Some human characters are killed but there is no blood in any of the scenes.

Dr. Durant is disemboweled by Maximillian. No actual gore is shown, but the action is implied when Dr. Durant holds up an open book to stop Maximillian's rotary blade from advancing on him. The blade first shreds the first pages it contacts, then Dr. Durant is shown in obvious distress from behind the ripped pages.

Mild overall.

5 uses of "damn", 4 uses each of "hell" and "God", and 1 use of "Lordy".

Characters drink wine during a dinner scene.

There are some intense fight scenes and the droids aboard the Cygnus can be quite frightening to children. Maximillian himself is an especially imposing figure.

In the Hell sequence towards the end of the film, Reinhardt's dead body floats towards the screen, and then his face suddenly appears in front of the camera. Shortly afterward, Reinhardt and Maximillian merge into one being.
