Violence & Gore

  • During a fight, John Thornton is shot in the left hip by Hal. Hal is then pushed into a burning building by a Buck the dog. The building then collapses on him. We don't see the shot but we do hear it and we see the wound. Thornton later dies on screen of his injury.

  • It may be upsetting some at how the bad guy is overall cruel to the pack of dogs
  • Many times when a character seems to be dead, they are just weakened. Two deaths are near the end. It is not graphic but there is some gun violence
