One sex scene where a woman is raped, not too graphic, only lasts about 40 seconds.

Three men carried a woman with intent to rape her, but are interrupted. Her breast are briefly visible.

Two kissing scenes.

A man is shown putting on his clothes in front of naked woman (covered in bed sheets) lying in bed after they've had sex (offscreen).


There are several scenes of gunplay with ranging amounts of blood splatter.

Other instances of violence include a guy getting chopped up with an axe (obscured by a crowd of people), a guy getting his throat slashed (we only see the aftermath, not the actual slashing), and a guy stepping on some nails (some blood is seen and a few moments later we see his bloody foot all bandaged up). An old woman's throat is slashed. Graphic, but very brief.


Few F-bombs here and there, including one or two use of motherfucker.


Some drugs are occasionally seen and used.


Quite a few somewhat intense scenes namely the rape, several instances of innocent people being beaten or mugged, and the long, over-the-top shootout at the end.
