A few mild kissing scenes.

A boy says "Heaven knows what the British will do to the women" implying rape.

There is a scene in which a man is "bundled" in a bed to keep him from having sex with the man's daughter. (Not said, but implied)

10/10 Lots of mooing


Basically none. Some "Damns" and "Hells"

A scene set in a bar has drinking and smoking in the background.

Children are often in mortal danger. Sometimes they are killed heartlessly.

Many brutally realistic battle scenes include lots of death and gore.

A man suddenly commits suicide after finding his wife and child killed by the British in front of his comrades.

A man thought to be dead rises suddenly.

In a very emotional sequence, a church full of innocent men, women, and children is burned to the ground.

The prolonged sequence of violence between Martin and Tavington is very emotional and gory, even though blood and the actually stabbing isn't shown.

Rated R for strong war violence
