Loyalty has its rewards, especially when it comes to friends who've become like family. And hard work and perseverance will be rewarded if they come from the right place and with the best intentions. Self-control is an additional theme.
Positive Role Models & Representations
Pummeling action in the ring (body blows, face punches, sounds of cracking bones) can get quite bloody and is painful to watch. One character is shown as a young child dealing with stressful situations with his fists. Lots of trash talk between boxers. A character deals with cancer treatment (sad moments).
One scene shows a couple presumably having sex; viewers see some skin, the back strap of a bra, and kissing.
Language includes one "f--k," plus "ass," "s--t," "son of a bitch," the "N" word, "damn," "hell," "oh my God," and "Jesus" (as an exclamation).
Labels/brands seen include Nike, Dell, Samsung.
Ease of Play
One character leaves a bottle of liquor to salute a hard-drinking friend who passed away long ago.
