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.

No sex but a very strong undercurrent to the film. Women wear lycra sci-fi clothing that may been seen as highly suggestive and sometimes very skimpy. One character tries to seduce another but only gets as far as kissing.

Lots of people are shot with laser guns. Several people are impaled or stabbed and blood is seen but nothing too gory - although one character has eyes that pop out when he is impaled. Another character melts after beeing shot. One man has goggles whipped off to reveal machinery where his eyes should be. One fight scene involves two men with whips. Some scenes of characters vaporized by laser blasts.

Some misuse of "God." 1 use of "bitch".

Various alien drinks are consumed and there are hints that alien drugs used but nothing seen, although one character is rendered unconscious by a particularly strong drink.

A frightening and intense scene where characters blindly dip their hands in to a hollow wooden stump hoping they won't be stung by a poisonous creature.
