Amid the corruption/violence, the overarching messages are that you shouldn't blindly follow orders without knowing why you're doing something and that everyone needs someone to "have their back" and believe in them even when no one else will.
Lots of violence, plenty of it featuring guns. Explosions, close-range executions, torture, and hand-to-hand fighting. A man likes to use a Russian Roulette-style approach on others in order to extract information. Stig shoots Bobby in the shoulder. A drug dealer's thugs have a man's head in a bag. A drug kingpin shoots a hostage. There are a few long fist fights, and the body count includes most of the secondary cast.
Paula Patton does a nude scene with Denzel Washington. He's shirtless in bed; she's topless and wearing tiny panties. There aren't any scenes of them embracing/having sex, but they're shown either right before or right after a couple of times, in bed, talking and kissing while her breasts are showing.
Frequent strong language includes "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," "c--k," "bitch," "ass," "damn," "hell," "crap," "oh my God," "goddamn," and more.
Car brands/logos seen include Chrysler 500, Dodge Challenger, Ford.
