Do not take your teenagers to see this film - it is very violent and disturbing.  In my view it should have an 18 rating.  I was shocked by the level of violence, amount of close up shots of murdered people and the distrbing content matter.  Anyone agree ?

Kate, I absolutely agree. We before it was over. One of the scenes I saw is still bothering me and I understand the film got worse later on. I’ve been wondering if I’m out of touch as very few reviews mention this aspect.
