Sex & Nudity
- We see Honey wearing a cream colored blouse tied in front at the waist with her bikini top underneath. The shape of her erect nipples can be seen through the blouse fabric. (1:08:47 to 1:19:17)
- We see Honey and James nude in a contamination shower. Only their shoulders and stomachs are visible (1:19:28 to 1:19:52).
- When Honey exits the contamination shower, she appears nude, although she is actually wearing a nude colored swim suit (1:19:53 to 1:19:56).
- We see Honey's bare back and shoulders as she changes her clothes. When Bond walks in, she holds an article of clothing over her chest. Minimal side breast is visible. (1:24:41to 1:25:08)
- After a flirtatious conversation at a gathering, James Bond finds Sylvia Trench nude wearing a robe in his bedroom (0:15:24 to 0:16:17). Both standing up, they kiss and Bond moves his hands up and down her body.
- (0:51:40 to 0:53:42) Ms. Taro greets James in a towel/robe that reveals ample amounts of cleavage. Bond unzips the robe and Taro pins it to her chest with her hands so as not to reveal her chest. James Bond and Ms. Taro have kiss and it is implied that they have sex, they are both seen lying in bed but there is no nudity.
- There is dialogue about the rape of a female character.
Violence & Gore
- Commander Strangways is shot multiple times by 3 different people, though no blood or bullet holes is shown, only him jolting as he is shot.
- When Dr. No's henchmen invade Commander Stangways' station house, his female partner is shot through a window and you see her lying on the floor with a bloody bullet hole in her back, when she is turned over blood can be seen in several places on her blouse although the blood seen is unrealistically colored and seems artificial.
- A man holds Bond while another man prepares to stab him. He kicks the second man into some crates, and then throws the first man into the crates.
- Bond fights a man, and flips and hits him a few times. The man commits suicide by poisoning himself with cyanide in a cigarette, though not much is shown.
- A photographer breaks a flash bulb and cuts Quarrell down the side of his face with it. Quarrell merely wipes off the blood and shows no evidence of suffering pain.
- A boat machine-guns a beach where Bond and 2 others are hiding though no one is shot.
- Bond sneaks up behind a man with a knife and grabs him. It is implied that the man is stabbed to death, although the camera cuts away before Bond stabs the man and soon cuts back to Bond letting the body sink into the water. No blood is shown.
- Bond and Quarrel shoot at a large tank-like vehicle with a flamethrower, painted to look like a dragon.
- Dr. No orders his men to torture Bond. They hit him repeatedly while a woman watches, but the more brutal torture happens off screen. We hear him grunting and crying out in pain and the baddie remains oblivious. We later see the man bloodied, bruised and his clothes ripped after the beatings and torture.
- Bond chokes one man to death from behind, though there is a translucent screen blocking the view, so no detail is seen. It is implied that he is either dead or unconscious.
- Bond pushes and punches several people over the railings/banisters and they land painfully several meters below and are implied to either be injured or dead.
- There's a brief car chase, and one of the cars flies off a cliff and crashes, resulting in a large explosion.
- Use of "hell" and uses of "damn".
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
- Recreational Drugs: None
- Lots of people are seen smoking, including Bond himself.
- Bond's driver kills himself with a cyanide-embedded cigarette.
- There is a party scene where lots of people are drinking.
- Bond has several vodka martinis (a theme that runs throughout the Bond films).
- Bond and Honey Ryder drink coffee that is drugged.
Frightening & Intense Scenes
- Bond wakes up to find a tarantula crawling up his arm. He knocks it off and kills it with his shoe. Very tense.
- Several deaths.
- There are several points where people are threatened with guns.
- It is implied that Dr. No is going to drown a woman to death, though Bond saves her.
Violence & Gore
- Bond wakes up in the middle of the night to find a tarantula in his bed. When the tarantula crawls onto Bond's pillow, Bond throws the pillow onto the ground and hits the tarantula five times on the opposite side of the bed from the camera, killing it. However, the camera does not directly show the spider as it is being hit and killed.
- Bond shoots Professor Dent in cold blood, who rather violently falls off his chair and onto the floor. He shoots him again when he is on the floor and his body judders. No blood or bullet holes are shown. It is erroneously indicated in some online sources that Bond shoots the man 6 times; this was apparently the original intent of the scene, but it was reduced to 2 shots in the final edit. TV showings usually only show Bond shooting once. This scene is out of character for the Bond film series and as such is potentially disturbing to younger viewers more familiar with the light-hearted later Bond films.
- Quarrel is hit by a flamethrower. We see him get burnt for a few seconds at a medium distance, and hear his screams of pain for a short time, the scene is very dark with poor visibility, though no more is shown.
- Bond and Dr. No engage in an intense fight in the end. Not bloody, but somewhat brutal.
- Dr. No falls into a boiling pool of heavy water, and there is an uncut scene of him slowly going under and dying. The last that we see is his metal hand grabbing on to a post after he is dead. Can be disturbing for younger children.
Frightening & Intense Scenes
- Honey Ryder describes being raped, although in subtle terms. She then talks of killing the man who raped her by hiding a black widow spider in his sleeping net. She notes that it took him a whole week to die.
