Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this violent thriller about a family (including Nicole Kidman and Nicolas Cage) terrorized by a quartet of burglars includes lots of fighting, shooting, and blood, as well as threats with a syringe full of some kind of deadly paralyzing drug. There's some sexual innuendo and talk about an extramarital affair. Language is very strong, including multiple uses of "f--k." At various points, characters smoke pot, drink wine, and smoke cigarettes, and a teen prepares to snort cocaine at a party (he rubs some on his gums). One character is a drug dealer.
A husband and wife kiss once. A younger man flirts with the wife and kisses her briefly before she pulls away. There's a suggestion that she has had an affair with him. Some innuendo.
Almost every character is injured in some way. Guns are pulled, and characters are shot, with blood all over the place. There's lots of fighting, punching, and pummeling; a character's hand is smashed. Characters are threatened with and injected with a paralyzing drug. A character is injured in a car crash; another is burned alive.
"F--k" is used often, generally in the heat of the moment; "hell," "goddamn," "a--hole," "s--t," and "bitch" are also used.
The main characters act bravely, solve problems, and overcome challenges as they try to defend their home and family against the intruders.
A pack of Marlboro cigarettes is visible.
