|nudity||5/10 There is one "sex scene" where they appear to be making love but it's not graphic, they are fully dressed. Brief references. A man alludes to having to avoid being raped in prison.|
|violence||8/10 Action violence throughout the film. Contains several strong gory scenes depicting the effects of a toxic gas involving melting of the skin. The film also contains several scenes of gunshot related death and one man set on fire. A man is thrown out of a tower and is impaled on a pole. A man throws a dagger which lodges into the neck of a man. A large object crushes the head of a man and a bloody body is visible. A man is shown vomiting into a dirty sink. Several close up shots of men with bloody faces and bullet holes in the head. Several soldiers are shot dead in a showering room. Splashings of blood visible in one intense scene. Much more bloody/intense than any other Michael Bay movie, possibly excepting the Bad Boys films.|
|profanity||9/10 About 50 or 60 'f' words (some used with 'mother'), 30 uses of shit, some 'damns' and other milder profanities.|
|alcohol||2/10 Some casual drinking and smoking, non-abusive.|
|frightening||8/10 Some scenes may be intense for some viewers. Constant threat, strong violence, very emotional scenes; there is some really intense stuff.|
