Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A homeless man taking refuge on the ship is shot several times after his shaving razor is perceived as a weapon (the actual threat he posed is debateable). Instead of getting him help, as he is still alive, he is wrapped in a shower curtain and shot in the head. As he is unrelated to the events of the story, this may be upsetting to some.

  • A man puts a gun in his own mouth. He does not end up shooting.
