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.

Sex & Nudity

About 36 minutes into the film, a picture of a woman in a tight top appears for a few seconds, followed shortly after by a picture of a woman in a bikini.

2 women are kissing in the background of one scene. This is shown twice.

Violence & Gore

A corpse falls from a window onto the hood of a taxi cab (We see blood spray on the windshield). The body remains there, bleeding, until two men remove it and put it in the trunk of the cab. The blood is then doused off by water.

A man draws a gun and shoots a man twice in the head at point-blank range (Blood squirts). A man shoots two other men; one lies on the ground, wounded, and the attacker shoots him in the face, killing him. A man shoots another man several times in the head, neck and torso (Bloody bullet wounds are shown, and blood squirts). A man grabs a man from behind and breaks his neck. A man is shot and killed.

A man exchanges fire with another man; the latter is shot multiple times in the torso (We see a massive amount of blood). He manages to stand upright, and sits down, has a brief conversation with his killer, before dying. It is heavily implied that a man kills another man. A man remarks that a taxi driver reportedly went on a shooting rampage before killing himself, and states that he believes that someone else was with him.

A man crashes his car purposefully, wounding him and his passenger, who escapes. A police officer tries to arrest a man; the man attacks the officer, handcuffing him and holding him at gunpoint before running off. A bloodied corpse is found in the trunk of a car. A man is shot in the shoulder (Blood sprays). A scene shows several bodies in a morgue with very gory wounds. An intense nightclub shootout depicts many characters being killed by gunfire.

Throughout the movie, the main character is held hostage by an assassin, and is forced to drive him to each of his "hits".

Profanity

22 uses of "Fuck", with milder profanities ("Shit", "Damn","Ass","Bitch" etc.) All f-words used in a strong impact way.

Alcohol is shown and used at a nightclub. Some characters are involved in a narcotics ring, and narcotics are mentioned on occasion, but never shown or explicitly discussed.

The main character is held hostage throughout the course of the movie, and is forced to participate in illicit activities by his captor, who is a contract killer. The threat of violence and death is present throughout the film.

The famous "Club Scene" is very intense.
