360 is a drama about a series of people in different countries whose lives turn out to be connected. It was classified '15' for strong language and sex.

There are eight uses of strong language. This exceeds the level of infrequent strong language that may be permitted at '12A' but is allowable at '15' where the BBFC's Guidelines state 'There may be frequent use of strong language (for example, 'fuck')'. There are occasional scenes of sexual activity. In one scene, a recently released sex offender spurns a woman's advances and locks himself in a bathroom where he masturbates so as to lose any sexual interest in the woman. There is no strong detail, with the activity merely being implied. In another scene a man and a woman have sex, with the woman's breasts exposed as the man thrusts into her. The scenes are insufficiently brief or discreet to be classified at '12A' but are permissible at '15' where 'Sexual activity may be portrayed without strong detail'.

360 also contains some sexualised nudity during scenes in which young women expose their breasts for a male photographer. It also features brief moderate violence during a scene in which a male client punches a bare-breasted female prostitute in the face. In another scene, two dead men are shown with blood on one of the bodies. The film also contains some moderate sex references, a verbal drug reference and some mild bad language, including uses of 'bugger', 'screw you', 'God', 'hell', 'shit', 'asshole'.
