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.

There are two scenes of sex in the movie. The first one involves a man and a woman he just met having sex quite suddenly, the woman is seen thrusting on top of the man, breasts are clearly seen for a couple of seconds. This occurs no more than 6 minutes into the film.

The second sex scene involving the same man in which his buttocks is shown, the man thrusts ferociously until orgasm, the woman's legs around him. Afterwords they lie together and you can see her buttocks 2 times. There are other scenes in which topless women are featured. In one scene, several men are seen watching a porn movie, but only sounds and sexually suggestive phrases are really heard.

There is also a scene where a mutilated dead woman is seen and her breast and pubic hair are shown.

In one scene a male undresses in front of another. He removes his underwear and there is brief full frontal male nudity.


A man is poked through the chest with large hooks (we hear squishing and see the hooks going deep into his chest), the hooks are attached to cables and he is pulled off the floor (we see the hooks pulling at the skin and the man screams in agony); we see the man later with very bloody, torn flesh on his chest and he is unconscious on the floor.

A man is informed that a woman - with whom he is involved - went to a village to have an abortion where she was murdered. In the next scene, we see her naked dismembered body on a morgue table, her limbs placed incorrectly around her torso.

Men in a truck shoot guns at a car killing all the men inside (we see bloody bodies and bullet riddled car).

A man is shot in the head, he falls to the floor and blood pools under him.

A nearly unconscious man is dragged by soldiers, he is thrown to the floor; we see that he is badly bruised and bloodied from the beating. A man squeezes his head between his hands while threatening him.

Men are kicked and beaten and threatened by men with guns.

A man hits another man, and he falls to the floor.

A man euthanises an injured cow, shooting it twice in the head. We see the bullet holes and blood pooling around the dead animal's head.

We see archive-style photos of many dead bodies as well as footage of guns firing, implying the systematic execution of people.

A man is chased down a street, captured and put in the trunk of a car.

14 F-words, 5 scatological terms, 3 anatomical terms, 2 mild obscenities, name-calling (ugly), 7 religious exclamations.

A man smokes and drinks alcohol and people drink alcohol at dinner.

The scenes of torture and mutilation (as mentioned above in violence and gore) are very disturbing. There are also some intense scenes of gunfights in the film.

Rated R for some strong violence and gruesome images, sexual content and language
