A couple is heard having sex; a few moments later, woman is seen in a blanket (she's obviously nude though).

From a distance, a woman is seen naked from behind.

A man gets shot with a stun gun ball.

Two guys get injured in an explosion; they are later seen a bit bloody and bandaged.

A woman gets shot in the shoulder; some blood spurts.

Another person gets riddled with bullets; lots of blood spurts.

A killer gets killed in a explosion.

Numerous uses of "s**t", at least 15. All other language is relatively mild.

Some smoking and drinking, including intoxication by a soon-to-be-former Los Angeles Police Dept. officer who talks drunkenly to Ralph about his drug dealer neighbor who sold to children harassed him into stealing evidence (drugs) and selling to someone who later "talked" (informed on the cop as their dealer, a possible plea agreement) when "busted" (arrested) and about how he'd be a target in prison where many inmates are the same men he previously arrested.

A lengthy chase scene that occurs towards the end is fairly intense.

A killer threatens some of the characters throughout the movie; these scenes are genuinely creepy.
