A man kisses a woman. It's implied she's being forced to sleep with him.


Lots of shoot-outs with numerous casualties. However, the deaths are usually bloodless and brief.

A man shoots about twenty-five people with a Gatling gun and some men are suffering from their wounds before they're finished (no blood or bullet holes). A man is stabbed by a sword; it protrudes out his back (blood is shown on the blade). Two men are crushed by a huge barrel rolling at high speed (we see their blood-coated corpses).

A character gets a beating, and though not very graphic, there is a lingering brutality that may unsettle some viewers - he is mocked and his face is swollen and bloody. During interrogation an innocent man is beaten and choked (a little blood on his mouth).

A man behind a curtain is killed by a shotgun; when the curtain drops, his face is shown splattered in blood.

Two men are crushed by a barrel that explodes into pieces. Later blood is shown and the bodies.


There is one clearly audible blasphemy, but in Spanish.


The protagonist smokes throughout the film and drinks at saloons. The two feuding families sell "liquor" and "weapons". Some wine casks are seen.


2 (relatively) innocent men are tortured through beatings.
