Little nudity and no sex

A man hires a prostitute for non-sexual reasons.

A brief shot of a man's buttocks as he runs out of a shower.

A woman is seen in her underwear very briefly.

The main character(male) is often shown shirtless.

The first scene of the film depicts a reversed shooting, with a stream of blood oozing backwards, blood shown on the walls and floor, and then the shot itself off-screen.

Two men fight; there is some shoving and tackling, then the second man is knocked out with a bottle.

A man slaps and punches a woman after she makes a remark about his dead wife.

A presumed rape is stopped and the presumed rapist is shot. The shooter is then bludgeoned by another attacker; he falls to the ground and blood pools under his head.

A character is injected with an overdose of insulin.

67 uses of "fuck" and its variations, 23 of "shit," 5 of the middle finger, 3 of "for Christ's sake," 2 of "hell," 1 of "crap," 1 of "Jesus Christ," 1 of "cock" and 1 of "prick."

We see a woman snort something not known to the viewer; it is most likely cocaine.

As aforementioned, we see the before and after of a recklessly-motivated beating; also, the aftermath of a bloody killing is seen.

Rated R for violence, language and some drug content. Not suitable for children or young persons.
