Violence & Gore

  • In a flashback scene we hear a woman's voice saying "please don't kill me", followed by a close-up on a gun firing. This scene is replayed several times in the film with increasingly more detail shown. Her dead body is also seen in these flashbacks.
  • Regular shootouts and several scenes of close-quarters combat, both hand-to-hand and with weapons, resulting in several deaths.
