MPAA Rated R for violence including graphic images, and for language

Sex & Nudity

  • Lou asks Nina if she wants to be in a relationship with him. However, the way he asks (being a very antisocial and psychopathic person), is extremely uncomfortable and cringey (not in a funny way).
  • None

Violence & Gore

  • There is a strong scene where is shown a woman with a slashed leg, lots of blood.Pretty gross.
  • Despite the rating description, this film does not really contain much violence, and what is shown is not necessarily too graphic nor gory. There are a few bloody images, however.
  • A man is seen being shot in the chest briefly.
  • We see a man with a bleeding foot.
  • The aftermath of a car crash is shown, with one of the victims' with a bleeding neck. He doesn't die though.
  • We see footage of a group shooting three policeman in a fast food restaurant. The scene is brief. You don't ACTUALLY see anything graphic though.


  • About 50 F-Words. 21 uses of 'shit.' 5 uses of 'bitch.' 7 uses of 'crap.' 2 uses of 'dick.' 1 use of 'Jesus Christ.'

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • There is some casual drinking in a restaurant setting.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The whole film deals with a television news network who is shown exploiting people's emotions and fears by showing graphic crimes.
  • Louis gets stressed and starts screaming in the bathroom.
  • There is an intense car chase towards the end of the film.
  • The crime scenes shown can be frightening to some.
  • A man watches people die violently and shows no emotion. These scenes are very unsettling to watch.
  • This film has a somewhat psychological feel, and the lead character seems quite antisocial and sociopathic.
  • Absolutely no tween should watch this, but mature teens can most likely handle it. As long as they understand the disturbing undertones the film carries, a (mature) 15 or 16 year old could watch this.
