age 17+

Adult themed not great for young family viewing but a good take on what consequences your actions will have when you do the wrong thing. Movie drags a lot

This movie is definitely not for children and has partial nude homosexual scene. Although some of the desert scenes were beautiful the movie was boring and dragged on. Most of the characters got what was coming to them! Really disappointed in this movie. Racial slurs.

This title has:

Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
