Violence: A foreign country has invaded America and the story is following freedom fighters. That means there is a lot of shooting guns and hand-to-hand combat. There are moments of torture, and revenge is a big theme in this film. Some bodies are shown. People are held in a prison camp. There are many explosions.
Language: War dominates the theme and as a result there is some profanity interspersed in the dialogue of the film. Most of the language is used in frustration or anger. Nothing near the language that can be used in an R-rated film.
Alcohol: A brother offers a beer to his younger brother
This film is a remake of the 1984 version starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. (pre “Dirty Dancing”). The characters are the same in both films but the enemies are not. This time it is North Korea that has attacked. With the violence and the themes, this film is for a 14-plus audience. Definitely a popcorn movie, a film to go see when you’ve seen everything else but still want to go to the movies.
