ONLY GOD FORGIVES is a thriller starring Ryan Gosling as an American drug dealer living in Bangkok.

Violence

Strong and bloody violence includes sight of a murdered and heavily bloodied child prostitute, and aftermath sight of a man whose head has been beaten in with a baseball bat. In one scene a man is tortured, his hands and legs being pinned to a chair with knives. His eye is then bloodily gouged, before he is killed by having a spike pushed into his ear. There is also a scene in which a man has his hand chopped off, and a scene in which a man is killed by having his belly and chest slashed open. We do not see this latter blow in detail, but the aftermath shows the bloody injury as his rib cage has been cut apart.

The film contains two uses of very strong language ('c**t'), frequent use of strong language ('f**k'), and use of a racist term ('n****r').

There are scenes set in brothels and sex scenes, including one in which it is implied that a young woman is masturbating.
