MPAA Rated PG-13 for strong language and sequences of action and violence

Sex & Nudity

  • No sex or nudity in this film. A man hugs a woman to say thanks, nothing more.

Violence & Gore

  • A few people drown in ice.
  • Fighting occurs inside and outside the trucks. Punches to the head and face.
  • A young woman is kidnapped in a truck. She is punched to the face whilst being tied up and knocked out.
  • Hijackers attempt to take control of the ice trucks whilst in transit. They use guns, threats, fights. Some of the hijackers are ran over with the trucks. A woman in this fight sustains an injury with a tree being impaled into her chest.
  • A man is shown being squashed against a fence by a truck.


  • Very mild profanity levels. There was the one use of the F-word but it was not noticeable because of the high speed of the movie action. There were minor profanities mentioned infrequently throughout such as Sh**, Bast***, retard, and crap. A few blasphemous and racial slurs mentioned infrequently. It is entirely possible to miss the majority of the profanities and slurs due to the high pace action.
  • The movie is rated a 12a certificate and therefore profanity is at a minimum. Suitable for families.
  • Anytime there is an F-WORD, it is severe. Lots of other cussing too. And the F-WORD was very noticeable.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A man enters a clinic where he is diagnosed with PTSD and is giving pills by a doctor to deal with it. The medicine is named.
  • Two men have a glass of Whiskey in an office.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Mike's mentally ill brother is called "retarded" various times. Very sadistic
  • A young woman gets called racial names which may offend some viewers.
  • It is mentioned in the mine that it would be best to kill some minors to save the air for others and a lot of minors are destressed at this idea.
  • Rated: M (Australia) for moderate themes, violence and coarse language, mild injury detail and very mild drug references.
