That basically sums it all up. It was perfect, The violence was more than the previous and just a bit more brutal with choking,stabbing,shooting,etc... This is without a doubt the best film you will ever watch. But then again the violence is constant and outragous with many scenes where people are brutally killed but then again that is what made the bourne films all so good. But bourne isn't that great of a role model here. He is more driven to bring the fight to them instead of just staying out. But still then again we are watching an action movie so if you say to brutal the go watch something not so violent. But back to the the point this movie made you feel like you were there. It is easily the best of the series but if you have younger audiences you might want to have them watch the bourne identity instead, this one being a bit to violent

Violent and still contains a lot of profanity and too many uses of Our Lord's name in vain and blasphemies.

This Movie is really well made it is very violent. including a choking scene with a towel. Unfortunately it has great Disappointments: I has way too many profanities, some blasphemies which 1 is more than enough and way way and to many uses of Our Lord's name in vain.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
