OFFICIAL MPAA RATING: Rated R for strong violence and language throughout MY RECOMMENDED RATING: PG-13

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing
age 12+

Great suspenseful movie

This movie is a fast paced movie. The R is for very graphic violence and language. The age would just depend on what your own family, but we found that my 12 year old could watch it. He kept saying “I don’t know why CSM says it’s 18+.”
