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.

A man wakes out of sleep. You see his bare torso and he appears to be wearing some sort of small loin cloth covering his privates. The camera angle does not show any bulge, but a glimpse of the side of his upper leg/butt area is shown as he gets out of bed. No nudity.

So in short, no nudity.


A man is beheaded (on-screen at a distance), but he is shown on his knees and the sword being raised beforehand.

A pig is slaughtered, and one of the characters is seen gutting it.

Soldiers are stabbed. Lots of battle related violence, stabbing, slashing, mostly with swords, spears and axes.

People are lit on fire and scream, and flaming bodies are seen falling into the fire.

A younger child has a spear thrown into his back. We see the child lying on the ground with the spear sticking out and blood.

The unrated version has some additional graphic blood spray, particularly in the opening battle sequence.


1 use of "ass". 1 brief use of sh*thole in the beginning. Profanity is scarce, and when used, is of a lighter nature, such as "d*mn", "hell", etc.

The battle scenes are intense, but not much blood is shown.

The beheading can be disturbing.

The appearance of the Seal People could be frightening to a younger audience.
