2 brief kisses.

A women is shown in a long towel (down to her knees) and moves across the room to pick things up in one brief scene. In a flashback scene the couple are seen in bed together. You only see the woman's bare shoulders and part of the man's chest/back, everything else is covered with the bed sheets. At the end of that scene the man moves and leans over top of the woman to kiss, then the scene is cut.

The movie is about a terrorist plot in the aftermath of 9/11 to collapse the U.S. economy. The violence in this movie is more amped-up than other Jack Ryan movies, since this one is modern. The violence is relentless with many gun, fist, and knife fights throughout. However it is not that much more graphic than a Bourne or Bond movie. Some blood is seen, but this is only from gunshot wounds, and in one scene, a man hits another man across the face with brass knuckles.

In the introductory scene, Jack is seen in a helicopter. The enemy fires a missile at the helicopter, sending it crashing. He is later seen with a hideously burnt face and we learn that he has almost broken his spine (it is fixed)

A woman is slapped across the face and gets tortured briefly.

2 clear uses of the F-word. 'Shit' is also used on a few occasions Some uses of asshole, bitch, damn, hell Jesus used in a non-respectful manner

One man sticks himself with a syringe, however this is assumed to be prescription for his advanced cirrhosis.

In a dinner scene alcohol is consumed. Jack Ryan gets 'drunk' in order to complete a mission. He offers prescription drugs to a man, and then pretends to take them himself but instead drops them into his lap.

A missile hits a helicopter, and the camera shows footage of the inside of the helicopter as it happens. Later, one of the survivors is seen bloody and injured in a care unit.

A man stabs a man in the throat, it is sudden.

Rated PG-13 for sequences of violence and intense action, and brief strong language
