This movie is great for preteens, younger is pushing it.

This movie was great, but at the same time quite disappointing. I defiantly expected more, due to Liam Neeson’s last thriller being Taken which was BRILLIANT. When I looked at the common sense review I was a little sceptical on the maturity side of this movie, so I decided to watch this movie first before watching the movie with my son who’s 12. This movie has some standard Liam Neeson action, some fistfights, car chases, explosions. I was though surprised with how little the gun fights were. This movie has defiantly been toned down from taken to fit the PG-13 limits. Violence: 2 car chases, several fistfights, the main character is in a car crash. Language: 3 s-words 4 damns 1 bitch 1 middle finger 1 Jesus Christ Sexual Content: There is a flashback scene where you see liam Neeson kissing his wife in a shower, no nudity. (I highly recommend skipping this scene, most parent reviews I see is saying the same) Overall I personally think that a mature 11 yr old or 12 can watch this the violence is not bad but skip the flashbacks scene.

Good movie unnecessary sexual scenes

Shower scenes, kissing, moaning, naked back shown. Braless T-shirt shows nipples. Sounds of neighbors having sex.
