Violence: Characters in this film are shot, blown up, beaten and frequently threatened with weapons. A man attacks and kills three intruders, one with an apparently lethal injection. He later kills a large group of men by booby-trapping his home. A woman is kidnapped and tied up. Government agents later capture and interrogate her. A man is hanged. A character is given an envelope of severed fingers. A bloody crime scene is shown. A number of characters suffer bloody injuries. Two men engage in a brutal fistfight and both receive serious injuries. Characters are tasered.

Sexual Content: A woman comments about her sexual orientation. Couples embrace and kiss infrequently. A woman wears a low cut top. Brief, mild sexual comments are made.

Language: The script includes a strong sexual expletive used in a nonsexual context and crude hand gesture, along with over two-dozen vulgarities, some scatological slang and terms of Deity.

Alcohol / Drug Use: Comments are made about a man who was repeatedly subjected to illegal drugs during a government experiment. Characters drink socially on several occasions.

Other: One character bemoans the fact that he hasn’t killed anyone for years. A poster of a pinup girl is seen in a government building. A cracking sound is heard when a character has a dislocated bone put back in place.
