Police rush into a house, where we briefly see a man and a woman on the ground in their underwear (we can partially see her buttocks, but the scene isn't that sexual).

A man and a woman kiss passionately on the elevator, they later retreat to a bedroom where they prepare to make love (she's in her underwear and he's on top of her kissing) but they are interrupted. The scene is more humorous as it shows how much weaponry and equipment they carry.


A man is shot at point blank range.

A man kills two women by breaking their necks in swift motion, while the dog barks at him.

A man shoots two men at point blank range (we see bloody bullet holes) and holds his gun on another.

A man punches another man and we see his bloody face; the beat-up man later fights the other man, punching each other (we see bloody mouths and noses) and one of them falls to his death below.

Two men draw their guns on each other and fire, one of them is shot multiple times and he hangs over the side of a building with lots of blood draining out of his mouth.

A man shoots two men at point blank range, killing them (no blood).

A few fist fights.

A man falls off a building, we see his bloodless corpse.


About 15 uses of fuck, plus many other uses of shit, son of a bitch, bastard, God's name in vain, and mild obscenities


Frank is a recovering alcoholic.

Some casual drinking.

Al is seen smoking


The villain taunts Frank over the phone repeatedly. He's unsettling in how he is always watching Frank and always in different disguises. Many viewers may find his merciless and sometimes sadistic nature frightening or creepy. The part where two women's necks are snapped is somewhat disturbing.

The whole movie is rather suspenseful.

Total: 26/50

Rated R for violence and language
