Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Parker focuses on a career thief (Jason Statham) bent on revenge after his gang double crosses him and leaves him for dead. His quest for vengeance leaves a body count in his wake. There are also lots of intense fight scenes, involving guns, knives, fists, and even a few pieces of furniture, and there's plenty of blood. Some of the characters drink, and most of them swear throughout the film, managing to weave "f--k" (and more) into even everyday conversation. There are brief flashes of nudity, though the film is surprisingly devoid of romance, even with co-star Jennifer Lopez trying her best to seduce Parker.

Sexual Content

Brief shots of topless women; Lopez strips to her underwear (so Parker can get make sure she's not wearing a wire). Lopez flirts heavily with Parker, but as her advances get more explicit, he shows no interest.

Violence

Plenty of action, and most of it leaves people dead. There are shootouts, fist fights, car crashes, even a shootout/fist fight inside a car that's about to crash. Parker isn't invincible and is left battered and bloody by several of these encounters, but his opponents come out even bloodier, and usually dead. In one particularly intense knife fight, there's a close-up the blade going all the way through a man's hand, but the other guy still comes off worse.

Language

Very frequent strong swearing, mostly "f--k," which punctuates almost every exchange between the criminals, as well as several variations of "s--t," plus "ass," "d--k," "damn," "hell," "goddamn," "oh my God," and "Jesus Christ" (as an exclamation).

Social Behavior

There's no honor among thieves here, not when a gang of criminals double-crosses Parker, takes his cut from a big heist, and leaves him for dead. But nothing makes Parker (a thief, but an "honorable" one) more angry than people who don't keep their word; he tracks down his former colleagues to teach them a lesson about honesty.

Consumerism

Parker spends much of the film driving around in a Bentley convertible, while Lopez bemoans the fact that her Mazda is about to be repossessed. Other scenes feature Ford vehicles. Several characters use Apple computers and iPhones, and the bad guys like to drink Budweiser beer.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some scenes show guys drinking beer, and Lopez has a taste for white wine.
