Great movie has less violence than previous movie ghost protocol!

This movie is great and me and my son loved the awesome, intense stunts played by Tom Cruise! Violence wise, the movie surprisingly had less violence than the previous movie Mission impossible ghost protocol! When I watched ghost protocol with my son I knew that it would be violent so when my son turned 11 I watched with him, He loved it and I did to though I did not like the opening scene where a character gets shot by a woman like 3 times. This movie was different, it more focused on the crazy stunts and story rather than shootouts, well, it did have shootouts, but they were bloodless and surprisingly quick! I counted and compared the shootouts to ghost protocol and this movie, Ghost Protocol: 8 shootouts. Rouge Nation: 4 shootouts. So when I played this movie with my son, I felt more comfortable. It had less violence but more stunts (which I dont mind) If your son is a mature 10 yr old or 11 yr old than I think he or she could watch this. Though I did skip a scene where a woman comes out a pool in her bikini and then took of her bra and the camera pointed towards her back but you see a slight cleavage, I think you should skip this scene.

This title has:

Too much violence
