Here's a brief summary of the content found in this cop drama that's been rated R. Profanity consists of at least 291 "f" words, while plenty of other expletives and colorful phrases are also uttered. Sexually related dialogue is present, as is brief nudity (breasts, butt).
Violence includes viewed and unseen murders, some brutal fighting and striking of others, brief torture, and a suicide via gunshot. Much of that has bloody results, and those scenes and moments of potential peril and threat (including a hot iron being held close to an infant's head to make someone else talk) could be unsettling and/or suspenseful to some viewers.
Various characters (including bad cops and criminals) have bad attitudes, while some of the action and stunts might be enticing for some kids to imitate. There's drug-related content and some briefly seen use (heroin and possible pot), while characters drink, one to the point of intoxication, while some characters also smoke. Tense family material (regarding a wife/mother dying from cancer, and occupation related conflict) is also present.
