Rated R for Perverse Sexual Content/Nudity and Some Violence.

A bizzare, dreamy scene in which 2 women make out with Clint Eastwood. The 2 women also breifly kiss one another.

Five second flashback revealing rape with bare breasts.

He and another girl briefly have sex in one scene; her breasts and butt are seen.

Clint kisses a young girl on the lips.

One or two men get shot; no blood.

A flashback in which Clint is in a tree, shooting at enemy soldiers. An enemy soldier shoots him in the leg and he falls from the tree.

A brief fist fight.

A man gets whacked in the face with a cane; he's a little bloody.

A girl's pet turtle gets thrown into a wall; it's seen dead and bloody.

Clint gets pushed down a flight of stairs; we see his leg bloody with a bone protruding from it. This is follwed by a prolongued sequence in which his leg gets amputated. The actual cutting is never seen, but slicing sounds are heard and it's briefly seen in shadow.

3 uses of "damn", 2 uses of "bitch", 1 use of "bastard", 1 use of "son of a bitch", and 2 or 3 uses of the n-word.

Eastwood's character gets drunk in one scene.

Much of the movie isn't that bad, but the last 30-35 minutes are rather chaotic and disturbing, particularly the bizzare dream, the turtle's death, the amputation sequence, and the semi-despressing ending.
