Sex & Nudity


Violence & Gore

An AC-130 opens fire against several civilians and buildings, some blood is shown and bodies pile up. The entire sequence is violent.

A paramilitary group of about 100 Koreans launches air and ground assaults on the White House with a plane, missiles, mortars, grenades, guns and knives while the South Korean prime minister visits inside: a plane uses four machine guns to down two USAF fighters overhead in loud crashes with flames and smoke; a plane fires on the White House with flashing shots and loud noises, then skims the Washington Monument, which crumbles off at the top third and kills visitors on the ground with large chunks of falling debris.

Men are mowed down by machine guns.

An older woman is brutally beaten by the main villain to gain her's and the president's compliance. She is punched and kicked with bloody results and she whimpers and cries in pain. There is a helicopter commando assault of the White House, but the villains are ready for this with an advanced anti-aircraft gun that deploys and wipes out the force while the hero is unable to stop the machine in time.

Several brutal extended fist fights, the last of which is quite graphic and violent: one ends with the hero smashing a heavy vase on the villain's head, killing him; another the hero sending a knife through his enemy's throat, and the final fight ends with a sharp metal object being forcefully driven into the main villain's head (though it is quick and not much is shown) and the struggle leading up to it is disturbing and violent.


About 25 F-words and some minimal use of s**t, hell and damn. Some are audible, however, most cannot be heard or are only heard slightly due to the fast pacing of the movie.

A few times a man smokes a cigarette.

When McMillan is beaten by the korean terrorist, it gets a bit messy and violent.

The AC-130 attack sequence is fairly intense and gritty.

A knife is held to a man's neck and cut's the man's neck slightly. A small amount of blood is shown.

The above mentioned torture scene is violent.
