Sex & Nudity

Sex and Nudity: 6/10

A man walks into an underwear store: we see several women making suggestive movements and wearing thongs. We see several closeups on their bare butts. A woman and the man talk about the size of underwear for the man's wife. She pushes up her boobs, while smiling, and he looks at a woman who passes by (we see her bare butt). Later, a woman comes up in a bikini to the man, and he briefly looks her over.

A subplot is about how a married man had a sexual affair with another woman. Several scenes throughout talk about this

A woman in her bra invites her husband to have sex on the bed. Strongly implied oral sex

A woman opens up her bathrobe revealing herself in a bra and panties to her husband, who looks her over with pleasure

A man and a wife talking about having sex

Several sexual innuendos

Violence & Gore

Violence: 7/10

Several chase scenes, where gunfire is exchanged

A gunbattle where several men are killed. This is quite bloody with several bloody bullet holes and blood on the table and floor

We see the dead, slightly bloodied body of a woman

A man on a bike gets struck by a semi-truck, killing him instantly (blood coveres his face and the ground around him, but not overlly graphic but a little shocking for first time viewers).

A man threatens another man with a gun.

A man shoots another man in the hand with a pistol (blood, and the man yells in pain, and we later see a bloody bandage).


Profanity: 8/10

Approx. 25 uses of f--k, and countless uses of s--t, son of a b----h, b-----d, d--n and what the h--l

The man getting run over by the semi is very unexpected. One could call it shocking.
