Extreme "bad cop" depravity is definitely family-unfriendly.

From a College Students Viewpoint

I watched this with my girlfriend, we are both twenty, I was considering watching it with my nephew (16) but after pre-watching it, it is far too violent and doesn't make use of a bad situation (New Orleans) to show retribution or regret on the part of the main character, it just allows him to continue breaking the law. For adults alone: great movie, but make sure the kids aren't watching.
