Think twice before letting your young kids watch this movie

Although I think this movie is okay, it's still definately not appropriate for kids under 13. It has excessive violence as well as strong language that young kids should not hear.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
not rated for age

Very good.... but very violent

This movie was really good. It became a little annoying after watching the same scence like 8 times from different points of views. I heard many people in the movie theather groan when they would go to another point of view. All in all this movie was violent, not for children under 13. But it was a very true statement and with all of the fear of a terrorist attack, this movie rings true.
