Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this action-packed remake of the gritty, same-named 1970s thriller is intense and violent and not meant for young kids. The fast-paced story is accompanied by heaping doses of realistic, bloody (expect lots of gunplay ... and resulting gore spatters) and profanity (including lots of "s--t"s and "f--k"s). But on the up side, there's not much in the way of sex, product placement, or substance use/abuse.

Sexual Content

A young woman flashes her bra to her boyfriend via Webcam.

Violence

Lots of very realistic threats and gunfire, with gory results. People are shot point-blank, their blood spattering everywhere.

Language

Lots of strong language throughout, including very frequent use of "f--k," as well as "s--t," "ass," "hell," "damn," "goddamn," "oh my God," and more.

Social Behavior

A man and his crew hijack a subway train for money and kill anyone who gets in the way. But another man tries to erase a wrongdoing by stepping up to the plate to help, and strangers aid each other in a time of crisis.
