Sex & Nudity

  • A female alien (that looks a lot like a human woman) near the beginning of the film is wearing a suit that reveals cleavage.
  • There are references to "pon farr," an every-seven year time of agony that male Vulcans must endure. Some see very subtle implications in the same scene that two characters are about to engage in sex, but the scene shifts away.

Violence & Gore

  • Two people are shot; one is simply flung back by the impact and the other is completely disintegrated by an energy weapon. People die aboard two ships that explode. Some intense hand to hand combat. In one instance, a man is stabbed forcefully in the torso; only a small blood spot is shown some while later. Another man is kicked in the face into a lake of lava (very briefly he is seen to flare up from far away).


  • Use of the word "God" 4 times. 9 instances each of "damn" and "hell."
  • Also 3 occurrences of "bastard"; 1 "son of a bitch."

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • One scene takes place at a bar and it is hinted that two characters are drunk (one character is not drunk, but crazy) the other is actually drunk. Several people drinking in the background.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Recommended Rating: PG for violence including some gross images, sci-fi action/peril, a frightening moment, a suggestive image, mild thematic elements, and language
