SLEEPLESS is a US thriller about a cop whose teenage son is kidnapped by a gang boss.

Language

There is strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker'), as well as milder terms including 'son of a bitch', 'asshole' and 'bullshit'.

Violence

Strong violence includes a large splatter of blood against a car window when a man is shot in the head at close range, a man's head being smashed against a tiled floor, and a man being stabbed in the side of the neck with a broken bottle. There are several further shootings and stabbings.

There are references to drug dealing and several scenes in which packages of cocaine are traded, and in one case tested by a man who tastes a small amount of the drug.

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
