Roy is surrounded by women in a sensuous environment. They sensually touch him and one of them kisses/licks his ears. A very sensual scene with some suggestive sounds. Though this turns out to be a dream.

A sexual encounter is implied and some characters visit several brothels, although no related activity occurs on the screen.

Roy and Chon Wang are half-naked in the bath. Then in the next scene, they are on the same bath. They are both pretty drunk, and Chon puts his hand on Roy's arm. Roy tells him to take it off.

In a deleted scene on the DVD, Roy finds an Indian woman skinny dipping in the river. She stands up and it's obvious he can see her breasts. We see the sides of her breasts.


Mostly martial arts violence. Sometimes they are intense, especially in the climax. Such highly choreographed and acrobatic fighting, along with other moments/behavior in the film, may prove to be enticing to some kids to imitate.

Some shootouts here and there. A man gets shots, a man gets his throat slashed (no blood, but graphic sound) and some fight scenes with graphic knockouts (people get kicked in the head, stomach, etc, so badly).

A few instances of that violence turn lethal, but the deaths aren't gory. In addition, while some viewers may find some of those scenes as unsettling or suspenseful, most of them, just like the overall film, are played in a comically adventurous fashion.


At least 7 "s" words, while other milder expletives and colorful phrases are also uttered.


Some drinking occurs and results in some drunkenness, while a major character seemingly gets high from whatever he smokes from a peace pipe given to him by some Indians who also smoke it (a few instances of regular smoking also occur).


The ending is intense. With characters in peril and near-death. Like, Roy and Van Cleef prepare for a duel/gun drawing contest (although most of it's played in a very humorous manner).

Rated PG-13 for action violence, some drug humor, language and sensuality
