  • 6/10
  • Lots of sexual innuendo and rough sex talk about different types of intercourse and masturbation. also a few references to oral/anal sex and erections.

  • Some cleavage and a woman in a small bra and panties dances suggestively around a pole.
  • We see a man's bare behind.

Violence & Gore

  • 8/10
  • The film features a lot of violence which isn't typical of a Kevin Smith film since in most his other films violence is almost absent.
  • Two angels shoot and kill several people in a boardroom (we hear screaming and see blood splatter on various objects in the room).
  • We see the aftermath of a massacre, with many dead and very bloody bodies all over the street; we then see that an angel is picking people up and dropping them (one man's head is splattered all over the ground, with very bloody results).
  • An angel's head explodes, splattering blood.
  • An angel has bloody stumps where his wings used to be; another angel has his wings shot off by a machine gun (blood splatters as his wings fall to pieces).
  • A powerful beam emerges from a man as a soul exits his body, which slices a woman's side (there is lots of blood, and she dies, but is quickly revived).
  • A man is shot with a machine gun (we see bloody bullet holes and his body jerks on their impact).
  • An angel stabs and kills a man (we hear the squishy sounds as he pulls it out, and see blood on them both).
  • A woman is stabbed in the back with a hockey stick and killed (we see a bloody wound on her back).
  • A man on a bus is shot and killed (off screen, but many people react in horror).
  • An angel breaks a man's neck and kills him.
  • A demon is killed with a golf club (a gooey substance pours out).

  • Lots of fighting and brawling through the whole movie.
