Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie isn't for kids. It includes frequent and graphic violence, as well as incessant profanity (over 90 "f--k"s, for starters). The film begins with a carjacking that becomes a kidnapping. It includes multiple shoot-outs and car chases, with blood shown. The chief villain first appears chopping off a man's arm with a machete (bloody arm and stump visible). The protagonists break into a home to hide out, rob several banks in one day, and share a brief sex scene (close-ups of limbs and faces). A woman smokes cigarettes, drugs are smoked and dealt, and one character drinks malt liquor from a bottle while driving.

Sexual Content

Coco shows leg and breasts to distract policeman and criminals; typically improbable sex scene (mid-missing-son crisis) shot as extreme close-ups of limbs and faces.


Carjacking at start features much shooting on L.A. street; thug beats Coco, O2 beats thug, Coco kicks downed thug; villain introduced as he hacks off a worker's arm with machete (brief, close shots of bloody arm and stump); O2's face and head bloody after fight/pistol-whipping; flashback shows Coco's son's blood on sidewalk after he's "hit by a stray bullet" several shootouts, one leading to a death; O2 shoots Big Meat point blank, after Big Meat has run out of bullets.


Characters curse just about nonstop: at least 94 f-words, some 70 s-words, and other profanity.

Social Behavior

In order to save his kidnapped son's life, O2 kills, steals, lies, breaks into a home, robs banks, and harasses criminals.
