Sex & Nudity

A scene with Keira Knightly taking a bath shows her breast, but it is hardly visible due to dark lighting.

Contains a love scene with some nudity.

Violence & Gore

The movie begins with battle scenes from the first gulf war and culminates in the lead character being shot in the face from a close range with very bloody results.

A scene depicts a police officer being murdered by three gunshots, the final one being close range to the officer's head. The camera is far enough from the actors so that the gunshot wounds are not visible (no gore).

Profanity

Many instances of the "F" word throughout the movie.

Many of the characters smoke cigarettes.

A woman is an alcoholic and is shown drinking heavily.

Psychiatric drugs are given (often with force).

Gulf war battle scenes.

A man is forced into a straitjacket, drugged and shoved into a morgue drawer several times. He is held prisoner in a mental institution and is abused by a doctor and orderlies.
