An explicit portrayal of sex between persons of the same gender is featured.

There are also scenes of fist-fighting with heavy blows. Some of these scenes are accompanied by bloodletting.

Coarse language is voiced, but it is not excessive.

The film features the frequent use of coarse language, such as the expletive "f**k", as well as the stronger expletive "motherf**ker", and crude verbal sexual references, such as references to "cocks**ker", "c**t", etc. by the main characters, usually uttered in an aggressive manner.

The above would be more appropriate for an older audience.

The film contains several depictions of drug use, including portrayals of one of the main characters who can be seen lighting a bong several times throughout the film.

Set during the aftermath of the Cronulla race riots in Sydney in 2005, 'Down Under' is a dark comedy about two groups of rival hotheads, one of whom is of Lebanese migrant origin, while the other belongs to the non-migrant "white" population, who clash with disastrous consequences.
