HOOLIGAN ESCAPE is a British thriller in which a group of football hooligans on a trip to Russia are kidnapped and imprisoned in a warehouse.

Language

There is occasional use of very strong language ('c**t') and frequent use of strong language ('f**k'). Milder terms include 'bitch', 'prick', 'whore', 'wanker', 'bastard' and 'dickhead', in addition as use of the rude 'middle finger' gesture. There is also infrequent use of the discriminatory term 'retard'; however, the work as a whole does not endorse discriminatory language or behaviour.

There are multiple shootings, some resulting in spurts of blood or aftermath sight of blood and bullet wounds. People are stabbed, a man is set alight with a Molotov cocktail and one man tortures another using electrical wires, all without strong visual detail.

There are non-graphic visual and verbal references to human trafficking and sexual slavery.

Other issues include sight of a dead man with bloody needle marks on his arm, surrounded by discarded drug paraphernalia.

There are also infrequent crude verbal sex references.
