There is one scene of brief male nudity. Only a part of his butt is shown.


A man is violently beaten during an interrogation, with some blood shown. A woman is beaten and we can see blood on her lip.

Some scenes of soldiers bleeding mild to moderately with bullet wounds in the chest area.

A man is shot four times in the face through a pillow; nothing is heard and only a steaming hole in the pillow is seen. One character is bashed in the skull a few times (blood is briefly shown) and his dead body is run over by a locomotive offscreen.

Numerous men are killed quickly by gunshots, some in one-on-one gun duels, others by military skirmishes and firing squads. Primarily bloodless, but corpses are often shown.


Son of a b*tch said 2-3 times, a**hole said once or twice, bast*rd said 5-6 times, a memorable use of bullsh*t, and some religious exclamations including 1 G** d***.

Eastwood smokes nearly all the time in the movie.
