suspenseful thriller has mild violence but strong language

this gripping, tense, and well acted thriller isn't the kind of action movie you would see. it is rather a thriller/suspense movie that excels in holding the tension high. but some of the violence, albeit brief, maybe to bloody for younger kids. the violence is very mild, but sometimes gets brutal. people are shot, have their necks snapped, nearly suffocated, beaten, and one falls from a tall building. there is also some very strong language, with uses of f**k, motherf**ker, s**t, god**n, b***h.

Great, over the top, cheesy (in all the right ways) 90's action movie. Lots of fun.

Might be a bit violent for younger viewers but take away the tomato sauce blood and its fine. There may also be a couple of hints at other slightly inappropriate things apart from violence but younger viewers probably won't understand it anyway. Other than that its just the language that parents need to look out for. This is a fun movie for everyone.

Excellent Eastwood thriller has some brutal/shocking violence.

Violence includes neck-breaking, fist fights and some bloody shootings. The scene in which two women get their necks broken is particularly brutal (though not very bloody) and very shocking. Language includes the F-word and other less extreme words. Two characters nearly have sex, but are interrupted. Clint Eastwood's character is very determined and resilient, and willing to sacrifice himself for the greater good.
