Considering Harry's choice of weapon, a .44 Magnum, there is much less gore than would actually be seen in equivalent real life situations.

Not sure why people marked "No" for this. There is a major plot point in which a character pays a thug to beat him up (rather violently) in order to frame Harry.

The serial killer present in the movie is implied to be incredibly mentally ill, and is of course very violent.

The Scorpio killer specifically says he will target a member of a minority group in a letter and uses a slur.
