The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity


A woman rises from a bathtub (covered in a towel) and lifts Bond's shirt. The scene cuts to the two of them having sex. We see the top of Bond's chest and the woman's breasts.

A man wearing a bath robe (he is nude underneath) rubs the bare back of a naked woman whose breasts are covered with a sheet. We get a quick glimpse at the side of her breasts

Bond brings a woman into a steam room and removes her clothes, it is implied they have sex. We see a foggy glimpse of the woman's bear back and buttocks.

Bond and a woman go behind a rock under the sea and we see bubbles rise from where they are, implying sex

A man and a woman (fully clothed) kiss passionately in bed. The woman's dress is revealing of her breasts and the man begins to remove a strap of her dress but they are interrupted by a knock at the door.

Rape is very briefly implied (it would go over a kid's head completely)

Women wear revealing clothing and bikinis throughout

"Love making" and mistresses is the topic of several conversations throughout the film

The opening sequence is of naked women swimming underwater

Bond and other men are seen in bathing suits (or shirtless) throughout the film

Violence & Gore


Bond garrottes a villain with a poker.

Bond is shot in the foot, and his enemies follow him by the bloodstains on the ground. Bond is about to be shot, but he moves a girl in the way. She is shot, but we do not see the wound.

A man's face is burned in a fireplace.

When Bond stabs an enemy with a knife and people are shot with harpoons underwater, copious amounts of blood mingle into the water, although other times it is not shown. A man is stabbed in the eye with a harpoon through his goggles, but we don't see it very clearly. Largo is shot in the back with a harpoon gun. Blood comes from the wound.

It's implied a man is eaten by a shark.

There are deaths, hand-to-hand combat sequences, and explosions.



1 use of "hell" and 2 uses of "damn."


James Bond never lit a cigarette in this fourth installment of the film franchise, but plenty of others did light up, including five of the film's major stars. Fiona and Domino smoke cigarettes, and Largo smokes cigars. A few supporting characters hold cigarettes just once. Other persons smoke around a table in a casino.

Less than a handful of scenes with alcholic beverages.


A man burns his girlfriend with a cigarette, although you don't see it.

Some deaths. The underwater battle could be considered intense.

This would be the most intense James Bond film to date at its time.

TOTAL: 17/50
