This movie has several violent scenes.

4. A man opens his freezer and finds a patch of flesh from a victims arm.

6. A man finds his car vandalized. The hood was stabed with a knife and the knife is left in the hood.

7. In the climax, a man stabs another baseball player to death(not very bloody or gory due to it being dark and raining but the act is clearly seen). The police shoot a man to death(some blood).

Many uses of the f-word. Many uses of 'Jesus' and 'Jesus Christ' as a swear word throughout.

1. Some men have a drink at a bar.

The movie is very intense throughout. The main character has anger issues and he can be very violent. There is a part where the ex wife gets a restraining order that the father violates several times. In these scenes there is alot of screaming. At one point the main character kidnaps a child. The child is not hurt but it may be intense to some people.

Rated R for strong language throughout and some intense violence
