There are some clear scenes of the result of torture (aftermath, not during) which underscore the brutality of the enemy.
They are not throughout the movie, just in a few spots and they are consistent with the story line at that time.
You can see far more brutality, blood and gore in any number of R rated movies with less relevance IMHO.
I would suggest if someone was squeamish (and I don’t knock that) that someone else they trust see the movie and give them a review.
I do suggest that parents see the movie before pre-teens or young teens.
The movie portrays the military in an honest light and I do think it is valuable for teens who have been exposed to Avatar to see this movie.
There is bravery, compassion and humanity in this movie, just like real people are (and of course there are non-actor real people in it, being like themselves).
I will see it again and buy the blu-ray when it comes out.
The movie is 2 and 1/2 hours long and I was surprised when it was at the end. It kept my unwavering interest.
Thank you for taking the time to reply as you did.
I appreciate it.
