Sex & Nudity

A young man and woman are seen having vigorous sex, with lots of thrusting and moaning. He is topless and has his shorts and underwear pulled down so his bare buttocks are briefly seen. There is little female nudity.

A woman sits on a couch topless in one scene. Breasts are shown in a short scene.

A grainy camera scene of clothed rape.

Some sexual references.

Violence & Gore

Short bloody scenes of shooting, stabbing, and fighting throughout.

A knee capping shot, a man is whipped, and his eye is briefly seen dangling out, he is then shown from a grainy lens being set on fire, a man is suddenly shot in the throat and his body hidden in the back seat of his truck, a man's hand is stabbed, and several shootings during a stand off.


Many uses of 'fuck'/'shit', a couple of 'bitch' and 'whore', 2 crude uses of 'ass', and 1 of 'banging' and 'panties in a knot'. As well as some Spanish profanity.

The film is about drug cartels, smuggling mostly marijuana. Marijuana and it's use shown throughout the film, and cocaine in a few scenes.

A major aspect of the movie is violence and brutality.
