Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie is a disturbing chronicle of psychopath. It has graphic violence and unnerving suspense. The voiceover narration of the main character is filled with obscenities and racial slurs. A young teen prostitute is a central character, and she has affection for her pimp, which is made clear. The final shootout scene is bloody and shocking, and it's followed by a somewhat confounding epilogue where the police praise main character's violent actions.

Violence

Fetishization of guns and a graphically violent shootout.
