In this fictional story, a terrorist attack on a group of Western citizens living in Saudi Arabia has inflamed Americans, who call for an FBI investigation.

This US R-rated film contains nearly continuous acts of violence, committed by both the terrorists and the movie’s “heroes,” such as torture, the deaths of many innocent people (including children and women), massive explosions and vehicle accidents (many depict explicit bloody details). When bullets and bombs aren’t exploding, very tense situations put characters in peril and awaiting the next onslaught of terror. Frequent use of sexual expletives as well as many other moderate and mild profanities are used. Derogatory remarks about Arabs are heard along with one negative comment about French Canadians. Sexual content consists of a few moments of mild innuendo and a scene where a man describes a caesarian birth to an elementary school class.
