  • Some characters drink and smoke.
  • Numerous talks of drug deals.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Some of the violence is intense and unexpected, although much of it is subdued and plays like something from Dirty Harry.
  • The movie has a rather dark atmosphere since it focuses on the underworld of Chinatown.
  • The scene with the severed head, though not too graphic, might be the most disturbing thing in the movie.
