No gore, sex, just suspense

The movie has a very strong female leading role character. The movie does not contain and any sex, no blood accept for a bit at the end when the evil man is shot. It does have the word "shit" a few times. I think kids could be scared by the fast paced action. It's a thriller. Our 9 year old sat through it and was on the edge of their seat but not scared.

Great role models
