The main theme of the movie is that a basic beat cop is training to be an uncover/narc agent so he can get promoted quicker and learn the other side of the police department.

Lots of fist fights and violent take downs throughout including a shootout between two cops

A man is shown being excecuted by a Russian Mafia firing squad.

nearly non stop graphic language including references to homosexuality (male and female) and use of the N word (mostly used by black characters and as describing a friend but also in a derogatory manner)
