Sex & Nudity

Suggested Rating: Rated PG for swashbuckling violence, some sensuality, and brief language.

Nothing but kissing.

Violence & Gore

4/10 This an 80s movie so the PG rating was different in back then than it is now because there was no PG-13.

A man hits another man with a sword and knocks him out.

A man wrestles with a giant and strangles him till he passes out.

The giant knocks a couple of men out.

The princess and the prince get attacked by a rodent of unusual size.

A scene of blood:

A bad guy throws a knife at a man, He is shown bloody but survives.

The bad guy cuts the man with his sword.

A machine partially kills a man.

There is a fire blowing up at the castle and the Giant scares all the people. He beats the bad people and another man chasing one of the bad guys to kill him.



1 use of son of a bitch

One very noticeable use of blasphemy by child.


A man challenges a bad guy with a battle of wits which is poison in wine. It is done by what looks like a cigarette.

Despite the 4/10 on the violence it is the 80s PG. What now is PG-13 did not exist back then. The blood scene is intense for young kids and could be disturbing.

The "boo" scene may be frightening to young children,
