What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this book-based action/thriller/drama about an assassin who tries to quit the business but is drawn back in has lots of strong violence, including blood, dead bodies, guns and shootings, stabbings, and explosions. There's also a shot of a topless woman, as well as some sexual innuendo, kissing, and flirting. Language is strong and includes both "f--k" and "s--t," and minor characters drink and smoke in a background way.
- Families can talk about the movie's violence. What impact does killing for a living have on the main character? Are his decisions believable?
- How does the movie present revenge? Is it a valid reason to pursue violence? Do the ends ever justify the means?
- The story is presented as being based on actual events, though there's some speculation about whether that's the case. Why might filmmakers want audiences to think it was based on a true story? Why might some facts be changed?
