Sex & Nudity

None

At least one kissing scene.

Possible Present Day MPAA Rating: PG-13 for violence and brief strong language

Violence & Gore

-A man walks into a room and shoots a man in the head (blood sprays on the wall not graphic) and shoots another man in the side (blood pours out of the wound not graphic).

-A group of men take over an airplane and shoot a lot of innocent people (some blood is visible). -A man enters the cockpit shoots one pilot in the head and shoots the other man in the shoulder (blood pours not graphic). -A lot other people are shot with blood visible.

-A man shoots a hostage in the head (blood spurts for a brief second not graphic). Also, a character's hands are tied and another man beats him not that bad.

-A man's neck is snapped not graphic.

-A man takes a gun to the woman's head and later we hear a gunshot over a loudspeaker inside the plane.

-A plane with a man (at the door) crashed into the sea, dividing into a half.

-Some of the men being sucked out in the plane.

Profanity

Profanity consists of 2 F-words, God's and Jesus's names are misused 20 times and other profanities (SOB, sh*t, h*ll, D*mn and *ss) are used moderately throughout.

A few people smoke. People hold beers and drinks, but none is consummed.

From the hijacking to the end of the movie is intense and the hijackers (Gary Oldman in particular) can be very frightening.

In comparison this is a relatively mild R-Rated film however the R-Rating is definitely justified as the film is very violent and the execution and torture scenes are particularly intense.
