Points for Parents: “The Bourne Legacy”
- Violence/danger: There are many action sequences that rely heavily on violence. This is a story about a trained killer, and his instinct is to act. The violence includes hand-to-hand combat, guns and a missile or two. This is a chase film, so the main characters are almost always in peril and always looking over their shoulders.
- Language/profanity: A few “swears” are thrown out during the film, mostly by those who are angered by a situation. There are no characters that just use profanity to be noticed.
- Nudity: There is no nudity or sensuality. In fact, the two main characters don’t even kiss, although there is a connection between them.
