Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in The Cold Light of Day...

Violence: With the exception of the opening few minutes, scenes of violence permeate the runtime of this movie. Many characters are shot, often for no particular reason. Others are beaten, thrown and tortured. Much of this carnage, including a scene where a person attempts to control the bleeding of a gunshot wound with a hot utensil, includes blood effects. Car chases down narrow city streets result in damage to property and other vehicles while bystanders are forced to run for cover. Crashes result in more bloody injuries. Police are dishonest. A man beats a policeman with a car door. Characters fall from heights, and one is shown as he slams to the ground.

Sexual Content: A woman is seen in a bikini. A woman’s underwear is briefly seen when she falls from a motorcycle.

Language: Scatological slang and other profanities are heard, along with one sexual expletive.

Drugs/Alcohol: Characters drink wine over dinner. One character consumes alcohol as he speaks of a stressful event.
