Sex & Nudity

4/10

Bond, still mourning Vesper, confines his usually boundless sexual energy to one proposition: He brings a British agent named Strawberry Fields into his hotel suite and asks her, "I can't find the stationary. Will you help me look?" In Bond-speak that means, "Why don't you come into the bedroom, take off all your clothes and have sex with me." They do indeed wind up in bed, where we see them chatting afterwards, sheets covering strategic spots.

A nude dead woman is (fully) seen stretched out facedown on a bed. She's covered in black oil. Quick flashes show audiences another woman screaming as a man begins to sexually assault her. She escapes, but her female rescuer is also handled roughly by their attacker. She bites his face as he presses close and, eventually, shoots him dead. She tells Bond that this assailant "did things" with her mother and older sister before strangling them.

We learn that Camille, the film's designated "Bond girl," slept with Greene to get close to her own target of revenge. Their affair is mentioned often, at times augmented by descriptions of how each "performed." Greene later "gives" Camille to a would-be South American dictator, asking him to "dump her over the side [of the boat] when you're done." She wears revealing clothing.

A female character in a swimsuit tells her presumed lover that she wants his hands on her body. Bond makes a sexualized quip about handcuffs. Camille kisses Bond.

Violence & Gore

7/10

A car chase in the opening sequence is fairly intense (not bloody, but there are several brutal crash scenes).

We quickly see a photograph of a dead man. It appears from the photograph that his face has been eaten by animals, and thus is graphic with exposed rotting muscle and bone, as well as rotting skin hanging off of his head.

Bond and another man get in a fight in a hotel. The two fight each other with several objects, until Bond throws the man through a plate glass window. The man lands on a patio, where Bond stabs him in the leg with car keys until he dies of blood loss (called "bleeding out"). We see large bloody cuts and wounds all over his body. This is an unusually graphically violent fight scene for the Bond film series.

Many scenes of people getting shot with guns. Some of these scenes are graphic, and one features a man dying a slow and painful death after being shot twice, but the scene isn't played for action, but for sadness.

A man on a motorcycle yells at Bond . Bond hits the handlebar and causes the motorcycle to accelerate and flip over on top of the man, and then kicks him in the face, knocking him unconscious.

There is an action-packed boat chase in the movie. While not very graphic, we see several people being hit with boats, as well as one person get caught in an explosion triggered from puncturing another boat's gas tank.

An airplane is attacked by a group of enemy fighters. After repeated attacks from the fighters we finally see the plane give out and slam violently into the ground in a giant fireball.

The antagonist, Greene tries to kill Bond with an axe and misses. We see the axe hit his foot and blood squirt out for a split second, and then see him pull the axe out as more blood sprays out.

It's implied that a man dies at the end by the mention of 2 bullets found in his head and a can of motor oil in his stomach.

There is a big explosion towards the end where someone is killed. For a brief second, you see the explosion rip his clothes off of his body, as well as chunks of his skin. It's not incredibly graphic, and not shown for more than a split second.

During the big explosion we see a villain dead with lots of glass stabbed in his back.

Lots of shootouts, intense fistfights, and explosions.

Profanity

3/10

Several "Shits" are heard. God's and Jesus' names are misused at least once each. "Ass," "Bastard," "Hell" and the British interjection "Bloody" round out the tally.

3/10

Bond drinks constantly throughout the film. At one point, it is implied that he is drunk after drinking six of his signature martinis.

A party scene where nearly everyone is drinking wine (no one gets drunk).

We see many characters drinking beers, wines, and other alcoholic beverages frequently throughout the film.

Though not shown directly on-screen, we see several people smoking tobacco products throughout the film.

Lots of characters smoke cigars and cigarettes

5/10

The battle scenes are quite intense, with an intense car chase opening the film with gunfire, an intense aeroplane chase.

Several jump scenes, though these are not too frightening.

We see a man get shot in the back multiple times and fall onto the ground in a pool of blood. As he slowly and painfully dies, we see Bond try to comfort him. After he dies, Bond throws his body in a dumpster and takes his wallet, claiming "he wouldn't care". This may be intense to emotional viewers.

Bond kills one man in a particularly intense/brutal manner, unusually so for a Bond film: He stabs the man in a major artery in his leg and allows him to "bleed out" to death, though no blood is shown on screen.

The entire movie is very violent and very intense. This is mostly because of it's short run-time for a Bond film, so all of the violence and intense scenes are quite close together.
