The Post-Gazette reviews movies from a family perspective:

'Jack Reacher'

Rated: PG-13.

Suitable for: Teens and older.

What you should know: This movie, starring Tom Cruise in the title role, was filmed in Pittsburgh. It opens with a scene, taken from the Lee Child source novel, in which a sniper shoots a handful of people outside PNC Park. It shows the city off to great advantage. The PG-13 rating is right on the money.

Language: One f-word, a half-dozen uses of profanity and a dozen milder four-letter words.

Sexual situations and nudity: A woman is briefly shown in underwear leaving a man's bed.

Violence/scary situations: Lots, with the sniper shooting, intense physical fights and shootouts that wound or kill, the murder of a character and dumping of the body, scenes of someone held captive and a long chase scene.

Alcohol and drug use: Beer is consumed and a scene is set in a bar.
