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.

One scene shows a man's penis in a non-sexual way.

During the movies, men and children bear arms and shoot civilians. A man shaves his head and forces his hair into a woman's mouth causing her to vomit. At the end, the children OD and are stabbed; one man burns to death; and one main is gruesomely killed with a machete by the protagonist.

There is some smoking throughout the movie and much drug abuse (by children) toward the end.

Seeing the man's penus, seeing the children stabbed, seeing the burned to death body, and seeing the man being killed with a machete are frighting and intense.
