Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this remake of a 1972 hit man action-drama is extraordinarily violent, with dozens of shootings, beatings, stabbings, stranglings, and killings, with lots of blood. Language is strong (including many uses of "f--k" and "s--t"), and there are some pretty graphic sexual situations (with breast/buttock nudity). One character drinks hard liquor and smokes incessantly (other, minor characters are drug dealers and junkies). The characters have few redeeming or admirable qualities, and there are few consequences for their destructive actions.

Sexual Content

A sex scene includes grinding/thrusting; editing covers up most of the nudity, though the woman's breast and buttocks are glimpsed. Later, characters have rough sex in the alley of a bar, but no sensitive body parts are shown. A porn video with two naked women kissing is briefly seen on a computer screen. One character allows himself to be picked up by a sexual predator in order to kill him.


Constant action violence, with dozens of shootings, stabbings, beatings, stranglings, explosions, various other brutal killings, and lots of blood. The hero threatens to grind up a teen girl's arm in a garbage disposal. These acts are shown with few or no consequences.


Very strong language includes multiple uses of "f--k" and "s--t" in various permutations. Other words include "p---y," "damn," "goddamn" and "Jesus Christ" (used as an exclamation).

Social Behavior

The characters' destructive actions -- which cause many deaths -- have no (or few) consequences. They live selfish, solitary lives and are cynical, trusting no one -- not even each other.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

One character is often shown drinking hard liquor and/or smoking cigarettes. He gets sloppy drunk in several scenes. A minor character is a junkie and is shown getting his fix. Another minor character is a drug dealer.
