'Knight and Day'
Rating: PG-13 for sequences of action violence throughout, and brief strong language
What it's about: Unsuspecting woman finds herself attracted to a spy who seems to kill an awful lot of people in the line of duty.
The kid attractor factor: Slam-bang action without much blood; Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz at their toothiest.
Good lessons/bad lessons: Watch out for the guy who keeps "bumping" into you.
Violence: Almost, but not quite, constant.
Language: Smidgen of profanity.
Sex: Quite chaste despite the presence of Diaz in a bikini.
Drugs: Tranquilizers, mixed drinks.
Parents' advisory: I didn't count, but this movie has a "Die Hard"-size body count, a little blood, but mostly killing without consequences.
Rating: PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, disturbing images and sexual content
What it's about: A haunted Civil War vet searches for the man who killed his family and branded him in the face.
The kid attractor factor: It's based on a comic book, and it co-stars Megan Fox.

Violence: Mayhem, and lots of it.
Language: Clean, considering.
Sex: Megan Fox plays an Old West hooker.
Drugs: A saloon is visited.
Parents' advisory: One of the more violent comic book adaptations, suitable for 11-and-up.
