The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • A man is shot in the crotch. Another man is then shot in the head. We see the bloody wound and blood on the wall behind him. Though intense, this scene only exists in the imagination of a main character.

Frightening & Intense Scenes
