One scene features a couple having sex in a car, seen from the outside, and another shows them kissing passionately. There's no nudity, though a woman appears in her underwear.



The film has quite a lot of violence, and some of it is horribly gruesome. There are plenty of standard-issue combat sequences that include firefights, explosions, and bloody deaths. Additional scenes show wartime atrocities being committed and their terrible aftermath.



Lots of swearing. Sam uses "f--k" in about every third sentence. Also uses of "s--t", "c--ksucker", "p---y", "damn", "hell", "ass", and "butt". Sam sometimes swears in front of his young daughter.



Several scenes in bars with people drinking beer, doing shots, and getting drunk. Some of the characters shoot up heroin on screen.


MPAA:
Rated R for violent content including disturbing images, language, some drug use and a scene of sexuality
