Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this film contains graphic violence and a sex scene. There are several shootouts, some beatings, and a stabbing. Though the violence is graphic, the camera doesn't linger on the characters' suffering. The villains are racist South African diplomats, and the film seems to draw a connection between their country of origin and their racism. Though this made sense at the time, it might give young viewers the impression that Apartheid is still policy in South Africa. One character is essentially given a pass for money laundering.

Sexual Content

A recurring condom joke, brief simulated sex, female nudity.


Onscreen shootings, death by nail gun, explosions, stabbing.


Plenty of cursing.

Social Behavior
