Sex & Nudity

  • A scene where a woman lies on a beach exhausted. Her clothes are too exhausted and she is lying toward the camera. We can see a good portion of her breasts in this scene.
  • A few shorts scenes of cleavage.
  • A man asks a woman if she is wearing a stay (a corset). He then asks her to take it off so she can breath in the low oxygen level. She takes it off off screen behind a rock. A duck is walking by and the corset gets caught on it's foot and it drags it by two men. Much later she mentions she is wearing a stay.
  • We see a man showering. But there is a rock reaching out in front of his middle so no nudity.
  • A man is in a tree without his pants, although we can only see his upper abdomen. After he falls out of the tree he picks up a sheep to cover his middle. A few nuns are trying to help him but when he tells them he has no pants they turn around.

Violence & Gore

  • A man's body is found poisoned.
  • A man gets knocked on the head unconscious (not gory).
  • A man kills another man. We don't see this but we do see his body afterwards.
  • A man is shot in the arm.
  • A man throws salt in a man's eyes causing him to yell in pain.
  • A man harpoons a spear into a giant lizard's shoulder and also into the inside of his mouth. Other giant lizards run to feast on the dying lizard. A bit gory with some blood.
  • We see a hungry man calling a pet duck. The next scene the duck's owner searches for his pet and finds some feathers and one of the duck's wings with some blood on it.
  • A man tries to strangle another man but is stopped before the man dies.
  • A man is killed by rocks falling on him (not gory).
  • A giant lizard grabs a man by the leg with its tongue. Another man runs to his rescue and stabs the lizard's tongue with a pick causing some blood. The lizard is soon after burned in lava.


  • Blasted D*mn and Blasted D*mnation.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A classic "Indiana Jones" type scene where a bolder is crashing down a long strait cave as the main characters run for their lives.
  • A man gets separated in an underground cave away from his friends. As he is looking for his friends the sandy ground he is walking on sinks in and gives way. He grabs hold of the solid ground now hanging high above the ground below. He soon falls and is not hurt.This could be a little intense for young children.
  • We see a dead man's face. Could be disturbing to some people.
  • A scene where the main characters run for their lives from giant lizards. A woman's foot gets caught on a rope and she can't move.
  • We see the the main characters exploring an ancient city underground but they don't see a giant lizard that they keep walking by. This could be intense for young children.
