language

There is frequent use of strong language (‘f**k’). Milder terms include ‘prick’ and ‘shit’.

violence

During a torture interrogation scene, a man threatens to strike a restrained man’s foot with a hammer and then uses a blowtorch to burn the foot; the act of burning occurs out of frame, but there is brief, dimly lit aftermath sight of the victim’s wounds. In another scene we briefly see a dead body lying in a dark pool of blood. A man punches another’s face and then continues to deliver punches below frame.

threat and horror

The film concerns the suspected kidnapping of a missing child, and multiple scenes show the boy’s parents in a state of emotional distress. It is later revealed that the kidnapping is the work of a ring of child abductors, and it is briefly and discreetly implied that the kidnappers’ motives may be related to child sexual abuse. There is further strong threat during a scene of torture.


There are infrequent moderate references to misuse of prescribed Valium. There are infrequent, non-graphic references to miscarriage.
