Violence & Gore

  • The last 20 minutes of the film is a very long prolonged shoot-out sequence. There are people being blown up by explosions, many getting shot (tiny amounts of blood is shown), and a helicopter is seen crashing into a building, we see it falling down in slow motion leading to a huge explosion when it hits the ground.
  • A man is thrown off a roof into the path of a helicopter and is shredded to death by the rotors. We see blood and gore splater for a quick second before it cuts away. Most graphic moment in the film.
