There are no sexual scenes, references, jokes or nudity.

Shadows are seen strangling a man, and characters engage in a protracted gun battle. However, no disturbing violence -- and certainly no gore -- is shown.

A guy is clocked in the head during a struggle, knocked cold, then stuffed into a steamer trunk. He does escape through a false bottom.

For vegans: A small calf is confined in a box.

There is one instance of the word "damn" and the word "hell" near the end of the movie (during the shooting stand-off).

Many characters smoke throughout the film. There are no drugs. The characters occassionally drink casually while on the train.
