Great movie

This was probably the best tom cruise movie out there, for violence its got explosions and shooting with futuristic guns at the aliens. The main character dies over and over again but has the power of the aliens (Basically he can not die). The language is very tame, 1 single use of the s-word also a woman is called the Full Metal Bitch when she is her armor. Overall I think a mature 10 yr old or 11 yr old can watch this, its got less realistic than the mission impossibles.

This title has:

Too much violence
