Not physically, but a man shouts at two women, threatening and intimidating them and waving a gun at them in one of the women's home - I believe the man lives with her, but I'm not 100 % sure. In any case, if someone is triggered by domestic violence, this scene will probably have that effect.

A character accidentally shoots a cat. The scene is quick but graphic and bloody. There's hitchcock-style shots of the cat for a few minutes before that give you the sense that something is going to happen to the cat

Someone has been shot through the back of the head with two bullets, each bullet exiting through an eye. Although the eyes have been covered with coins, it's clear that the eyes are gone, or at least badly injured.

Several times during the film, most of them by Agent Smecker, a gay character, though one cop during the investigation of the Copley Plaza massacre accidentally calls the guy with the pennies the "fag man", to which Smecker remarks "Well...Freud was right." In addition, a minor villain near the start of the film calls the brothers "faggots" as he and his partner attack them.
