1 "Good Lord", and a few "damns" and "darns"

A few times, men are seen sucking on pipes, only a few times does a character smoke a cigarette.

As mentioned above, Kong's battles with the dinosaurs are a little intense at times and blood is seen pouring out of the dinosaur's mouth. The scenes when the sailors are getting killed on skull island can be very disturbing due to the dramatic music and the unusual screams. There are also a few instances when Kong kills people by biting them or stomping them into the ground but no blood is shown.
