Satisfying conspiracy thriller that plays like a Tom Clancy "Rambo," with Mark Wahlberg as an ex-U.S. Army sniper framed by government bigwig Danny Glover for an attempted presidential assassination that killed a foreign bishop instead. Director Antoine Fuqua, who knows his way around guns 'n' ammo from "Training Day" and "Tears of the Sun," keeps the grimly photographed action brisk and believable, and the plot twists mostly convincing. Some rough and crude language, much military violence with bloodshed, a scene of anonymous soldiers immolated by napalm, two scenes of torture aftermath, and a woman in partial states of undress, though no nudity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
