A man and his wife are seen in bed together, they then start to kiss (implying sex) and their daughter makes vague references about why she wasn't allowed in their room.

Several men are thrown around when too much oil goes through the rig and breaks part of it.

A group of men are killed when an entire room completely fills with oil.

Several men in a shack are killed by falling, burning debris which causes an explosion.

A man is thrown against the wall by an explosion and gets a shard of glass in his foot. He then takes the bloody shard out of his foot and cries in pain. He is also partially blinded by the explosion, with blood running down his eye. This scene is very graphic, bloody, and somewhat painful to watch.

A man gets his leg broken and pinned under a metal floor. We see the bone sticking out and apparently pinned against a metal beam. Another man then puts the bone back in to get him out and he screams in pain. Very bloody and graphic.

A man is killed after being hit by debris. We see him get hit, then his lifeless body fall into the water.

A man burns his hands after touching a metal door that has been heated up by fire.

A man forces a woman to jump off the rig (in order to save her life) before jumping off himself. He is then hit by debris, but doesn't seem too badly harmed.

Several men and women are covered in blood at the end of the movie.

Multiple uses of the S-word

A man yells "SON OF A BITCH!" while in great pain.

This movie is VERY intense and perilous throughout the latter half.

The rig exploding is VERY loud and VERY surprising. And the affect it has on the rig is quite shocking.

A man pulls a glass shard out of his foot, this is very graphic and might disturb plenty of viewers. He also puts a boot on his bare foot which makes it look more painful.

A man has a bone portruding out of his broken leg which apparently also pins him. This looks very painful and graphic. Another man then puts the bone back in his leg to get him out and he shrieks in pain.

The fire throughout much of the movie is very realistic-looking and surprising.

A man and woman make a desperate jump to safety while debris and fire is all around them. The man ends up having to force the woman to jump in order to save her.

The movie is very emotionally intense throughout, for obvious reasons.

The ending is quite emotional.

Rated PG-13 for prolonged intense disaster sequences and related disturbing images
