Violence & Gore

  • The main character is shot and blood is seen on his leg and a woman's hand after she touches it.
  • A man flies through the air after a vehicular accident, which is implied to have killed him.
  • Non-stop action as Cross tries to escape a manhunt on two continents. Chases on foot and motorcycle, including some intense crashes and explosions, and plenty of fight scenes. Cross takes out his opponents with handguns, rifles, and often his fists, and some scenes include unpleasant images as he brutalizes people with his bare hands. Necks are snapped, and faces are bashed in.
  • A scene shows a scientist shoot and kill many fellow workers in a locked office. Most of the deaths are kept offscreen though we see their cries for mercy and several try to run and escape. This scene is about 5 mins long as he kills everyone but one woman in the office, before shooting himself in the head (offscreen) some blood can be seen lying on the floor. It is a very disturbing scene.
  • Several agents are tricked into taking a pill that will kill them. We see one man fall over dead and another woman dead on a subway with blood coming out of her nose.
  • A cut from the previous film shows a man being shot by a sniper in an airport. This is bloodless and very brief.
