We see a scene with Nino and his girlfriend in bed, fairly graphic, with some moaning, but not too graphic.

A man holds a gun to a naked man's head. He is shown nude from behind.

A man is thrown from a bridge.

A man is shot in the ankle, blood sprays.

A gang invades an apartment building and terrorizes the residents.

A man is stabbed through the hand with a sword-cane, but not much blood is shown.

A man is hit over the head with a bottle.

A man's throat is cut, no visible blood but done with a very loud sound effect of the knife cutting through flesh and bone.

Mobsters armed with machine guns fire upon unarmed victims, several people are hit with bloody bullet wounds shown.

Five men are gunned down in a drive-by shooting, bloody bullet wounds shown.

A man shoots his brother in the head, blood sprays.

Two men fight and one is beaten quite badly then thrown off a fire escape.

A man is shot in the chest, blood sprays and he then falls from a staircase onto the floor below.

Copious R-rated profanity (most of it from Ice T's character), plenty of "fuck" "shit" "motherfucker" etc. Women are constantly referred to as "bitches". A few racial slurs for blacks is used, and a couple of ethnic slurs for Spanish people is used by Don Amateo.

The entire movie is based around gangsters manufacturing and selling crack cocaine, including depictions of crack smoking and addiction.

The assassination attempt in which Wesley Snipes' character uses a little girl as a human shield may be considered intense/frightening to some viewers. The entire movie centers around gang violence and drug wars.

The atmosphere of the movie is violent. 14+
