Sex & Nudity

  • 6/10
  • A man and woman kiss in a sexual manner in a bathroom
  • A 12-year-old girl tells the hotel manager that Leon is not her father but in fact her lover (a lie).
  • The 12 year old girl keeps talking about how she loves leon, and wants to have it with him

Violence & Gore

  • 9/10 - The violence here is pretty graphic, but the film focuses more on the romance than the action so it's pretty infrequent.
  • A man pulls someone off of a balcony and you hear them scream as they fall.
  • A man shoots someone. While you do not see the bullet hit, you do see a large amount of blood and brain matter splatter on a nearby wall.
  • A man shoots a girl with a shotgun (not graphic) but you do see a bloody wound for a second.
  • A small boy is shot dead. This is not shown, however it is discussed heavily throughout the film and you see the killer trying to shoot the boy. This scene is extremely intense
  • A man walks into a room and shoots two people in the head with considerable blood spray

Profanity

  • 8/10
  • Some strong, but mostly infrequent language. Several uses of "fuck", "shit" and "bitch"; much of it spoken by a 12-year-old girl. Religious exclamations including "goddamn".

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • 5/10
  • Stansfield takes some kind of psychoactive pill twice during the film; he also lights up a cigarette in one scene.

  • There is also an undercurrent of sexual tension between a pre-adolescent girl and a much older man.
  • 37/50.
