Be cautious

Although I know this movie is an R rating, don't understand why hellywood would you use Jesus Christ name in an inappropriate manner. This has been going on for decades. Also the common sense Media review saying that profanity is not in this movie is a lie!, depending on what people perceive as curse word. I'm a Christian so I don't believe in using his name in an unworthy manner.

This title has:

Too much violence
age 18+
The review states language isn't present. It is. The Lord's name is used with the word damn at least once. So, yes it is present and very unnecessary.

This title has:

Too much swearing
