2/10 A disembodied penis is briefly seen a couple of times, not graphic and slightly cartoonish. A disembodied arse is also seen, for a longer period of time. It is said that an old woman hires male prostitutes.

10/10 A lot of graphic yet comical violence. Many desembodied body parts are seen, none look very realistic, but many bloody stumps are seen where the limbs used to be. A man is shot in the neck, he bleeds graphically for a while. Four people are shot within a minute, two slightly more comical, one rather disturbing, and one very graphic. The main character accidentally kills two people, the first non graphically with a pair of scissors in the chest, and the next with a broom. The broom hits the man with a bone breaking sound effect, and he falls over as blood pools around him. The film is graphically violent, but quite comical.

10/10 Frequent use of fuck and shit, it is set in Glasgow after all.

3/10 Characters drink alcohol at points.

7/10 Overall: 34/50 Despite the graphic and disturbing content, the film has quite a light tone. People could be disturbed that the main character is a murderer. The film is bloody and violent, I wouldn't have been surprised if it was issued an 18 from the BBFC. But I think 15 is a good rating, because of the light tone.
