Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - We see a woman breastfeeding a child (part of her breast is visible) and a nude corpse with a garment wrapped around its waist.


VIOLENCE/GORE 9 - An extended scene in which 83 civilians and a few soldiers are shot and killed. We see many close-ups of bloody arms and legs and dead bodies, including a number of disfigured and dismembered bodies (many are women and children) covered in blood. Throughout the film we see several flashbacks, slides and photographs of this massacre (some of them close-ups of the carnage). There's also an extended, graphic combat scene (and flashbacks of the scene) with lots of bombs, grenades and gunfire. A man is shot point-blank in the forehead (we see a close-up of the gun against his head, hear the shot and see the man fall down, but no blood). A man is shot in the chest (blood gushes out). A man is shot and spits up blood. Blood spews out of another's mouth after he is shot. We also see a soldier's face completely covered in blood when he's shot. We see many dead soldiers lying in creeks and on the ground, many of them have blood either on their clothes or on their skin; some are dismembered. We see protesters throwing rocks and torches and shooting guns at an occupied embassy. A car is torched. We see some dried, dark purple blood covering some corpses. We see a couple bloody heads wrapped in bandages. We repeatedly see a girl with an amputated leg. There's a hospital scene in which we see many injured, bloody civilians. A man contemplates suicide. We see a fistfight between two men. A man vomits.


PROFANITY 8 - About 25 F-words, some scatological references, lots of mild obscenities and several insults
