Sex & Nudity

A man is nude in a bathtub, but only his upper body is visible because of his seating position and the camera angles used.

A man makes a halfhearted threat to his wife that he'll have sex with her if she won't stop talking.

Towards the end, a man and a woman have a conversation in which they imply that beer "leads to" sex.

Violence & Gore

9/10.

A sheriff's deputy is violently strangled to death with a pair of handcuffs. Blood is briefly seen squirting out of his mouth as he is chokes in pain.

A man is shot in the head with a captive bolt pistol. It makes a bloody hole and blood trickles down out of the wound.

Twice we see the bloody aftermath of a drug deal that went wrong. Many dead bodies, including a dead dog can be seen lying on the ground. One drug dealer that lived through the ordeal is seen dying in a truck of a bullet wound in the stomach as he begs for water. Blood is seen seeping through his shirt where the bullet entered.

A man is seen dead from a gunshot to the head. Blood on the wound as well as the broken glass the bullet exited through.

A man is shot in the shoulder. We later see him removing shrapnel from the wound, though it isn't very bloody.

A dog is shot at point blank range with a pistol. We hear the dog whimper and fall down on the ground dying. A bullet wound can be seen in the dog's chest once it has fallen, though the wound is not overly bloody.

Two men are shot with a pistol. One man is shot in the chest and the other is shot in the head. We can see both the bloody bullet wounds.

A man's forearm is blown off with a shotgun during a particularly brutal murder. His arm can be seen dangling off a small piece of flesh as he screams in pain. We see blood from the wound spray on the wall behind him and on a lamp shade before he is shot again in the chest (bloody buckshot wounds can be seen) and blown back into the wall from the power of the blast.

Another man is shot in the chest with a shotgun. We see the bloody buck shot wounds as his body blown back from the force of the blast. A small pool of blood starts to form around his corpse.

A man is shot at close range with a shotgun while trying to hide behind a shower curtain. The entry wound isn't seen, but blood can be seen spraying behind the curtain.

A desk clerk is shot off screen. We never see his body or blood, but an empty chair where he was previously was sitting in is empty making it clear he is dead on the floor behind the desk out of sight.

Though you do not see the shot hit him, a man has a very bloody wound from a gunfight with the villain.

A man is shot in the throat and a considerable amount of blood squirts out of the wound. He is then shot in the head as blood sprays out, leaving a bloody wound.

A man is wounded in the leg with a shotgun. We do not see the entry wound it made until the man is treating himself with medical supplies he steals from a pharmacy. We see a bloody hole in his leg along with many buck shot pellet wounds. We see him pull the buck shot pellets out of his leg and blood is seen gushing out. This makes him walk with a limp for the remainder of the film.

A man is shot in the throat with a shotgun. He falls to the ground and blood pours from the wound in his throat and his mouth as he gargles in pain, gasping for air.

We see the aftermath of a different shootout. A woman can be seen floating dead in a pool surrounded by blood. A man is seen crawling on the ground in pain with a large bloody stain on the side of his shirt for a bullet wound. Another man is seen lying on the floor in his motel room dead from being shot in the chest; we see his shirt covered in blood.

It is suggested that a man kills a woman in her home. If so it happens off screen and is ambiguous.

A man is injured in a car accident. He acts relatively fine, but a bone can be seen protruding through his arm. He also suffers from some minor injuries to his face, he has blood dripping from his mouth and a bruised eye.

Profanity

3 -sses, 2 f-cks, and 1 each of sh-t, b-tch, son of a b-tch, wh-re, and d-ck, along with 1 use of "screw" (sex). Also 6 uses of "hell", 3 of "Goddamn", 2 of "damn", 1 of "My God", and 1 of "Oh Lord".

No drug usage in the film, but the main theme of the film has to do with stolen drug money. In one scene you see many bags of heroin in the back of a truck. The sheriff refers to it as "Mexican brown dope".

Infrequent smoking and drinking.

10/10

The scene where a man's arm is practically shot off, while brief, may still be shocking or disconcerting for many.

The movie centers on a psychopathic killer that clearly has no mercy, morals or ethics. He kills almost everyone he comes into contact with, deciding each of their fates with a coin toss.
