Some native women wear two piece outfits. Some revealing cleavage.

Several native men are shot near the beginning of the film. Not graphic.

Several men grab a boy (who is trying to save two small women) and put him in a chair. One man hits him on the head. Later two men find him tied up and gagged under some folding chairs.

Mothra destroys part of a city (just like Godzilla or any other Classic sci-fi movie) Not graphic. Most of the time they look like toys.

Near the end, Nelson gets shot several times and is killed. Once again, not very graphic.

Some smoking and drinking.

A few scenes on the island in the first half of the film. One where a bunch of natives surround the exploration team. Nothing happens but eventually they go back and the "bad man" (Nelson) shoots the natives. Another scene involves a man being strangled by a carnivorous plant but he is only unconscious. Not very graphic but could be fighting to children younger than 10.

UK:A (original rating) / UK:PG (video) / USA:Passed (National Board of Review) / USA:Approved (certificate #20095)
