SAVAGE is a New Zealand crime drama in which a gang enforcer seeking to maintain his position must reconcile with his traumatic past.

Language

There is frequent use of very strong language ('c**t') some of which is used in an aggressive and violent context. There is also use of strong language ('f**k). Discriminatory language includes uses of the term 'faggot'.

Violence

Rival gangs use improvised weapons, including knives, to attack each other. A man's hand is hit with a hammer and, in another scene, a man is killed with a hammer. There is bloody detail throughout.

There are scenes of drug misuse and strong sex references. It is implied that a woman is in a physically abusive relationship when she is seen with bruises on her skin; there are also implied scenes of child physical abuse within a borstal setting.
