Sex & Nudity

  • When we are first introduced to Oto Island, there are two elderly women on the beach. It's not clear if you see the side of their breast or their bra, but no nipples if it was the side.

Violence & Gore

  • For a Godzilla movie, this one is surprisingly graphic. It isn't campy, fun, or silly, rather it takes itself very seriously, and features a dark, depressing tone.
  • Godzilla smashes several buildings containing people, and in one scene uses his atomic breath to incinerate some. People are seen falling several stories to their death.
  • People are seen bleeding and being taken into medical care immediately.

Profanity

  • In the Japanese version of the film, a young boy repeatedly says "Damned beast!" while Godzilla destroys the city. One use of "Bastard"

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Several passengers on board a cruise ship drink alcohol. In the American version of the film, Steve Martin smokes on board a plane.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A young woman and her child huddle by a building as Gojira approaches. She tells the child, "We will see Daddy soon." It is assumed that they are killed.
  • In the Japanese version, Godzilla burns down a school, igniting children in flames, killing them.
  • Church choirs sing in despair, people are seen dying or dead in hospitals, and kids are heard bawling in the background.
  • The destruction the monster causes, as well as the sight of the suffering, wounded and radiated patients at a hospital are also disturbing.
  • Some may find the monster's signature roar frightening.
