Brief mild sexual references and innuendo!

A husband and his wife hug and kiss briefly, then he reaches around her and taking her buttocks in his hands, lifts her to sit on a kitchen counter, kisses her neck and the scene ends (sex implied)

A club scene features women wearing strapless and some backless clingy dresses that reveal cleavage as they dance close to men on a crowded dance floor; some of them are wiggling their hips; one woman with her back to a seated man twists and writhes close to his lap and chest.

This movie contains some intense, highly frightening sequences of violence, in which there are a huge amount of implied deaths and injuries.

A man is shot three times in a car. Blood sprays on a car window.

Two men are shot to death in a car. The first man is seen being hit in the shoulder, then graphically through the head. The next man is hit twice before falling out of the vehicle, he is then stood over and shot repeatedly. Very graphic and bloody.

A young woman is strangled to death, not directly seen but choking sounds are heard and surrounding characters are disturbed by it.

Two men are getting beaten in an alley but the scene cuts out quickly.

Dead bodies are seen covered in blood.

A gang member brutally punches a man to death.

The most disturbing scene in the entire film consists on a man choking another man with a rope near the end. The victim's body is trembling, and we can clearly see his eyes almost popping out and blood dripping out his nose and mouth disgustingly. The scene is extremely graphic, bloody and disturbing.

254 uses of 'Fuck', multiple uses of 'Goddamn & Goddamnit'.

Regular use of mild profanity such as 'Shit' and 'Piss'

Reference's to American-Italians in a manner some may find offensive

Drugs are referenced too when talking about drug dealers and gang leaders.

A man is seen doing cocaine in a restroom. Very brief.

Contains brutal violence and disturbing images of murders and crime.

(Can people either follow the rules with regards to populating these pages or leave them alone! Kissing someone on the forehead does not need to be listed in the Sex & Nudity section etc!!!!!!)

Rated R for brutal violence, language throughout, some sexual references and brief drug use
