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.

3/10

During the movie's climax, a woman offers the protagonist anal sex if he saves the world. Later, there's a close-up rear shot of the woman, nude from the waist down. Her nude buttocks are briefly seen.

A couple of references here and there.

9/10

Most of the gunshots are followed by a brief blood spurt.

Much other violence and extended fight scenes, some stylized, although not dwelled upon. For example, during an early scene, Lancelot's body is sliced in half by a sharp blade (no blood and cartoonish).

Harry defeats Dean and his goons in a bar in one scene. In the scene, a tooth is knocked out of a man's mouth during a brawl and the camera follows it through the air in slow-motion (played for laughs).

Eggsy and the other recruits have to pass several intense tests to become the next Lancelot. The sequence of the tests is as follows:

- While the recruits are sleeping, their room is flooded with water but Eggsy manages to punch a hole in the glass wall for the water to flow out.

- The recruits have to train their poodles. (no violent content aside from Eggsy threatening to shoot his dog; he doesn't)

- The recruits have to jump from a helicopter and land safely, which is hard for Roxy due to her fear of heights. Merlin announces that one of the recruits has no parachute, but in the end, this does not turn out to be true.

- The recruits are drugged with Rohypnol and each of them wake up to find themselves on a train track and are each asked several questions to test whether they would die for the Kingsmen before almost getting run over by a train.

There is one extremely graphic scene where Harry, induced by a computer chip in his head, goes on a murderous rampage in a church. The violence includes gunshots, impalement, and beatings, with lots of blood and gore. The scene is intended to be morbidly humorous but is still very violent.

With Pomp and Circumstance playing in the background, dozens of world leaders and wealthy people have their heads detonated. The explosions are brightly colored and the scene is intended to be humorous, but is still technically violent because heads are exploding.

Eggsy kills Gazelle by poisoning her with his shoes.

In a scene during the credits, Eggsy repeats what Harry did to Dean's goons by throwing a cup with alcohol in the bar at one of the goon's head. However, after asking the goons to stand in the bar or fight, the credits continue.

8/10

84 uses of fuck, both in casual and in intense scenarios, 36 shits, 2 uses of the "n" word (both used by a pastor in a hate-filled church) 4 ass's, 2 pricks, 2 bitches, 3 wankers, 2 dickheads and 3 goddamns.

The "V sign" is used once as an obscene gesture, and one middle finger is used too.

2.5/10

Alcoholic spirits are drank to celebrate and invoke bravery.

A recurring character is an abusive drunk who spends much of his time at the local pub.

Rohypnol (aka the "date rape drug") is described as the "only sure way to get a date to go home with you."

There's a prolonged scene where a graphic violent riot takes place at a church, and the congregation starts brutally slaughtering each other after being exposed to an electronic signal. The lone survivor of the church massacre then walks out and is shot in the head by an antagonist. This is the most violent scene in the film and could disturb younger viewers.

Other violent scenes as described in the Violence & Gore section may frighten viewers as well.
