>> Rating: R for violence and language throughout, some sexual references and brief graphic nudity.
>> What it’s about: An off-duty cop picks up an Uber driver and presses him into duty while chasing down a drug lord. The movie is also a commentary about our current American nightmare of late capitalist economics and unchecked law enforcement, masquerading as an “action comedy.”
>> The kid attractor factor: Teens will be drawn to the action comedy genre and humor.
>> Good lessons/bad lessons: Bad: Off-duty cops can torture and kill civilians in the line of duty. Being a “man” means being violent.
Good: One can be sensitive and expressive as a man in ways that can help all relationships.
>> Violence: Lots of extreme violence from the get-go: shooting, martial arts fighting, stabbing, torture, explosions, you name it.
>> Language: Swearing throughout.
>> Sexuality: References to sex and sexuality (often crude) and a scene in a male strip club that features graphic nudity.
>> Drugs: References to drug trafficking and drugs seen on screen.
>> Parents advisory: This profane and violent flick is for mature teens only.
