MPAA Rated R for pervasive language and strong violence.

Sex & Nudity

  • Other than a few kisses nothing to be concerned about.

Violence & Gore

  • Realistic and rather infrequent violence. There are some scenes of killing but not that many. Tame for an R rating. No gore, just a little blood when people get shot
  • A character shoots another in the back of the head twice. Blood splatters on the wall. He then takes his body to an incinerator, his body is briefly seen being burned.
  • A couple of cars are blown up throughout.
  • A man is beaten up at a grocery store, he gets battered through a door and his hand is stomped on several times
  • A man is strangled, his body is then thrown into a tree shredder, lots of blood and gore is shown spraying from the shredder. This is the bloodiest scene in the film.
  • Two soldiers are shot in the chest, lots of blood sprays.
  • A man is shot 2 times in the head, blood sprays onto the wall and blood pools beneath his head. A photograph of his dead body is shown in the news paper.
  • A man is shot in the head and face, lots of blood spurts out and this scene is shown in slow motion
  • A man enters a restaurant and shoots two men seated at a table with women and children; one man limps toward the door and out to the sidewalk where he is shot two more times (we see blood spray from his back) and he lies dead on the ground.
  • A man is tackled to ground and beaten about the face. This happens twice, one time in prison, the other in a restaurant.
  • A character is shot in the face, he is then shot 3 more times. Blood splatters on the wall, and blood pools beneath his head. We see the graphic bullet wound and blood on his dead body.
  • Two hitmen walk into a barber shop and shoot a man to death offscreen. The bloody dead body is later seen in the papers
  • A man slices a chickens throat with a razor, blood sprays onto the man's face.


  • 136 uses of "fuck", 18 uses of "cocksucker", 40 uses of "shit", and other expletives.
  • Jimmy Hoffa says "cocksucker" constantly

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Smoking and Drinking Throughout

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Infrequent bloody violence.
  • "The Irishman" is still a violent movie but compared to other Martin Scorsese's gangster films like "Casino" and "Goodfellas", it is much tamer.
  • The overall tone of the film is incredibly bleak, even when the mood is lighter it's still faintly sorrowful, especially the last half hour.
