Pulpy mildy fun thriller

Blood is briefly shown staining a window when a heli pilot is shot. 3 heads are sgot at the end. 2 are considerably goopy. One man has his arm shot off. Fairly bloody but not over the top. A man is shot with a shotgun in the chest, blood spalters on the door behind him. A soldier is shot in the head with an smg, we see blood stain the wall behind him. A man is shot twice in the chest and finished off in the head (some blood). A little blood at the very end during a vendetta assassination/break in. A couple other bloodless shootings, protagonist tends to a bloody wound in him. 10 F words.
