KILLING THEM SOFTLY is a thriller starring Brad Pitt as a gangland enforcer who hunts down some men who are responsible for holding up a mob-run card game. It is rated 18 for strong bloody violence.

One scene shows a man on the receiving end of a sustained and brutal beating. His nose and mouth bleed heavily as he is repeatedly punched and he vomits up blood as he is hit in the belly. The man subsequently passes out after a kick to his face, after which further blows are delivered to his prone body. There is some dwelling on the infliction of pain and injury in this scene, with a focus on the sadistic pleasure of those who are perpetrating the violence. Elsewhere in the film, there are some bloody shootings, including sight of a man being shot in the head.

There is frequent strong language throughout, crude verbal sex references, and sight of heroin use.

No-one younger than 18 may see an 18 rated film in the cinema. No-one younger that 18 may rent or buy an 18 rated video or DVD.
