A man and a woman have sex in bed. The woman is seen on top, and a quick side-profile shot of her breasts is shown. When she climbs out of bed, you see her butt as she walks away. The scene is brief, but intense and is shown early in the film 11 min. mark.

A brief scene is shown on a man's laptop computer of two topless women kissing. It is a clip from a porn film. One woman kisses the other woman's breast. This clip is shown seconds after a dead man is tied by his neck in an apartment 38-39 minutes into the film.

Another man and woman have sex outside a bar, sounds are heard, but no nudity is shown, 50 min. mark.

There are several gunfights in this movie. Several people graphically get shot in the head.

A man is drowned in his pool. This scene is prolonged as the hitman struggles with his target.

A man in a wheelchair is shot through the heart at point blank range.

A carjacker is severely beaten. He is punched and kicked in the face several times.

A man is strangeld to death with a belt. It is then made to look like he died from sexual self-asphyxiation when the hitman places a computer in front of him with pornography on it.

A hitman gets into a struggle with his target. The target gets stabbed in the stomach multiple times with a screwdriver and when he falls on the ground, the hitman finishes him off with a fireplace tool. Very bloody scene.

One hitman holds his target's nose shut while another hitman shoves a tube down the target's throat. The man chokes to death.

In a struggle between a hitman and his target, the target is stabbed in the face with a pin from a fire extinguisher then thrown out the window of a bus into oncoming traffic. You see the man's head get smashed by an oncoming car.

A target's car is rammed by two hitmen and flipped upside down. The two hitmen approach the wreck and each unloads their clip from their assault rifle into the target. The camera is focused on the hitmen shooting and the dead body is not shown.

Around 30 F-words, less than other Jason Statham movies. Other ones (sh*t, b*tch, a**hole, p*ss etc.) used intermittently.

Lots of alcohol during scenes in the club. Some drug use, especially in the beginning. Some Smoking throughout.

Several intense fighting scenes, sometimes brutal.
