• Drugs/Alcohol:  Social drinking, plus a corrupt cop (Billy Bob Thornton) uses heroin.

  • Language/Profanity:  A smattering of your usual profanity suspects including sh--, as-, dam-, he-- and fu--, plus instances where the Lord's name is taken in vain.

  • Sex/Nudity:  There's a scene in a strip club where the girls are dressed in super skimpy bikinis (instead of being naked) as they work the poles.

  • Violence:  For those squeamish about blood, Faster won't be your movie. There's lots and lots of bloodshed (some scenes are particularly graphic when people are shot at close range) mostly due to gunfire. And per the action movie norm, high-speed car chases and particularly tense situations are simply par for the course.
