Decent film, not as good as I remember as a teenager

Overall I'd say it is ok for families with kids 12 onwards but has more violence than you think.

Netflix rating can't be right!

I loved this film growing up! No idea how old I was when I was allowed to watch it though and certainly I must have been at least high school age. I would really hate for my daughter to learn about rape, assault and torture at the age of 13 through these visuals, so Netflix, your rating of 13+ can't be right! There are some really sensitive and shocking parts that I forgot about before screening this for my older girl! Thank heavens I did! It's mature, too mature for 13 year olds ...

This title has:

Too much violence
