MPAA Rated PG-13 for violence and disturbing images

Sex & Nudity

  • Male topless nudity.
  • People kiss, and a man and a woman showing her back hold each other and kiss.
  • A shirtless man and his wife talk, and then kiss on the bed. She lays back and he lays on top of her, they kiss. The scene then rapidly ends.
  • A man has an affair with a woman who is not his wife, and this leads to arguments. We are told many times that the man and woman sleep together, and in one scene we see them post-coitus in bed. She is obviously nude but covered by bed sheets, and he is clothed. We don't see anything, and we see them kiss and talk.
  • No sex or nudity of major concern.

Violence & Gore

  • The tone of this movie is serious, not comedic. Two characters are dueling throughout the movie, sabotaging each other, often ending in serious injury. Some blood can be seen at times, but violent scenes are generally not gory or explicit (the movie is PG-13). See details below.
  • A man shoots a man in the chest, the man gasps and slumps to the ground dead. We see some blood on his shirt.
  • A woman hangs herself (we see her feet swinging off the ground).
  • A man has a noose placed around his neck, a hatch opens beneath his feet, and we hear a crack.
  • A bird gets crushed (quietly). We see its bloody and mutilated body later. At another point, a bird is smashed again. The camera cuts away just in time, but we see a blood splatter.
  • A man shoots another man's hand, taking off two fingers (we briefly see the bloody digits).
  • A man falls through stairs and into a box where he is trapped, the box is nailed shut and then buried underground (the man in the box shoots through it and strikes a man on the outside in the arm). However the man is soon dug up and rescued.
  • A man is held by police with a nightstick across his throat, and he thrashes and struggles to get away.
  • A man shoots another man in the chest. (This is a different scene than the one previously mentioned). There is a small and very brief spurt of blood. This is extremely hard to catch and the camera cuts as soon as it happens.


  • "Sh*t" is said once.
  • "*ss" is said.
  • 4 mild obscenities.
  • Some minor name-calling, such as fool and stupid.
  • 4 religious exclamations.
  • "Bloody" is used many times
  • "B*stard" is used a few times.
  • 1 F word very brief

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Men are shown drinking alcohol in a pub.
  • People drink alcohol in several scenes, and people drink champagne in a celebratory scene.
  • Two magicians stick messages to each other onto the bottom of glasses of beer.
  • One man is described as being perpetually drunk and is shown comically stumbling around and slurring his words.
  • A man notices that something is upsetting his wife when she starts drinking more often at home.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A dead body (the man that fell into the water tank) is shown for confirmation in a autopsy room.
  • A man falls into a water tank that locks (he struggles to get out but cannot) and a man tries to break the glass but cannot before the man drowns (we see the dead man on an autopsy table, his eyes are open and his body is pale). We see bits of this scene multiple times.
  • This movie could described best as: intense, serious and grim.


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • A man has two fingers cut off with a chisel, which is not shown on camera (just the chisel being lined up). The wounded digits are shown later.
  • A woman's fingers break by getting caught in some mechanism. Some blood shown, but this scene ends very rapidly. The woman's screaming, though, might be disturbing to certain viewers.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The finger-removals are intense and realistic, despite their brevity.
  • A woman is lowered into a tank of water, the lid of the tank is locked, she is unable to get out and she thrashes and struggles. It is later implied that this has happened several times.
  • There's a scene where one of the main characters is hanged. We see him drop and hear his neck break, but the camera cuts in that same instant.
  • A room full of men drowned in tanks of water is shown.
