Sex & Nudity

Violence & Gore

  • At the beginning of the film, a carnotaur chases after a group of dinosaurs, steps into a dinosaur nest and crushes most of the eggs, then kills a herbivorous dinosaur on screen. We see it eating it from the distance.
  • Bruton and a scout encounter two carnotaurs, one of which grabs the scout (and we briefly see what looks like it pulling off some flesh in the distance) and the other that charges Bruton (and we see his point of view of it approaching him). Bloody wounds later appear on Bruton.
  • The fights between Kron and Aladar, as well as the carnotaurs and our main heroes are also quite violent. There is no gore, but wounds are shown.
  • A carnotaur goes after Kron, chasing him up a rocky slope until cornering him on the edge of a precipice. The two then fight (tail hitting, biting, etc.) with Aladar and Neera joining the fight with more tail hitting until the carnotaur falls off the edge (but not before briefly grabbing ahold of Aladar before losing that grip). Kron and Aladar get smacked against rocks during the fight.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • What starts as a pretty-looking meteorite storm turns scary when a large meteorite crashes into the sea and explodes like a nuclear bomb (the resulting shockwave knocks the lemurs down). Aladar and his lemur family then try to flee the ensuing wall of flames that quickly approaches them, as well as more meteorites that crash down all around them. They must then leap from a cliff into the sea below to avoid the fire and other dangers. This scene is pretty intense.
  • Hiding in a large cave during a thunderstorm, Aladar, his lemur family, Baylene and Eema realize that two carnotaurs are just outside the cave entrance (that's partially veiled by a waterfall of sorts created by the rain). Aladar ends up just on the other side of that waterfall and freezes there, hoping the large meat eater doesn't spot him. It does, however, and then chases him back into the cave as he tries to climb up a rocky slope inside the cave. The carnotaur then grabs Aladar by the tail and tries to pull him back down the slope (where the two carnotaurs fight above him over which gets to have him for dinner). Bruton then bashes into the two carnotaurs, allowing Aladar to escape. A large amount of rocks/roofing then falls onto Aladar, Bruton and the two intruders.
