Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the film includes scenes of explicit violence, involving shooting, explosions, and fistfights, much of it in slow motion to emphasize blood spurting or faces grimacing and initiated by policemen trying to kill a witness to a corrupt cop's case. The protagonist is a severe alcoholic, so he spends much of the first third of the movie drinking, looking for a drink, or showing signs of needing a drink (shaking and coughing, with sickly pallor). Characters use the f-word a couple of times (one muffled), as well as other curse words (s-word, n-word).

Sexual Content

Not applicable

Violence

Explosions, shootings and shoot-outs, fistfights, chase scenes; these are generic action scenes, using frequent slow motion and showing little emotional consequence (bodies falling and vehicles exploding), except when Eddie is shot and Jack tends to his bloody wound.

Language

A couple of f-words, s-word, "hell," "ass," "bitch," one use of n-word by a black character.

Social Behavior

Corrupt cops, thuggish murderers, and shifty types are prevalent.

Consumerism

Alcohol brands visible.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Alcoholic cop drinks repeatedly through the first third of the film; in a bar, anonymous characters have drinks before them; on the sidewalk, background character smokes.
