No graphic violence shown, but several violent explosions (some life-taking) are displayed at a distance. A needle deeply pierces a man's hand during an intense medical test. A man is shown with a severely burned face, with some blood and blistering; it is clear that he is otherwise unharmed, as he is walking vigorously.

Film contains frequents mild profanities such as damn, s**t, hell, etc. Pussy is used once. The word f**k is used 5 times. Blasphemous use of "Jesus".
