The film's characters send the message that trauma can be overcome through hard work and sincere effort, along with the support of friends.
Grisly violence, with dead bodies aplenty; a man's spine is crushed by falling rock. A sharp blade punctures a man's hand; scary medical crises, including seizures. A woman is bound in front of a steam pipe, so that when it vents, we hear (but do not see) her being burned alive. We later see her body. Rats gnaw a corpse. A cop is shot point-blank. A woman is stabbed with a butcher knife. A man's hand is crushed by a collapsing bed; a man bites out another man's jugular. A man is shot at short range.
Some kissing; a couple is shown as lovers. Some light flirting and sexual tension.
Frequent strong language, including "f--k," "s--t," "bitch," "hell," "damn," "God" and "Jesus Christ."
Some brands visible or mentioned as part and parcel of the film, like Amtrak, Woolworth's, Timex, and more.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
A paralyzed man requests vodka instead of juice. Many street drugs are shown and mentioned as part of a police demonstration educating officers.
