The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

There is one sex scene near the end, where a man and a woman have sex in a bathtub; we see them writhing and we briefly see the woman's bare chest.

One particularly crude reference to anal rape in prison.

Violence & Gore

Strong violence is infrequent, but nonetheless brutal and bloody.

A number of people are shot in one scene with a lot of blood spray and visible injuries.

A man is shot, and we clearly see the shot lacerate part of his back in an exit wound and spray blood onto a wall behind them.

Near the end of the film, a man fully explodes, and we see the entire room covered in his blood and guts.

A man hits many other men with a golf club and we see blood spray and hear bones crunching.

A few visible fistfights with blood.

Many other milder violent scenes throughout.

Profanity

The word "fuck" is constantly used, amounting to 180 times throughout the film, including derivatives such as "motherfucker". Robert Carlyle's character uses the word at least once in every line he says.

"Cunt" is said at least 5 times.

"Shit" is also said a lot.

British profanity, such as "twat", "wanker" and "bloody" are also constant.

Two uses of "nigger" and other racist language.

Other milder words, like "bastard", are also very common.

The whole film is about drugs and drug dealing, and the references are constant.

A man invents a new drug, similar to ecstasy, and many people are seen getting high from them. He is seen throwing the pills into a crowd at a rave and encouraging people to take them.

A man is seen visibly smoking a marijuana cigarette whilst driving, and he is pulled over by the police.

There are a few scenes where gangsters take pills.

There are no scenes that are particularly frightening, however the film has adult issues throughout - wouldn't recommend to be viewed by children.
