Sex & Nudity

The main plot of the movie is tracking down a sexual predator, and the evidence of his crimes are shown with sexual images and flashbacks. Women prostitutes are seen at nightclubs in low-cut tops and short skirts, lightly kissing and caressing male customers- to tempt them into sex.

There is a narrated flashback of a man attacking a woman. He beats her up, bends her over a table, holds a knife at her neck, rapes her, and then it is said that he kills her.

One stripper in underwear sits on a (clothed) man's lap. Due to the dialogue, we know they later have sex.

Although they are divorced, it's implied by a sexual scene that Mick and Maggie still go to each other time to time for sex. The two passionately kiss and caress and strip each other down to their underwear, lower onto a bed and continue to grope and move sexually. We see Mick begin to reach his hand into Maggie's underwear.

Mick and others crudely mention sexual encounters that involve main characters.

Violence & Gore

The flashbacks of the movie are the most violent, they show an unknown male rapist assualting a woman by hitting, kicking, dragging, and slamming her around. Furniture smashes, vodka bottles break over people's heads, and people are brutally beaten.

A woman is shown afterward, with several brusies and cuts on her face.

The dead body of a man is briefly seen, blood seen slightly around his head.

A brief shootout, that leaves two characters shot, and the only blood that is seen is bloodied clothing.

A gang roughs up a man by kicking him and whacking him with baseball bats to hospitalize him.

When the lawyer returns home, His client's mum shot him and he returned fire, killing her

Through a informative flashback, woman's corpse was seen being stabbed repeatedly though briefly


3 or 4 uses of f*ck. Many uses of sh*t, ass, asshole, etc.

Mention of drugs. Tons of drinking.

Talk of rape throughout.

Several disturbing discussions of attacks and mutilation of women.

The last half of the movie is very intense.
