Violence & Gore

  • In an imagined scene, one of some man's goons shoots another man offshoot, two men are shown lying dead. The bodies are placed in a car, gasoline is poured on it, and that's ignited, resulting in a fire and explosion.
  • Should be moderate, little bloodshed but not a lot however most the deaths have no blood or is offshoot it is mostly implied
  • A man is chased by officers and flees, another one steals a motorcycle and picks him up. In another scene, a man with knife chases another man on railroad tracks, they both run as much as they could until they use up their energy, one getting chased waits for another man in a dark tunnel and hits him in the back of the head with a piece of wood (the man is shown bleeding from the back of his head dripping on his back but alive).

More struggling ensues with another joining in, with the first being shot (we see more blood splatter). He then asks for the gun and shoots two more thugs dead when the elevator door opens. Another goon then aims his gun at them, but hits that man over the back of the head with a large piece of wood, knocking him out.
  • A bouncer won't let two junkies into a concert, eventually punching both to the street. some man then approaches him, acting innocent at first, but then repeatedly stabs the man with a pencil all over his body. He then kicks him on the sidewalk (the man flinches and yells and falls to the ground where he is kicked and struck repeatedly with a garbage can lid until he is unconscious).
  • A man shoots a guy in the stomach (he survives).
  • Three thieves are driving a car, which a large truck, occupied by two Russian henchmen, crashes into, the men break the panoramic roof with an axe and grab a chained suitcase, the people in the car try fighting the thieves who pull him in and the other man breaks the windshield and uses mist spray to spray the men and pull him out. , they regain consciousness and fight with men who are trying to steal a brief case from them: they chase the men, they fight, they speed away in a car, crash into a store window and we see the car occupants with bloody faces but the henchmen jump back on, so the car crashes again. One of the henchmen struggles with a man, but is then shot repeatedly (he survives since he has a bullet-proof vest on), while the other one is hit repeatedly with a golf club. This sequence continues with a long on-foot chase. A man holding knives jumps on the roof of a moving car, one knife stabs through the roof and nearly cuts the driver, and the car crashes into a parked car throwing off the man on the roof. A car is struck hard in the side by a truck (we see the passengers being thrown around. The man then comes back up and has his knife stuck on the front of the car and the people in the car leave to run.

A man is struck repeatedly with a baseball bat, and then a golf club (we hear the blows and he falls to the floor).

  • A man is tied to a chair, he is raised into the air by a chain and lowered into water and we understand that he is killed (we do not see anything more). Two men are tied to chairs and gagged, and one man's chair is lifted into the air over water while another man talks about crayfish being in the water and that they will eat him; the man is lowered into the water, and he is pulled back up and has a few crayfish on him (he is screaming but doesn't appear to be injured).
