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.

Sex & Nudity

Brief nudity during Adam and Eve sequence. Private parts always covered, although there were a few rear ends visible, in shadow or from a distance.

Sodom's bizarre sequences, including demands from Sodom's residents that Lot bring out the three angels so that they can "know them". Lot also offers his daughters to the residents as well. but they decline. Also, some men put a drunk woman with a goat, and she does some kind of dance in front of it. Men wear heavy makeup as well.

Sarai instructs her maid to conceive a child through her husband. She does offscreen and gets pregnant.

Some mild situations that can imply sex (Adam and Eve roll next to each other while God says "be fruitful and multiply", and Abram and Sarai also play around a bit, but nothing graphic whatsoever).

Abraham circumcises his son, we see the baby's private parts very briefly, and Abraham wears nothing but a towel on his lap.

Violence & Gore

Cain's murder of Abel (the first murder ever), we see the dead Abel and Cain has blood on his hands. God marks him with a black scar in his forehead, and Adam and Eve bury Abel in grief.

The children of Cain stab at something, possibly a human, as a sacrifice for idols. We see the motion, but nothing in detail.

Noah is mocked by tribal-looking people with animal skull regalia. The Great Flood wipes out all the living things in the earth, save Noah, his family, and the animals on the ark. Nothing violent, other than the thundering.

The crashing of the scaffolds on the Tower of Babel, not too graphic. Nimrod shoots an arrow towards the sky.

Abraham fights with the armies that captured Lot, his brother's son.

A mushroom cloud-like destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, and we see Lot's wife turn into a pillar of salt. Everyone in Sodom and Gomorrah dies, but the movie implies that.

Abraham is about to sacrifice his son, Isaac, towards the end. We see a snake crawl out of a child's skull.

Abraham has a vision that requires him to "divide" animals, and we see the carcasses with blood on a stone altar.




This film is about/contains religious material without context nor rebuttal which would be considered shocking and offensive to non-religionists. Cain killing Abel, the Great Flood of Noah's time, the Tower of Babel's meancing uproar and confusion, Lot threatened by Sodom's residents, Abraham about to sacrifice his son Isaac towards the end.
