There are scenes of racism when white men refer to a black man as 'n****r' and 'coloured'. One man says that 'Indians', 'Puerto Ricans' and 'n****rs' are the 'same thing'. A Native American is referred to as a 'red n****r'. Another discriminatory term ('retard') is used during a rap song. The film features strong language ('motherf**ker', 'c**ksucker' and 'f**k') as well as uses of 'bitch', 'prick', 'shit', 'tits', 'asshole', 'God', 'hell', 'Christ' and 'damn'. This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy. Characters are shot, with sight of blood spurts and bullet wounds on impact.
