Sex & Nudity

  • Several scenes referencing sex or showing sex. Frequent sequences with prositituion visible (young girls standing around sketchy areas and on the other hand, brief sex scenes including threesomes with erotic dancing). Some scenes are set in strip clubs.
  • The main character's partner is a sex addict; this is brought up in conversation a number of times.
  • A woman's boobs are shown for about three seconds on some surveillance footage. The quality makes the nudity easy to miss.

Violence & Gore

  • Whilst the action is infrequent, it is still bloody and brutal. A sequence where a knife is stabbed into a man's eye (middle view seen) and man slams his head into a glass table cause it to go in deeper. Very brutal. Injury detail heavily visible but under 6 seconds.


  • One, possibly two uses of 'fuck'. A few uses of 'son of a bitch'.
  • Very little overall.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Two central characters smoke Cuban cigars once.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A shootout reminiscent of one in 'The Raid' is quite brutal. Many law enforcement officers are relentlessly mowed down when they are ambushed. Could be slightly upsetting for some viewers.

Violence & Gore

  • The movie opens and closes with a shootout. The first one results in the main character sustaining bullet wounds to his shoulders and stomach. The second one is not as brutal, but lengthier.
