Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this documentary features hard-hitting quad rugby scenes. Shot from multiple angles (subjective and objective), the games and practices are rough, exciting, and sometimes unsettling. The players use strong language, drink and smoke, and make slangy references to sexual acts. The film includes some shots of missing limbs, as well as footage of a player in the hospital (and briefly in surgery), following a heart attack.
