The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
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.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

There is no sex in Syriana. -the opening scene pans up the front/profile of a woman's body as she is switching her attire. there is no nudity or undergarments; she is fully dressed. however, we see the close up of her clothed body, including her chest, as we have the cameras view. the scene does not necessarily appear to be sexual in nature, per se, and appears to be of a more symbolic nature - perhaps to portray some aspect of culture and gender in regards to the geographical and political situation.

Violence & Gore

There are a few violent scenes in the movie. There are some scenes when bombs go off, followed by images of bloody bodies. There is a scene when a man gets beaten very badly. -a man is interrogated and tortured. his finger nails are removed. this scene is graphic and bloody. -drowning involving a child

Profanity

The F-word is used twenty-one times (thirteen of which are in very rapid succession in an extremely short jump-cut segment). The S-word is used four times. There are a few other vulgar words are said as well, like S.O.B. and a**hole, but a few more religious profanities (like: For Christ's sake)

There is no drug use in the movie. You do see some people drinking various alcoholic drinks. Cigarettes also turn up, but seldom.

Almost all of the scenes listed under "violence" are quite intense. (Some are extremely intense.) There is also an abduction that will make viewers jump.
