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.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity


A naked woman is seen from behind while showering

A dead woman's breast is seen for a second or two.

Some sexual references including references to rape.

A few, very short flashbacks to a rape; the rape is not actually seen - you just see what the victim could see for a few seconds. Some may find this upsetting despite the rape not being shown.

Violence & Gore


We briefly see a bloody body and quick images of a bloody (but alive) rape victim.

Eric has quick, brief flashback images of the attack on him and his girlfriend (a bit intense).

A brief fight scene between Eric and a shopkeeper, the shop is blown up and both survive.

Some scenes of shooting and fistfights, none of these scenes are particularly violent.

Top Dollar stabs a character in the neck and then shoots him.

One scene where Eric kills of many bad guys within a few minutes: shooting, stabbing, people being thrown out windows, etc.

Top Dollar shoots Eric, with moderately bloody consequences.

Lots of gunfire until one character is hit by a bullet.

A crow pecks out a woman's eyes (nowhere near as graphic or violent as it sounds).



Moderate use of profanity throughout, including fuck, shit, ass, hell, and other profanities.


Some scenes are set in bars where people can be seen drinking.

A few scenes which feature people smoking.

One character is seen snorting cocaine.

A man and a woman inject heroin into their arms.

A man is murdered by having lots of needles injected into him, we presume they contain drugs.

Some references to drugs (mainly only cigarettes and alcohol though).


The Crow's appearance may be found scary by very young children, despite him being the good guy.

33/50 - Recommended for 16+
