This film is about war so there is a very high body count. Most of the killings are very bloody. You also see people executed in various graphic ways including being shot in the back of head. In battle you dont just see men being shot, you see them being crushed by tanks. This is all very bloody.

Some charactors are seen smoking and drinking alcohol.

The massacre of a village and the executions are pretty intense.
