Sex & Nudity

  • Two women are seen kissing passionately in the background during a conversation involving one of the hitman's targets in his penthouse, it is implied they do this in part for the target's pleasure. However, this is treated with discretion as for most of the scene, the act depicted is blurred in the shot itself, and when it does focus on them, they stop.
  • At a nightclub, many women dance suggestively, twirling their hips as the respective shots linger on them before shifting focus to the main characters. In this scene, there are tight split-second shots shown as part of a montage on large panels with women suggestively fondling each other.

Violence & Gore

  • A man shoots two other men; one lies on the ground, wounded, and the attacker shoots him in the face, killing him.
  • A man shoots another man several times in the head, neck and torso (Bloody bullet wounds are shown, and blood squirts).
  • Several corpses are seen in a morgue with gory wounds.
  • A corpse falls from a window onto the hood of a taxi cab (We see blood spray on the windshield). The body remains there, bleeding, until two men remove it and put it in the trunk of the cab. The blood is then doused off by water.
  • A man draws a gun and shoots a man twice in the head at point-blank range (Blood squirts).
  • A man crashes his car purposefully, wounding him and his passenger, who escapes. A police officer tries to arrest the driver but he attacks the officer, handcuffing him and holding him at gunpoint before running off.
  • There's a large shootout/fight in a club, in which Vincent and Max make their way through the patrons so that Vincent can find his target. He systematically takes out his target's security, brutally breaking one's neck after kicking him, and slicing another with his knife. Cops arrive and they and Vincent, along with other bodyguards exchange fire, but Vincent manages to kill his target and escape.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Throughout the movie, the main character is held hostage by an assassin, and is forced to drive him to each of his "hits".
