Violence & Gore
There are two sequences on board slave ships which show slaves being whipped and abused. These sequences include, among other things, shootings, slashings, and drownings. (The drowning is graphic: people are chained to a net full of rocks and then one by one pulled by the rocks into the ocean, screaming the whole time.) One of the scenes includes a death in childbirth with the body thrown overboard. These scenes are very bloody indeed, even to the point of blood spraying on a character's face from a lashing. Also a man is shown being run through with a large sword, and the sword being drawn out afterwards. Compared to those sequences, the other incidents of violence are almost inconsequential.
A number of men who have been shot to death in battle are shown.
A woman carrying a baby commits suicide by purposely sitting on the side of the ship and falling off.
