Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that characters use profanity and make a few derogatory comments toward women and girls. The suspense in the film may make it too frightening for more sensitive viewers. Some of the younger characters die, occasionally graphically, and many characters carry guns. One character holds a gun to the head of two different men during a standoff. The film deals with war and violence.
