MPAA Rated R for brutal violence, grisly images, strong sexual content/nudity, language throughout and some drug use

Sex & Nudity

  • Full breast nudity in multiple scenes. This movie is very graphic.
  • The film contains some scenes depicting upper body nudity in a sexual context.
  • These include a club scene featuring some topless women in the background, as well as a scene depicting the filming of an adult movie where two topless women can be seen in the background.
  • In addition, there is a scene featuring side-profile upper body nudity of a woman who is implied to be performing oral sex on a man.

Violence & Gore

  • There are some scenes of violence depicted with bloodletting in the film.
  • One of the stronger scenes depicts a man plunging an object into the neck of his victim, resulting in blood streaming from the wound, and another scene that depicts a man bashing the face of his victim repeatedly till it is bloody.


  • I counted 88 f-words, but I probably missed some so I'd say 90+ f-words, frequently paired with "mother". There's also very frequent utterances of other milder language.
  • The film contains frequent uses of the expletive "f**k", as well as an utterance of the stronger expletive "motherf**ker".

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • There is a brief scene depicting drug sniffing in the film.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • 'Message from a King' revolves around a man, Jacob King, who arrives from South Africa to look for his younger sister in Los Angeles. After discovering that she has been brutally murdered, he sets out to avenge her death.
