangle is a central part of the film but no sex is shown or implied.

Violence throughout including executions by firing squad (shown briefly), lots of gun battles, a car bomb explodes although there is no injury detail. A man is strung up and interrogated (very brief). A man is brutally beaten but this is obscured by a glass partition. A man is shot in the head and blood spurts (again, very brief). Soldiers leap from a burning vehicle in flames. Overall, despite the subject matter most of the violence is intense but not very graphic and very little blood.

Profanity throughout including over 25 uses of 'fuck': not as excessive as some films of a similar nature.

Characters smoke regularly throughout the film; drinking in a few scenes including a scene set in a pub.

The film is intense throughout; some viewers might find the executions, beatings and interrogation scenes upsetting.

Rated R for violence and language
