Please read our content details for this movie to help determine if it is suitable for members of your family. We also encourage you to check our full review and our movie information page.

Although only a few seconds of sensuality are seen, a major plot element of this movie involves a character and his affair with a woman. Violence is also depicted in the shootings of about a half-dozen people—most seen on screen and with some blood, along with frequent moments of physical conflict. As well, during most of the film, characters are in peril. Moderate and mild profanities are frequent, and there is one sexual hand gesture.
