What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Miss Bala is a crime thriller starring Gina Rodriguez that's based on the same-named Spanish-language film from Mexico. After witnessing a gang massacre in Tijuana, Gloria (Rodriguez) is forced into a life of crime on the Mexico-USA border in order to save those she loves. Things get even more dangerous when she's offered an opportunity to be a double agent and must betray a charismatic crime lord. Expect tons of violence, including gunfire, explosions, and hand-to-hand combat, as well as sexual references and some swearing. This looks best for mature teens.
