Sex & Nudity

  • No sex or nudity at all throughout the film, only mild references.
  • Rick mentions a rape taking place. Nothing is shown and it's pretty brief. More implicit then it sounds.
  • A man says another man would be "sucking his dick." (Meant to be comedic)
  • Body of dead women in a lace bra from back and sides. Lasts maybe a 30 sec. No nudity visible
  • It is heavily implied that a man pressures a woman into sleeping with him in order to keep her job.

Violence & Gore

  • There is a scene where a woman's leg is seen cut. She is bleeding but she bandages herself up.
  • A man punches a security guard and robs him.
  • A man is knocked unconscious then re-positioned somewhere else so that it looks like he was knocked cold from a fight. Not graphic, no blood shown.
  • A man is seen being shot in the chest briefly.
  • We see a man with a bleeding foot.
  • The aftermath of a car crash is shown, with one of the victims' with a bleeding neck. (He is alive.)
  • We see footage of a group shooting three policeman in a fast food restaurant. (The security camera footage is very blurry and grainy, so it's heard to make out.)

Profanity

  • 50 uses of "fuck", 21 uses of "shit." 5 uses of "bitch." 7 uses of "crap." 2 uses of "dick." 1 use of "Jesus Christ."

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • There is some casual drinking in a restaurant setting.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The whole film deals with a television news network who is shown exploiting people's emotions and fears by showing graphic crimes.
  • Louis gets stressed and starts screaming in the bathroom.
  • There is an intense car chase towards the end of the film.
  • The crime scenes shown can be frightening to some.
  • It's implied that a man is looking at a dead body, we never see the corpse.
  • This film's tone has a disturbing feeling even though there really isn't anything disturbing and may cause unease in the viewer. The lead character seems quite antisocial and sociopathic, with strong shifts in his demeanor.
