A man is bare-chested and wearing undershorts in a torture scene. A man and a woman kiss, and another man and woman kiss. A man and a woman sit in bed together, they are clothed, but it is implied that they have had sex.

A young boy is brought into an emergency room on a stretcher and has a bloody head wound and a bloody wound on his side.

We see several disjointed sequences of a boy dying after having been struck by a car. No blood.

A man has his head stuck to a cold pole, and when he pulls free rips part of his skin off.

A man uses a power saw to cut another man's throat - blood pours everywhere.

An explosive device is detonated and blows the front half of a woman's head off - VERY graphic.

36 uses of 'fuck', 3 of 'bitch', 3 of 'shit', 1 of 'cunt', and 1 of 'ass', as well as 7 of 'God', 4 of 'damn', and 1 of 'hell'.
