Characters who are injured during the attacks are also covered in blood. Another man is cut in half by machine gun fire (brief but very visible).

Apart from the violence, there are also brief scenes of gore including a scene depicting the hands of a militant being blown off after setting off an explosive by accident. He walks around with part of his forearm and wrist detached from his body, spraying blood.

Other scenes include a soldier who is injured at his thighs being brought into a room for first aid, when he is laid down on the table, a fleeting shot of the gash can be seen, followed by some blood spurting from the wound

The film contains utterances of strong expletives such as 'motherf**ker' and 'f**k'. 20+ across its near 2 1/2 hour runtime

Milder language such as the expletives 'sh*t', 'damn', 'b*tch' and 'hell' are also uttered by the characters during various conversations

This is an action-war drama revolving around the events leading up to an attack at a US diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, involving a group of ex-soldiers who are stationed there to protect CIA agents and later serve as the backup security team for the US ambassador, Christopher Stevens.
