GOOD KILL is a US drama about a drone pilot who begins to question the morality of his missions.

Language

There is frequent use of strong language (''f**k'') throughout.

Violence

A drone camera captures the moment a woman is assaulted by a man. The man hits her with his fists and gun, before we see him thrusting into her against a wall and later on the ground. There is no nudity, and the attack is depicted without sound or detail as it is being viewed from high-altitude cameras. The drone pilots who witness the attack are repulsed by what they see and the acts are in no way eroticised or condoned.

There are frequent sequences in which targets are destroyed by the drones, with the explosions depicted on large digital screens in the US command centre. The aftermath of these explosions is not shown in clear detail.

Sex

There is a single sequence of strong sex in which a woman is seen straddling her husband in bed.
