All actual characters are human. There are dead animals but they have their own category and aren't really characters contributing to the plot.

Most of the film has almost no music, so when violence occurs it is very sudden. A very loud car crash that seems to happen out of nowhere.

Most of the weapons used by the main characters in the film leave shotgun style blasts with lots of small hole. Best to look away at wound or wound cleaning close ups.

The whole movie is an existential look at human nature and the general outlook is pretty bleak. Ed Tom has a monolog about the nature of evil, using examples of people he arrested in his career.

Anton Chigurh reduces several characters' lives down to the luck of a coin toss. In a roundabout way he talks about fate to both the gas station owner and Carla Jean.
