Sex & Nudity

Limited sex during the first UK series from 2010. Only sex references. Some references and jokes about vaginas are made. Off scene a soldier places a knife in a condom and inserts it into his anus in order to smuggle it past security. This is hard to notice and is not graphic at all.

During the second Cinemax series (from season 2 onwards) there are multiple graphic sex scenes, breasts, thrusting and strong graphic references made throughout almost every episode. Including graphic sex scenes with some full frontal nudity.


Violence & Gore

Lots of graphic shootouts with blood and blood mists seen, stabbings and hand to hand fights.

Gruesome detailed headshots accompanied with up close shots in almost every episode.

Limbs are severed and pits of dead decaying bodies are shown.

Bombs are stitched inside peoples stomachs and one scene shows a soldier cutting one out with a knife.

Disturbing deaths and realistic like war scenes.



Constant uses of "fuck" and "shit" in almost every sentence.

For example, in the Project Dawn series alone there is over 300 uses of the word "fuck" and 70 uses of "shit" within just 10 episodes.

Swearing is constantly used as the characters are placed under massive stress througout episodes


One soldier sometimes smokes.

Heroin processing plants are shown in one episode.

A soldier tells a story how he was framed and dishonourably discharged from the army for having opium in his locker.


Lots of constant on the edge of your seat scenes

Tension shootouts and saddening deaths in every episode

The story behind the show may upset or distress some viewers


Overall the show should not be viewed by under 16s. This show is more graphic than most shows shown on TV.
