MPAA Rated PG-13 for intense prolonged sequences of disaster and peril

Sex & Nudity

  • A young man and a young woman kiss.
  • A young man and a young woman caress each other lovingly while talking, and a man and a woman hug.
  • Men and women dance close together, but this is neither sex nor nudity.
  • A woman wears a very low-cut and tight-fitting dress while singing on stage in a sultry manner.
  • A young woman wears a low-cut top that reveals cleavage through most of the movie.
  • A woman talks about "bunking" with a man for free passage.
  • A man talks about his significant other (another man) and about how he has found someone else.
  • A man reprimands his daughter in several scenes about wearing a revealing top and presumably about not wanting her to have sex with her boyfriend while "under his roof."
  • A drunk man makes a sexual joke with some women.

Violence & Gore

  • We watch a man drown: he twitches and thrashes, we hear him gagging and then he is still.
  • A man holds onto the leg of another man who is held by another man, and they dangle in an elevator shaft; one person falls after being shaken off by another person, he is impaled on sharp objects far below and the elevator car falls through and crushes him causing a huge explosion.
  • A man is in flames and runs around screaming. Flames blow through a passageway (it's a flash fire) and people are engulfed as they try to run away.
  • A loose wire flips around, it touches a wet floor and several people are electrocuted (we see them jolt and thrash briefly).
  • A man standing on a girder looks up to see a large piece of machinery falling toward him; the machinery hits him, taking him, and the girder, down.
  • A woman swimming toward an opening is caught on loose wiring, she is pulled up into a beam, she cracks her head and is knocked unconscious (blood stains the water around her head), and she is pulled out of the water and a man performs CPR -- to no avail.
  • Windows in a crowded ballroom shatter due to water pressure, water begins to push and pour through, people begin to run and scream, and we continue to hear screaming from another deck until everyone is dead.
  • A man opens a hatch -- the air pressure created by spinning propellers forces the hatch to open very fast -- and he is hit in the face and his nose is broken (he ends up with a bloody face) and he falls off a platform.
  • A man has a large gash on his leg and blood on his pants.
  • A man pushes his way out from under dead bodies and he is wounded (his mouth and face are bloody).
  • There are scenes of dead bodies with bloody wounds piled on top of each other. There are several scenes of badly burned and charred bodies after flash fires.
  • There are many scenes of bodies floating in the water.
  • A very large wave crashes down on the ship, tipping it over. Just about everyone is thrown around, with people falling from heights. Several people are presumably killed.
  • A tipped cruise ship capsizes, people are thrown, and we see a person crash out of a glass elevator.
  • People climb through an air vent shaft, and one woman is frightened and has to be forced to go. The air vent shaft fills with water and people at the bottom of the shaft get stuck underwater, but later make their way out before they could die.


  • 1 anatomical term, 7 mild obscenities, 1 derogatory term for women, 5 religious profanities, 6 religious exclamations.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • People drink alcohol at a celebration.
  • Men smoke and drink alcohol while gambling.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Anything in the "Violence and Gore" section could be considered intense.
  • We see that Conor is stuck on an upside down piano that's bolted to the floor (now the ceiling).
  • Robert then gets some men to hold up tablecloths or something similar and the boy jumps a decent distance down into it and is okay.
  • Several people swim through passageways that are filled with water and appear trapped a few times.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • In this one scene that could distress viewers who are parents, a young boy gets trapped in rising water and appears to drown, much to the horror of his mother. However, the young boy does not drown and he survives.
  • Two men dangle from the edge of an elevator shaft with the elevator above them. A third man encourages one of them to shake the other one off or they will both die. The first man dangling shakes off the man hanging onto his leg and lets him fall to his death.
