A considerable amount of nudity. Many women show there breasts in the film. There is one scene with full female rear and frontal nudity. There is another scene where a womans pubic region can be vaguely seen in the background. There is also some fairly minor sexual violence in the film.

Sex & Nudity rating: 7.5/10

A man twists a woman's nipple hard, then punches her repeatedly, and, when she is on the ground, he puts his foot on her head. She is shown with some blood on her face/body.

A man takes a woman and tries to drown her in a fish tank, he then breaks the glass and cuts her neck with the broken glass. This is shown for a few seconds, with some blood on the glass and in the fish tank.

At the end two men are shot. The impacts are not shown, but much blood is shown seeping from the wounds.

Violence & Gore rating: 7/10

Some course language.


Smoking, drinking and talk of pot.


The whole movie is very intense; not only in violence, but in the psychotic nature of Christopher Plummer's character. The entire nature of the film is very adult, definitely not for children.

Rated R for violence, language and some sexuality
