The sloppy, toxic mix of gunfire, explosions and cursing makes this difficult to endure and impossible to recommend.

Director Peter Berg and screenwriter Lea Carpenter have carved a slight story of a CIA paramilitary team led by an agent (Mark Wahlberg) who’s permanently angry, scornful of diplomats and diplomacy, and prone to hurl verbal abuse at his squad as they spirit a foreign agent to a transport plane to deter nuclear terrorism.

The film contains pervasive gun and physical violence, some gore and frequent profanities. The Catholic News Service classification is L — limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R — restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
