Some kissing.

A man touches a woman while attacking her.

A man kisses his friend's wife and wants touch her but she pushes him away.

Some talk about fucking a friend's wife.

Kind of a heist thriller, so there is violence but blood is limited.

A woman is brutally beaten, and accidentally thrown into a wall rendering her unconscious. Another man threatens young children with a gun. In another scene, many people are shot and killed; semi bloody. Some hand-to-hand combat and a few car crashes also take place.

A clash scene between the armed men and the police officers. One of the armed men shot in the head, blood spurts, as well as the police.

The group of men threatens the main character and one other with their guns.

The language is used almost as frequently as Wahlberg's other movie Lone Survivor.

Close to 65-70 uses of the F-word including 1 shocking use of "jesus f***", 6 uses of "dick", 20 of "shit". 1 brief use of "c--t."

The plot of the film has to do with the main character being forced to steal and smuggle cocaine to save his brother's life.

The scene where the main character's wife is thown at a wall is disturbing. It may frighten some viewers.

Rated R for violence, pervasive language and brief drug use
