METRO MANILA is a Tagalog language drama about a man who moves to Manila with his poverty-stricken family and starts working for a security company, only to be faced with danger and a life-changing situation.

Language

The film contains the use of strong language ('f**k' and 'motherf**ker'), as well as mild and moderate bad language ('asshole', 'prick', 'bullshit').

Violence

There are scenes of strong violence, most notably in a repeated flashback sequence of a violent robbery. We see shooting and bloody injury to several characters in this scene, including a gunshot to the head which results in a fleeting blood spurt, as well as the sight of bloody mouths of injured characters. In another scene, a character is shot in the chest, with depiction of the impact and blood on the floor as the victim crawls around a corner.

Threat

There are scenes of sustained gun threat.

There is brief breast nudity as female bar dancers change their clothes and a scene in which lines of cocaine are seen on a table.
