this gripping, thrilling, and overall awesome war movie mixes suspense with a complicated storyline, which may be to convaluted for younger tweens. this WWII drama has little in the way of violence. it does include a scene of planes bombing a town and buildings burning in the aftermath. other violent scenes include massive explosions on boats and submarines, bodies piled high in mass graves, and fist-fighting. the REAL reason this film got an R rating was of the 4 F bombs and a scene of sex, which only shows bare backsides. a man is nakes in a scene, but we don't see his lower area.
