- A fully-clothed sex scene, lasting about 3 minutes.
- We see a man's butt as he runs through some tall grass.
Violence & Gore
- The violence in this movie is as graphic in nature as say, one scene of Transformers. There is basically only offscreen deaths, and the only blood is on a cut, it's not splattering all over the screen.
- A tiny amount of blood is shown when a character's arm is cut open in a car crash.
- An injured driver hangs out of a car window after a road accident. He has blood on his head and face.
- Max is shot in the knee. The bloody wound is shown briefly.
- Max's arm is run over by a motorcycle. It happens quick and there are no details, although he grunts in pain briefly.
- A severely burned hand is shown for a few seconds.
- Several car chases, many resulting in crashes.
- One use of asshole
- hell- 2, shit- 2, ass- 1, bitch- 1, fuck- 1, crap- 1
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
- There is some minor drinking.
- A man smokes a cigar
Frightening & Intense Scenes
- Max is shot in the knee and has his arm run over briefly while trying to reach his gun.
- Some intense chases and scenes of the gang terrorizing the small city.
- A young man and woman are terrorized by a motorcycle gang who violently destroy their car while they are inside it. They are dragged out and it is implied that both are raped offscreen - a member of the gang forcefully grabs the woman so that she is straddling him, and the man is later seen running away and completely naked.
Violence & Gore
- When the leader of the biker gang is run over by a truck at the film's climax, there is a cut to a long shot which appears to show some of his severed limbs lying on the road.
- Officer Jim Goose is killed when Johnny throws a barrel full of flammable oil in his car, and Toecutter throws a match, setting him alight. We only see the the initial shot of Goose being set on fire, and the scene quickly cuts away to a new scene, however, when Max visits the hospital, we do see a quick shot of Goose's burnt hand. We do not see the rest of the body.
