|violence||We see riots in the Cuban part of Miami where a lot of fighting occurs. A man is stabbed in the gut. We only see the aftermath. In the most infamous scene of the movie a man has his arm and leg cut off with a chainsaw. This isn't actually shown but we do see close up of his eyes and blood spraying on him briefly. It is still pretty disturbing. In the subsequent gunfight four people are shot and killed. A man is graphically shot in the head and chest. A man is hanged. A man smacks his sister to the ground and pulls the man who was kissing her away. A man shoots a drug lord dead. No blood. A man shoots a corrupt cop in the gut. Some blood. A man shoots another man in the chest, killing him. A man shoots another man in the head in a car. Very graphic. A man shoots his friend two times. Some blood, but not too graphic.
