The portrayal of infliction of pain and injury is depicted with some detail of blood and gore, but is not prolonged or frequent.

The film contains portrayals of violence where the protagonist uses firearms to attack his enemies at close-range and kills them by shooting them in the head.

The scenes of violence also depict details such as bloodshed and bullet wounds.

There is a strong scene involving man snapping another man's neck and then awkwardly waving to his neighbors in a humorous manner.

Other scenes of violence include a brief sequence of torture, where a nail is driven through a man's hand and a character who uses a wooden pole to inflict injury on himself by hitting his shin repeatedly until the pole breaks into two.

As the level of violence is impactful and contains some detail, it would be more appropriate for an older teen audience.

1 use of 'motherfucker', 4 uses of 'bitch', infrequent uses of 'fuck', 'shit', 'damn'.

Emotionally intense scenes such as a woman leaving her husband and kids, self harm inflicting acts, a violent fight between brothers for personal reasons, etc.

While the film is thoroughly dark, the protagonist's social awkwardness provides humor and levity at times.

Rated R for strong violence and language throughout
