SEX/NUDITY 2 - Sexual innuendo and a couple of kisses. A woman in shorts and
a tiny tank top gets into bed with a man and kisses him.
VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - We see a boy walking down the middle of a road, see blood
dripping on his shoes and pants, then see his extremely bloody, charred hand and arm; a
car nearly hits him (we learn he had been injured while playing with fireworks). A mostly
slow-motion shootout scene during which a young boy and several adults are killed (we see
lots of blood spray from the wounds as people are shot and we see a few bloody corpses); a
woman holding up her bloody hands is shot by a woman holding a baby. We see a building
explode, knocking several people down; twice, we see photographs and news footage of a
building destroyed by a bomb and several slightly blurry shots of corpses (some bloody)
and a very bloody-faced person. Some threatening with guns. Lots of reckless driving and a
few car crashes; we see the aftermath of one accident and learn that someone was killed. A
man holds another against a wall and a man throws another against a car and drags him into
a room. Two men punch and kick each other; a man is repeatedly punched in the nose until
it gets very bloody and then his chest is stepped on. We see a couple of people with blood
on their faces and hands.
PROFANITY 5 - Four F-words, several scatological references, many mild
obscenities and one insult. [profanity glossary]
DISCUSSION TOPICS - Domestic terrorism, death of a loved one, murder, the FBI,
manipulation, betrayal, deceit, paranoia.
MESSAGE - People aren't always who or what they claim to be; one
person's acts of terrorism could really be the work of many.
