Frightening & Intense Scenes


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • A man pushes a young boy out of the way of a bus, and he is hit by the bus and is thrown backwards. We see blood on the windshield and blood pool around his body, as well as grotesque gory cuts on his face. Probably the most violent moment in the film.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • SIGNIFICANT SPOILER FOLLOWS: In an intense sequence in which we know that a character will die, a man is hit by a bus in a highly realistic and graphic manner. Blood sprays onto the windshield and pools around his head as we see various pedestrians calling for help and standing over his body.
