After tumbling down a mudslide, a character lands face first on a woman's lap.

Two characters are shown in bed together and can be seen from the side to be naked, however, breasts and genitals are strategically obscured.

Frequent action/adventure violence. A man gets stabbed; however, the resulting wound is not shown on-screen. Some occasional hand-to-hand combat and gun violence (with no emphasis on pain or injury). Some off-screen deaths also occur throughout the film.

A characters hand is bitten off by an alligator and the bloody stump can be seen at this moment as he lets out repeated blood curdling screams of pain ! He frantically holds his arm in pain and tries to bandage it. This particular moment of violence is quite vivid, however, there is an emphasis placed upon the pain that the character is experiencing.

Moments later this character falls backward onto an oil lamp. It crushes and bursts into flame lighting his back on fire as he continues to scream out in pain !! He then staggers toward the heroine brandishing a knife. He then falls into the alligator pit to his death. Blood curdling screams and crunching sounds can be heard although not seen.

Frequent profanity throughout, including sh*t, SoB, damn, hell, G.D., & J.C.

Contains some casual smoking and drinking throughout the film.

Two characters light a fire using bricks made out of marijuana, and one character implies having smoked marijuana in college.

The above-mentioned scenes of intense violence may frighten younger and more sensitive viewers.
