Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this London-set crime/gangster drama about a reformed criminal trying to "go straight" is filled with arguing and fighting, as well as many violent killings and plenty of blood. Language is incredibly strong, with "f--k" and "c--t" used almost constantly. Characters regularly smoke cigarettes and drink alcohol, and two supporting characters smoke pot; one is shown to be addicted to drugs and alcohol. There's also some topless female nudity and some kissing and suggested sex between the main characters.

Sexual Content

In a nightclub, topless women are shown, and other (clothed) women perform sexy dances. The main male and female characters kiss and are seen lying in bed together, though no nudity is shown. Secondary characters are seen preparing for "kinky" sex, with the man handcuffed to a bed and the woman wearing a slinky outfit. There's also heavy innuendo; a man makes a vulgar "licking" motion in one scene.

Violence

Lots of bloody, realistic fights, with characters punching and hitting each other and spattering blood. Several characters are killed violently via shooting, stabbing, beating, and pummeling. Dead bodies are shown. The main character punches a woman and knocks her out.

Language

Very strong, constant language, with multiple uses of "f--k," "s--t," and "c--t," plus "ass" and "Jesus Christ" (as an exclamation).

Social Behavior

London Boulevard suggests that transitioning from a life of crime to one of legitimacy is next to impossible, even if you're genuinely determined. The criminals in this movie seem successful, and the good people seem downtrodden.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Nearly every character smokes cigarettes throughout the movie. The main character's sister also seems to have a drinking and/or drug problem. Most characters drink from time to time: scotch, beer, and vodka (some occurs at a big party). Two secondary characters smoke pot in two different scenes. Some gangsters appear drunk and/or high in one violent sequence. Reference to Methadone.
