There are several scenes of moderate violence which include punches, kicks to heads, and some use of bladed weapons. There are shoot-outs which result in occasional impact detail. One scene shows a woman stabbing a man in his leg with a pair of scissors.


Moderate threat includes a scene in which a man holds a boy as a human shield to protect himself from being shot. There are also scenes in which a family try to escape from a burning building.
