There are scenes of moderate violence, which contain masked stabbings and slashings from blades, with minor bloody detail visible in the aftermath. There are also highly-stylised martial arts sequences, some taking place in a clear sporting context, with punches and kicks accompanied by exaggerated sound effects. There are stronger moments existing outside of the sporting context, which contain more focus on the use of pressure points, but these do not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury.
There is moderate bad language ('bitch'), as well as milder terms, including 'bastard', 'God', 'hell' and 'damn'.
A dead man hangs from a tree, implied to have been left there by his enemies, with a written message attached to his clothes. There is no focus on injury detail or accompanying verbal references to the man's death. There is very brief implication of a man sniffing something off the back of his hand, as well as a man lacing a drink with poison, but the latter does not have fatal consequences. There are mild sex references when a man jokes about a move called "Finding the Snake", hitting a man between the legs and also when a priest is pulled into a house by a group of women who claim they can give him lots of 'fun'.

Compulsory cut required to sight of cat fighting snake in accordance with the Cinematograph Films (Animals) Act 1937.
