Sex & Nudity

  • Some innocuous flirtation among a couple of adults.
  • We see a boy unzip his pants in a bathroom and is seen sitting on the toilet with his pants down; a man unzips his pants and a squirrel jumps out.

Violence & Gore

  • A deer is shot and killed by hunters.
  • A man goes through the window of a boat and is knocked onto rocks on the shore. A boy runs into a tree and gets a bloody nose from the impact.
  • A man grabs a boy by the face and threatens to take him away from his mother (the boy is obviously scared); also, a man renders a boy unconscious by grabbing his mouth with some type of noxious concoction. Two boys almost fall off a roof; a boy gets knocked unconscious.
  • A robot blows up many tanks and armored vehicles and a robot bites into a power station and gets electrocuted (the scene is very noisy and scary). A robot is run over by a train and knocked out; also, a robot gets shot by tanks, bazookas, machine guns, armed aircraft and other types of military artillery.
  • A big robot carries a boy in his hand, towering above the trees, and the boy looks scared.
  • We see a brain on TV that moves across the floor by itself.
  • A lot of scatological humor (diarrhea, constipation).

Profanity

  • "Oh my God" is said at least twice in a non-sacred sense: first by an adult male, later by the young main character.
  • A couple of anatomical references, several scatological references and mild obscenities; some name-calling.
  • "Damnit" is used by the antagonist's boss when he phones him at home.
  • "What the hell" is used in a handful of scenes.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Some locals attribute a fisherman's story about the giant to "either whiskey or beer."
  • A government agent smokes and carries a pipe several times during the film.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Hogarth watches a "scary" movie; a giant brain starts eating a man's head, but the scene is cut off by an antenna being broken off.
  • A fisherman's boat is sunk. At first, we believe he is lost at sea and drowns, but he is washed up on shore.
  • Hogarth hears something either upstairs or on the roof and slowly goes to find the source of the noise. Later, Hogarth slowly makes his way through a darkened forest (with his flashlight) and follows the destructive path of something obviously quite large.
  • In the "Signature Edition" a newly added scene shows the Giant having a dream containing his memories both on Earth and additionally shows a possibility where he originally came from. He remembers the other robots resembling him destroying a city and blowing up an entire planet which awakens him in fear.
  • The climax and ending can be very emotionally intense for many.
