Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this action thriller from the producers of Transformers -- which stars Shia LaBeouf and promises plenty of "blow 'em up" scenes -- is likely to appeal to teenagers, especially boys. But while the movie is plenty violent, it's not especially graphic: It's obvious that people are dying in all of the explosions, but there's little blood. The language is stronger than most PG-13 films, featuring a couple of "f--k"s and the frequently used "a--hole," "s--t," and "bitch." Aside from a couple of early, tame conversations about dating and sex, there's only one little kiss in the movie. Product placements aren't overwhelming, but one extended sequence highlights a Porsche Cayenne SUV.

Sexual Content

Jerry and his co-workers discuss someone's chances of sleeping with his girlfriend; Rachel asks her friends who's "getting any" a couple shares a chaste kiss.


Lots of car explosions and bombs that kill police officers, special agents, and civilians, but there isn't that much actual blood. The violence begins with a guided missile attack on a village in the Middle East where a terrorist is supposedly living; there's collateral damage from the attack. A couple of individual characters are killed. During a funeral service, a deceased man's body is shown in a coffin. A heavily burned man's corpse is visible in one scene.


Stronger and more frequent than many PG-13 films; words include "a--hole," "hell," "goddamn," "s--t," "dick," "bitch," "oh my God," and two uses of "f--k."

Social Behavior

The movie's major themes are the moral ambiguity of the president's (and government's) decisions, the ethical dilemma of doing something illegal to save either your life or the lives of loved ones, and the idea that "we the people" have a duty to revolt against corrupt leaders. Other themes include a single mother's selflessness and a man's wish to honor his dead brother and make his father proud.
