Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action throughout, language, some sexual content and drug material.

Jamie and Keri have sex (both have their underwear on but both are topless), the scene quickly turns violent (see below) as one of the goons grabs a pillow and briefly exposes her bare breasts

Packard and a woman have familiar sex with both of them topless but with their pants on, her breast is briefly exposed

Jake tells Keri he loves her by a river. She then gets into the river next to him, slips off part of her swimsuit and exposes her breast. They then proceed to passionately kiss.

The Wraith kills his enemies by letting them run into his car and explode

After the Wraith kills his prey, their bodies remain intact but their eyes are missing (nothing too gory)

Packard interrupts Jamie and Keri having sex, has his goons tie up Jamie and Packard takes a switchblade and slices Jamie's back in a few spots (nothing is seen). They then take Jamie's body (covered in a somewhat bloody sheet), stuff him in the trunk of a car, run the car off a cliff and the car explodes

Jake has some scars on his back

The Wraith comes into Packard's chop shop with a futuristic shotgun of some kind and shoots up the place (nobody is hurt)

Billy tries to stop Packard from forcefully taking Keri away and Packard punches and kicks Billy several times. After Packard leaves, Billy spits out some blood

Skank and Gutterboy chase after Jake and Keri. They try to shoot them but end up crashing their car instead

Packard slits his hand with his knife drawing blood and then proceeds to lick it from his other hand

There are NO F-words but quite a few S.O.B. and S-words

Skank, one of Packards goons, likes to get high on automotive supplies (brake fluid, WD40, etc.) and we see him do these

Most of the auto chases/crashes may be very intense.

Some of the night scenes make the Wraith look a little frightening since he's supposed to be a ghost of some kind
