Recommended rating: R for violence, language, and brief sexual situations.

A woman is seen standing topless at the bathroom sink, her breasts are by her reflection in the mirror and her seen when she looks at her husband and closes the door.

A man and a woman are forced to have sex while a man, woman, and child watches. The woman's arms are covering her breasts but the sides of their bodies are scene, once finished they cover their bodies with sheets. Once the woman and child leaves the husband and wife get up, we briefly see the woman's breast as they put underwear on. The man then forces the woman to unzip his pants, he then orders her to get on top of him and act out sex as if he was her husband; all while the man is pointing the shotgun at the husband. She interrupts it before it gets any worse.

The movie is very intense and disturbing at times, the characters are in constant peril. Some people are held at gunpoint throughout some of the movie.

A kid holds a knife up to another child's neck multiple times, later the kid holds a gun to the child's head.

A dog is killed offscreen, we can hear the dog whimper.

A man is shot in the side of the head, we see blood splatter against the wall and later a pool of blood surrounding the body.

A man is hit in the head with a shotgun.

While forcing a woman to act like they are having sex (see sex & nudity), the man is very rough with the woman (violently grabbing the girls face, etc)

A man is shot in the leg, we see some blood squirt out from the entry wound.

A man is shot in the head, we see moderate amount of blood splatter out the exit wound

Around 10-15 f-words and other mild profanities are barely scattered throughout.

Name calling (stupid asshole, liar, bitch and whore.)

2 characters smoke and the first character is shown enticing the second one into smoking. Wine is shown being drank and the character of the mother appears very drunk.

The whole movie is very intense and involves many perilous scenes that could upset viewers. The theme of this movie is identity theft, violence, being held hostage, kidnapping/brainwashing, and murder. This may be very hard to watch for some viewers.

A child that has died is referenced repeatedly. This may be bothersome to watch for parents.

There are many scenes that involve peril to the young boy, with intention of killing him. This could upset some viewers.

It is implied a dog was shot. You hear the gunshot and a dog yelp but you do not see the dog being shot. Still, this may be hard to watch for animal enthusiasts.
