A few innuendos.


Lot's of car stunts,explosions etc.

At the beginning of the film we see a man driving a car, we then see him drive into a dark tunnel followed by a loud crash and flames.The man is obviously implied to been killed in the crash because we see a digger pick up the battered car with the man's body inside chucked down a cliff and into a river.

The mafia threaten to kill Charlie and his group the same way they murdered the man as mentioned above.

A group of people hijack a van by beating the drivers with baseball bats and spraying them with hoses.

In the car chase, lot's of people are nearly run over and the cars crash into things.

2 uses of 'Bastard' (1 said in Italian)

1 'Motherf--kers' (barely heard)

The opening scene were a man drives into a dark tunnel and crashes might startle younger viewers.

The car chase can be suspenseful.

At the end we see a group of men in a coach hanging on the edge of a cliff then the film ends (It's unknown what happens to them.)
