DYING OF THE LIGHT is a US spy drama in which an aging CIA agent tries to find his arch enemy before he becomes too ill to work.

Violence

Strong bloody violence includes a fight in which a man's cheek is bitten and a finger is pushed into a man's eye, with sight of blood on the finger as it is pulled out. There is also sight of a bloody throat cutting and some blood spurts from bullet impacts.

There is a scene of torture in which a man is struck on the face repeatedly with a cricket bat and has his ear cut as he screams in pain.

Other issues include multiple uses of strong language ('f**k') and some references to porn being found on a man's computer.
