Rated R for strong violence, some sexual content, nudity, and language

Topless women are seen. There's also a mild sensual scene.

People are shot throughout, usually with some blood. The more graphic moments include 2 guys getting blasted with shotguns (LOTS of blood) and when a man gets shot through the mouth (some blood is seen pouring from the back of his head.)

Two people get shot with arrows; no blood.

One guy is pushed into a shard of glass; he collapses forward and it's seen sticking bloodily in his back.

A man gets beaten and kicked; he ends up a little bloody.

A guy gets sliced by an ax; blood pours from his wound.

A man is drowned.

A woman is strangled to death with a cord; a little blood is seen around her neck.

A womans corpse is seen with her neck cut.

A woman is assaulted and held down to be raped by a group of men. The men are beaten up before they can rape her.

3 or 4 uses of the f-word, along with some other moderate language. One character uses a lot of insults, but most of them are gross and childish.

The main character is an alcoholic.

Talks of drugs.

The main villain is pretty sadistic and creepy; the final fight is also a bit intense.
