What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this sci-fi action adventure with Star Wars' Hayden Christensen features lots of violence that appears to have little effect on victims. The teleportation process causes abrupt ruptures in space and time and sometimes rams jumpers into walls or the ground. Fights show bodies slamming, falling, and crashing through walls, as well as gunfire and electric zapping. There are also explosions, a car chase, and a combat zone in the background. One scene suggests that sex has taken place (a woman's naked back is visible in bed); another shows a couple taking off their shirts (her bra stays on) and kissing. Language includes "f--k," "s--t," and "hell."
