The first time I saw this movie was when I was in 8th grade in my history class, AND I LOVED IT! It's a great war movie, but like all other war movies, there's plenty of violence, most of them are plane on plane violence. But it's a great movie for kids ages 13 and older who also like history!

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
