A man shaves his chest and pubic region (we see his bare legs and back, but nothing explicit).

We see a poster of women wearing low-cut tops that reveal cleavage.


A man is slashed on the side of the neck, on his carotid artery; blood spurts and gushes from the wound, and people around him scream and panic.

A man is stabbed in the stomach (we hear a groan and yelling).

A woman is held by a man, she screams and struggles, the man kills her with a knife (off-screen) and we hear her scream turn to a moan and then she is silent.

Several men charge toward another man, they knock him down to the ground, beat him repeatedly, and we see blood on his shirt and it is implied that he has been beaten to death.

A man attacks another man, holds him around the head and throat and twists, breaking his neck.

A man struggles with another man and one is killed (presumably stabbed because we see his bloody shirt later).

Two dead bodies are dragged out of the cockpit of a plane and we see their blood-soaked shirts.

Planes crash resulting in the deaths of many on the planes and in the buildings that were hit.

TV news reports show two planes being flown into the World Trade Center towers (there are large explosions and clouds of black smoke).

TV news reports show the Pentagon being struck by a plane and smoke billowing from the building.

A man shakes the plane violently but the passengers manage to enter the cockpit; however, as they attempt to gain control, the plane plummets into an upside down nosedive. The screen cuts to black as the plane crashes into field. The epilogue states that all Flight 93 passengers died in the crash.


10 uses of "f***," 17 of "oh my G**," 11 of "s***," 5 of "J**** C*****," 5 of "h***," 4 of "G**d***," 4 of "J****," 2 of "oh J****," 2 of "d***," 1 of "crap," 1 of "oh G**" and 1 of "son of a b****."


A few people are shown drinking from cups (it's unclear whether it is alcohol or another liquid).


The entire film is incredibly intense and moderately disturbing. One of the most emotionally intense films ever made.

Moments leading up to the point where the terrorists reveal their identities are extremely tense. Following this, all scenes on board the aircraft are among the most harrowing which one could witness on film and they are incredibly realistic.

The images of the 9/11 attacks are included also in a moderately disturbing manner.

24/50 - Recommended for 13 and over.

Rated R for language, and some intense sequences of terror and violence (appeal planned)
