A woman and a man are seen facing one another (the woman appears to be sitting on the man's lap and she's fully clothed), and the woman moans and thrusts suggestively, implying that they are having sex; they kiss and the woman stands up and walks away. [0:15:05-37]

Violence & Gore

Several gunfights, three with briefly bloody results.

A man hits a man's head three times with a rifle. The head is briefly seen bloody.

Two gangsters receive several bloodless blows, one has a bottle smashed on his head. His hand is hit with a sledgehammer. And he is shot in the knees twice.

A policeman shoves a criminal's cheek against a glass table, pushes him roughly, and hits him in the chest with a rifle.

A SWAT team shoots a man through the windsheild several times when he tries to escape in a car. You later see his bloody head leaning onto a driving wheel briefly.

A man shoots another man twice, once in the jaw, once in the temple. You see blood wounds in both places and there's a post behind him with splattered blood on it for a few brief seconds, seen from a distance.

5 SWAT men are killed in a shoot out.

A man shoots another man in the chest twice.


139 uses of 'fuck', 18 of 'shit', 6 of 'ass(hole)', 3 of 'b-tch', 2 of 'dick', and 1 of 'cunt' and 'cocksucker', as well as 6 uses of "Jesus Christ", 4 of "Goddamn", and 2 of 'hell'.

A woman is arrested for DWI with a child in the car after crashing into a light pole (a man says she tested positive for cocaine, Oxycontin and alcohol.)

A woman carries a small vial of what is implied to be drugs (she offers some to a man who turns her down.)

Police tell a man that drugs and money have been found in his house and he will be serving jail time.

On multiple occasions men and women drink alcoholic drinks at bars and at a picnic.

A man is seen holding a cigarette, and a man discusses how another man had stolen cartons of cigarettes and drank a case of beer.

Strong, gritty violence. The head-beating and knee-shooting scenes could be hard to watch.

Some intense robberies and police chases.

When committing robbery, the men wear scary-looking masks.
