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

Several women sit/stand around topless for a bit inside a club, but the scene in general is focused on something else.

Violence & Gore

9/10

We see a man partly covered in blood with a few cuts for 5 or 6 seconds after being presumably beaten.

A man has his head bashed against a wall twice and his face kicked once (we see his nose a bit bloody for a split-second). His head is then stomped on 15 times offscreen. For a split-second, we see a foot on his split-open face with some blood splattered next to it. The attacker's jacket remains partly covered with blood for most of the movie after.

A man is shot around the neck. He covers it and some blood leaks down. He is then shot down a few times in the back with exit wounds in his chest.

A man has a fork stabbed into his eye. He is then stabbed three times in the throat with a large knife. We see blood pour out for a second or two.

An attacker is punched twice around the face, then stabbed in the neck with a curtain rod. We see blood leaking out his mouth and then cascading down his shirt for half a second. We then see the attacker's mostly blood-covered face for about 9 seconds. Another attacker is shot dead offscreen.

A man is stabbed in the stomach, he stabs the attacker/villain in the throat. We see the former's jacket and shoes a little blood-soaked shortly.

A woman is shot dead with a shotgun blast to the head. Her scalp graphically tears off with blood spraying everywhere in slow motion for one second.

Bits of shrapnel are picked out of a man's somewhat blood-soaked upper arm for a few seconds.

A man's hand is smashed a few times with a hammer. His mouth is then pried open with the hammer and a bullet is shoved into his mouth.

A man's lower arm is deeply slit, blood squirts out and soaks it for a second. He then lies in a puddle of blood (darkly lit).

A car is knocked off a ledge with a villain inside. He emerges with some blood on his face, but the lighting is dark. We then see him from a distance getting chased to an ocean and held under water.

Profanity

20 uses of 'fuck', 6 of 'shit', 2 of 'p-ssy' (used rather non-offensively) and 'kike', and 1 of 'whorehouse', 'chink', and the middle finger.

Several instances of smoking, an instance of social drinking.

A man offers another man Benzedrine and nicotine and a couple of other drugs to help him stay awake.

The eye-forking, the hand-smashing, and (to a lesser extent) the stabbing near the end are all fairly brutal.

The elevator scene will be shocking to some viewers.

Ambient music plays throughout the movie, which can be hypnotic at first, but startling whenever violence occurs afterwards.

The first 30 minutes are very tame compared to the rest of the film, the second half of which is intense.
