Brief kissing.

The ice cream van blows up killing the U.S. Ambassador & his son, numerous innocent children, and one guard nearby in an opening scene as a terrorist walks away from the van. A child is briefly seen on fire afterwards.

The two main themes involve a CIA operative getting kidnapped and the kidnappers then conspiring to commit terrorist acts in The USA.

The female CIA agent is shown bruised and bloody up close several times during a torture/interrogation. No on screen torture is seen though her screams are heard.

An unarmed man is unsuspectedly shot in the head. This is off screen, though a high amount of blood splatters on the wall behind. A woman with him is then attacked by several violent punches that leave her unconscious.

One character takes a bullet to his eye,and is later shown with an eyepatch.

Several scenes with graphic shoot outs, including soldiers and terrorist getting killed graphically onscreen (limbs blown off, head-shots, etc)

A car is blown up by a rocket in slow motion. Everyone inside is consumed by the blast.

One character gets blown up by throwing himself on a grenade.

A woman kills herself by detonating a suicide vest in an attempt to kill a group of soldiers.

10 f-words. About 10 s-words. The name of Jesus is used as an expletive on two or three occasions. We also hear "a," "dn" and "h." There is a crude reference to testicles.

Characters drink and smoke

Some of the terrorists are involved with drug dealing.

A scene involving torturing a CIA agent and children dying at the hands of a suicide bomber may upset some viewers.

Rated R for strong violence including some torture, and for language
