With two immortal characters battling it out from beginning to end, violence without any consequence is a continuous concern. Gunfights, stabbings (with characters seen with bloody knives and swords sticking out of their bodies), and a decapitation are just some of the examples. A huge battle has two men shot repeatedly, with one literally being blown to bits. Sexual banter is heard. The main character is known for his womanizing ways and reputation of having had sexual relations with various females. A woman is seen completely naked from the rear. Frequent moderate and mild profanities are heard, along with terms of deity. Cigarette smoking is glamorized.
