The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

In two different scenes, a man's naked butt is briefly shown. One when a man walks out of a room through a door and the other just after a man has been raped.

There are graphic scenes of homosexual rape taking place in prison. There is one lovemaking scene, a woman's butt is very briefly shown at the end of this scene, which is intercut with a homosexual rape/killing.

VIOLENCE/GORE 9 - There's extreme violence, though the worst of it is kept -- just -- off screen. Some very violent murders - one group murder committed by forced cocaine overdose, and one man is raped and killed in a particularly unpleasant fashion, with a large knife through a very sensitive area of the anatomy. The camera doesn't linger on the worst moments, but the images do come through loud and clear.

PROFANITY 6 - Profanity is heavy and frequent. Lots of instances of the F-word and other four-letter words.

Rated R for strong violence and sensuality, and for language and drug content
