BLACKHAT is a thriller about an elite computer hacker released from prison in order to help the FBI hunt down a cyber-terrorist.

Violence

There are occasional scenes of strong violence involving punches, gunshots and the use of improvised weapons, including tables, chairs, broken bottles and customised tools such as screwdrivers. The violence often results in sight of blood, with infrequent injury detail.

Sex

A man is seen thrusting into a woman, although they remain largely clothed throughout.

There is brief sight of a needle and syringe protruding from a dead man's arm, with disfigured and infected skin around the point of entry. There is also infrequent use of strong language ('f**k').
