10/10

Profanity

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

3/10

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

The brain bug, which is frightening, sucks the brain out of a human. This scene is very disturbing and grotesque.

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

This movie is very intense and bloody.

7/10

33/50: probably best for 15+
