Sex & Nudity

There are a few cuts of a man without his shirt on, but apart from this, the movie is completely free of sexual content.

Violence & Gore

Non-stop action as Cross tries to escape a manhunt on two continents. Chases on foot and motorcycle, including some intense crashes and explosions, and plenty of fight scenes. Cross takes out his opponents with handguns, rifles, and often his fists, and some scenes include unpleasant images as he brutalizes people with his bare hands. Necks are snapped, and faces are bashed in.

A scene shows a scientist shoot and kill many fellow workers in a locked office. Most of the deaths are kept off screen though we see their cries for mercy and several try to run and escape. This scene is about 5 mins long as he kills everyone but one woman in the office, before shooting himself in the head (off-screen) some blood can be seen lying on the floor. It is a very disturbing scene.

Several agents are tricked into taking a pill that will kill them. We see one man fall over dead and another woman dead on a subway with blood coming out of her nose.

A cut from the previous film shows a man being shot by a sniper in an airport. This is bloodless and very brief.

During a fight in a house a man goes into a basement and walks past a running power saw. He then sees a man lying on the floor with his arm severed. There is some blood but it is brief.

Profanity

Occasional swearing, including "sh**, b******t"and "a**" and "b****.

One use of "f***".

Some Tagalog profanities heard in the background.

You see a guy being stuck with a needle.

Many agents have to go on a special pill to remain smart and to keep focus on their mission.

All of the action scenes are very intense.
