MPAA Rated R for violence and some language

Sex & Nudity

  • A woman propositions a man as she had just broke up with her boyfriend.
  • A man feels between another person's legs as the man knows that a gun is kept hidden there.
  • There is no male nudity.
  • One woman is needlessly seen in a thong and another gratuitously has only pasties on her breasts. There is, however, no comparable male nudity.
  • In one scene, a man grabs a woman's breasts and says "My God, they're real."
  • There are many references to sex (e.g. those kind of women that offers themselves to men for sex).

Violence & Gore

  • A couple of people are seen being executed in electric chairs, with their bodies twitching excessively, though it's only shown for a few seconds.
  • Mildly intense action violence with little blood. Many people are shot, but die in a generally non-gory way. However, in one scene, a man's head is chopped off by another man wielding a giant scissors-like cutter. The head-lopping itself occurs offscreen, although a small amount of blood is shown spraying.


  • Mild, infrequent use of the F-word and the S-word. 5 F words

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A man smokes a cigar.
  • A man smokes one cigarette.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Rated R for strong violence throughout, and language.
  • Frequent violence, sexual references, and profanity may be disturbing to sensitive viewers.
  • The movie is set in a dystopian Los Angeles in the year 2013. The odd-looking characters and scenes of chaos and ruin may be disturbing to sensitive viewers.
