MOMENTUM is an action thriller about a woman who goes on the run following a diamond heist.

Language

There is frequent use of strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker'), and one muttered use of very strong language ('c**t').

Violence

There are frequent scenes of strong violence, sometimes bloody, including stabbings, shootings, exchanges of kicks and punches, explosions, and car crashes. Infrequent gory moments include sight of severed heads, and a bloody stomach wound on a corpse.

A scene of violent interrogation sees the antagonist put the protagonist's leg into a vice, which is then tightened. Although in pain, she remains defiant. The vice does not cause any gory or lasting damage to her leg, with only infrequent shots of her muscles tensing as the vice tightens.

Threat

There is a scene of sexual threat in which a woman is held down on a table by a man with his hand around her throat. Duct tape is put over her mouth, and a knife is run over her face before cutting open her shirt. However, she is saved before any sexual violence occurs.
