A woman wears cloths that could be considered sexy, but they don't show a lot of skin. A little cleavage and her legs from her knees down.

There is no sort of nudity or sexual acts. A few kisses but these are casual for example: A husband kisses his wife before he goes to work, that kind of stuff. Nothing explicit.

The aftermath of a mob killing is shown. The victim was shot and thrown off a balcony. There are puddles of blood around the body.

Pictures of a hitmans victims can be seen hanging on the wall in his apartment. The pictures show the people in the positions after they were killed. Since the pictures are in black and white and a bit fuzzy you cannot see to much detail.

A few uses of the S-word, as well as the D & H-word. I do not recall hearing the F-word more than 4 times. (subtitles can be hard to follow sometimes) But I know for a fact it wasn't said more than 6 or 7 times. Probably less.

The "Boss" is a drug lord, and although we do not see any drugs, they are talked about quite a few times.

Nothing worth mentioning on the subject of drinking, but there's a lot of chain smoking in this film.

Nothing Frightening or Intense but the scenes described in Violence & Gore could be a little disturbing to little kids.

Rated R for some language and images of violence
