Great movie but there is a flashback sex scene

This is a great movie. My 13 year old and I enjoyed it. It is a bit violent and intense at times. The only uncomfortable parts to watch were a flashback of a sexual scene and a couple of bloody hospital surgery scenes.

Exciting movie

I showed this to my 14-year-old who really liked it. An exciting bus crash / train wreck sequence near the beginning. A few sexy scenes between husband and wife — she leaves clothes strewn up the stairs to entice him, and some brief in-bed scenes of shoulders/camisole and up only, with loving kisses, also if I’m remembering right she is on top of him. But given that most kids this age have unfortunately seen porn already, it’s a good counter to that, being within a deeply loving relationship. Also, some violence as she is attacked and murdered. Still, I think appropriate for age 14 and up. A good amount of humor in it, too.
