Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this flawed but live-wire drama of two brothers caught up in a violence-ridden SoCal skinhead lifestyle raises some important points, but the mixture of very R-rated realism (strong language, hideous violence, and frank sex) makes this a very guarded choice for anyone but older teens and up.

Sexual Content

A prison rape and a lusty skinhead girlfriend.

Violence

Numerous fights and particularly brutal murders.

Language

Very Strong language.

Social Behavior

One character, seemingly an unredeemable racist and criminal, completely cleans up his act. Others are either virtuous (but ineffective), or entirely evil.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Drinking and drug-dealing.

  • Age appropriate
