Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Beyond the Reach is a cat-and-mouse thriller set in the Mojave Desert that stars Michael Douglas. It includes guns, shooting, and a dead body with bloody wounds. A character runs around in his underwear and becomes horribly sunburned, as well as having painfully wounded feet. In flashback, a family is shown dying from the desert heat. Flashbacks show the hero being intimate with his girlfriend; they appear to be naked, but no sensitive body parts are shown. Language includes sporadic uses of "s--t," "son of a bitch," and "goddamn." The bad guy sips from a bottle of what looks like whisky and drinks a martini.
