Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THE HITMAN'S APPRENTICE is a drama in which a young man is employed by his mother's boyfriend to be the driver for a contract killer.

Language

There is infrequent use of very strong language ('c**t'), as well as frequent strong language ('f**k').

Violence

There is occasional strong violence, including shootings which result in blood sprays. A scene shows a dead body being hacked up, but this occurs in the background and there is no gory injury detail There is also a scene of sexual violence when a video file is found on a computer which shows a woman lying restrained on a bed. A man enters the room, forcibly parts the woman's legs and strikes her in the face before he starts to thrust between her legs. The low quality of the footage means that nudity is not clearly visible and the actions of the assailant clearly shock the person who is viewing the file.
