MPAA Rated R for graphic battle sequences throughout, some sexuality and nudity

Sex & Nudity

  • Men wear a capes with shorts as their battle gear.
  • There is a suggestive scene where a topless adolescent girl who is high on fumes rolls around on the floor while an old man whispers in her ear. Breasts seen for about a minute
  • Xerxes has strippers in his tent, who prance around with breasts and buttocks visible
  • A nude man looks out a window and his butt is seen. He goes to sit down, and you see full frontal nudity, but it is all in shadow
  • Some female dresses are pretty revealing
  • Extended love scene between Leonidas and the queen; viewers can see her nude breasts and his butt. The adolescent Oracle writhes and sways while wearing a sheer cloth that reveals her breasts. A character unwillingly has sex to procure a politician's favor. Although no nudity is shown in that scene, the aggressor whispers menacingly: "This will not be fast. You will not enjoy this." Xerxes' lair is depicted like an orgy, with various half-dressed Persian women kissing, moaning, and having sex.
  • Severe nudity
  • A man makes a remark about a young man being too young to have felt the warmth of a woman.
  • A woman wears a low-cut dress that reveal cleavage and there is an erotically-presented scene involving multiple naked women. Several women topless . It must be pointed out that while there is upper body female/male nudity in this scene, there is no genital nudity.
  • Leonidas' buttocks are briefly shown in the shadows.
  • There is a lengthy very graphic sex scene with explicit female breast nudity.

Violence & Gore

  • A man got kicked in the chest by an angry spartan soldier.
  • A wall made of human corpses can be seen.
  • A ton of blood splatters throughout the movie
  • Over-the-top battle-scene violence, including graphic decapitations, severed limbs, mutilated bodies piled high, arrow-filled torsos, etc. Young Spartan boys are forced to furiously fight each other. The Spartan mottos are "No retreat, no surrender" and "No prisoners, no mercy."
  • A wolf with large fangs and claws and glowing red eyes snarls and circles around a boy, the boy walks into a cave, the wolf follows and lunges for the boy, but it is trapped in a narrow passageway and the boy stabs it through the mouth (we see the shadow on the cave wall of the spear entering the wolf and we hear it whimper).
  • A man is struck through the chest by a spear and falls from his horse.
  • A man loses the use of his eye during a battle. (Not the actual eye.)
  • We see a boy being taken from his mother at the age of 7 (the mother struggles against two guards holding her, as does the boy).
  • Many ships are crushed during a heavy storm
  • A man grieves over the death of his son.


  • Several uses of 'Holy mackerel'
  • Colorfully worded insults like: "motherless dogs," "philosophers and boy-lovers," etc.
  • 4 uses of hell
  • 1 use of whore.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • An adolescent girl gets high on fumes and acts suggestively

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The body count is very high making up to close to 2000 people dying (many which is shown onscreen because of the graphic battle scenes).
  • The violence in this movie is graphic. Very bloody and violent movie.
