Sex & Nudity

7/10

A coed shower scene shows both male and female buttocks and multiple female breasts. There are no undertones to this seen.

A brief scene showing both male and female buttocks.

A man and woman are making out, she is shown topless for a few seconds. Sex is implied.

Violence & Gore

8/10

Several scenes of bloody and sometimes gory violence, though some special effects aren't very realistic.

Many humans are impaled by bugs. some humans are beheaded by flying bugs with claws and some are sucked into the ground by burrowing bugs -- a man is shown with bloody stumps after being sucked into the ground.

A woman is impaled through the stomach and chest and people try to hold her down to take claws out while blood is spewing out.

A man's arm is broken in a grappling hold. The bone is briefly shown protruding. May not be for the faint of heart.

A woman is cut in half by a door (with some blood). A bug pokes a man's head and sucks his brains out.

A man has a hole in his head and another man sticks his fingers in the hole.

A man chokes a woman with his legs.

A man is flogged with blood shown on his back with each lash.

Hospital scene with lots of blood and people with amputated limbs.

Many bugs shot down with assault rifles, RPGs, and hand grenades.

Green blood and blown off claws shown.

A couple of realistic images of shattered corpses

Profanity

3/10

One F-word, a couple of anatomical references, a few mild obscenities

3/10

Casual alcohol use.

There is one scene on the bug planet: People have a party and drink beer

7/10

The bugs can be frightening to some. Also many of the killings and gory scenes are intense.

The brain bug, which is frightening, sucks the brain out of a human. This scene may disturb some.

A part of South America is devastated, many die. This scene is quite sad as Rico's parents are implied to have also died.

This movie is very intense and bloody, but the satirical tone lightens things up a bit.

There are many deaths, including main characters.

28/50
