Sex & Nudity

  • 6/10
  • Two men and two women have sex in the same motel room. The scene only lasts 5 seconds. No close-up images. it's shown from far away. Not Graphic
  • A fully nude man is thrown over the couch (genitalia and buttocks shown, though the scene only lasts about 2 seconds)
  • The Sex/Nudity in this film isn't as bad as it sounds.

Violence & Gore

  • The violence is not as bad as everyone says. Overall 20/50
  • 10/10
  • A police officer is shot in the top of the head and buckets of blood spew from the wound, with some of it getting on the face of another man.
  • A couple are killed after witnessing the cop shooting. After crashing their car, the man is shot in the back while trying to run away (no blood is shown). The woman is then shot off-screen while pinned in the car.
  • While having sex, a man is attacked violently. He is kicked on the floor, and then whipped and strangled with a belt. During this attack, a man is slammed against a wall to the point of unconsciousness, and a woman is kicked in the back.
  • A man is shot in the chest, with the feathers of his down coat flying everywhere; the second man then shoots his attacker in the cheek. The bullet grazes the first man, we don't see the impact, but when he covers the wound with his hand, his hand becomes covered in blood. The first then shoots the second man multiple times off-screen. As the first man drives away, he shoots a gate attendant off-screen, though the aftermath of it is briefly shown with a little blood on the wall. The wounded man's cheek and hands are covered in blood throughout the rest of the movie.
  • A woman who has been tied up in a chair is killed (off-screen); blood splatter is shown on a wall.
  • A man is killed with an axe off-screen. Later, a police officer finds the killer feeding the man's remains into a wood chipper, with blood and some flesh covering the snow on the left side of the screen. The person who killed the man can be briefly seen pushing the man's dismembered leg deeper into the wood chipper. This is very bloody.
  • A man is shot in the back of the leg while running from the cops, with a little blood on the wound.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • 2/10

  • The wood chipper scene is the most graphic in the movie.
  • Total Estimation: 20/50
