THE HURRICANE HEIST is a US action thriller in which a criminal gang attempts to carry out a robbery during a Category 5 hurricane.

Violence

Multiple people are shot, sometimes resulting in small amounts of blood spray. There are also occasional scenes of hand-to-hand combat. A villain makes a comment about applying a cattle prod to a woman's 'privates' but the threat is not realised.

Threat

People are killed by explosions or struck by debris during a violent storm. Others are pulled into the sky by the wind or swept away by a tidal wave. Further moderate threat arises in sustained shoot-out scenes and sequences in which hostages are threatened by armed criminals.

Language

There is infrequent use of the term 'bitch'. One partial use of strong language ('f**k') is cut off sharply after the first letter. Milder terms include 'shit', 'ass', 'asshole', 'dick', 'piss', 'balls' and 'damn'.

Injury detail

There is brief sight of a hub-cap embedded in a man's chest, without blood or wound detail, and of a man's bloody, broken arm. Bruises and bloody cuts are seen on people's faces.

Infrequent mild sex references include a sequence in which a man finds discarded female underwear in another man's flat.
