In one scene a woman is seen nursing a baby. Upper part of her breasts can be very briefly seen.

Two teenagers kiss twice.

A boy asks a girl to "take her clothes off". The girl looks somewhat puzzled at the idea, but soon it turns out he needed to use their clothes as a decoy to mislead the villains who had been chasing them. He is then shown in his boxers, and her in a shirt that comes down to her knees.

A boy makes a piece of clothing out of animal skin for a girl. He asks her to try it on. She starts to take off her shirt, and when he doesn't look away she gives him a funny look. He turns around. The bushman doesn't catch on, and he is still staring at her. The boy then turns the bushman's head around.

A very disturbing and somewhat graphic poaching scene in the beginning shows:

- Elephants and other animals being shot and falling in the mud.

- Poachers sawing off the tusks of elephants with a chainsaw.

- A park ranger shoots two poachers. One of the poachers falls dead in a brief mist of blood.

Poachers raid a home and kill all the occupants. The killings are not shown, but two of the bodies are briefly shown afterwards. Little blood can be seen. Later, a teenage girl sets up a dynamite and blows up some of the poachers, though the deaths are not shown yet heavily implied. There are some shootings throughout the film, and the poachers attempt to kill a young boy and a girl for a few times.

A man is briefly seen from behind sitting on a chair outside, motionless. In the next scene, the girl who saw him clearly says that he was killed.

A man sitting in the back of a helicopter is shot at point blank. His body falls out of the helicopter 30' (apprx.) to the ground below. Impact is hidden by bushes.

A man runs into a cave trying to stop a burning fuse. He is too late, and the cave blows up with him in it. Death is only implied.

1 "bullshit", 1 "goddamn", 2 "damned", 1 "bastard", 2 "hell", 4 "crap", and 2 "bloody".

Two or three men are seen smoking cigarettes.

A boy is stung by a scorpion. He is not shown being stung, he is only shown afterword clutching his leg and wrything in agony.

See Violence & Gore.

Rated PG for violence and mild language
