What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this film contains plenty of graphic action violence, usually in the form on bloody, on-screen shootings. The deaths are quick, so there's not much suffering. The body count is not as high as some other action blockbusters (such as The Terminator), but is fairly constant throughout the duration of the picture. There is also lots of strong language.
- Families can talk about how and why we treat people differently when their physical appearance is dramatically altered. Why are some of the violent scenes funny and others very serious? When and why is it appropriate to laugh at some "over the top" violence? Why are so many films by Hong Kong directors, such as John Woo, as violent?
