Sex & Nudity


Minor nudity: Flashbacks show a naked woman rolling around in her bed. Excerpts from the flash back scene later resurface as video animations. During a gun battle in a porno theater, a fully nude woman can be seen on the movie screen (usually out of focus) and moaning is heard. One short sex scene with kissing, breasts shown and moaning. A man punches a woman in the face, throws her on a bed and attempts to rape her before he is stopped.

Violence & Gore


Numerous action scenes involving hand-to-hand combat, knives, and guns, with many people being killed, both villainous and innocent alike, often with very bloody results. Some of the more notable examples include: A man flips another man over a bed into a wall, yanks a pillowcase over his head, and beats him to death by slamming his elbow into the man's head over and over (the pillowcase becomes soaked with blood and the man's arm twitches indicating he is dead). A woman is struck in the face with a chain, leaving her very bloody; later, a man briefly tortures her by shooting her in the kneecap (with bloody results). Two men fight on a rooftop with punches, kicks and throws; they get dangerously close to the edge of the roof and one falls to his death (his bloodied body is seen on the pavement below). During a brainwashing sequence, a man is forced to imagine an industrial sawblade descending toward his face; blood splatters on the blade and the man screams in pain (although nothing actually happens to him). A man and a woman break into a hotel room and slap another woman around, demanding to know where a second man is; when she can't answer them, the man throws her on the bed and attempts to rape her, but is stopped when she stabs him in the back with a small knife.

Frightening & Intense Scenes
