Neutral-to-positive ending, and hews closer to realism. A man dies at the end by suicide, but the main character gets everything he wants, including the ability to continue living his life by his own principles, even if those aren't strictly by the books

People are shown with injuries like bruised faces after being beaten up. A man who dies when a car rolls over is briefly shown to have blood on him. At the end of the film, a man kills himself by shooting himself in the head. There is blood spray shown behind him, and a puddle of blood under his head when he has died

The film opens with a radio broadcast about police officers being shot on the subway. A child finds a gun in the yard and is playing with it. A woman shoots a deer. A man shoots at people trying to rob him. A man is chased, beaten with a gun in hand, and threatened with a gun. A man shoots himself as others watch, committing suicide.
