Sex & Nudity

  • Not an issue, though there are images of women swimming in bikinis.

Violence & Gore

  • Though the movie doesn't feature wall-to-wall violence.
  • It contains life-changing moments, notably the brief but powerful imagery of dolphins being slaughtered.
  • We mainly see the water turn red with blood.
  • There are images of fishermen striking blows and images of struggling dolphins.
  • Otherwise, there is the almost-constant threat of violence, as the filmmakers attempt to get close to the killing grounds.
  • There are aggressive face-offs, and other vaguely sinister confrontations.

Profanity

  • Very brief, sporadic language.
  • Including uses of "Goddammit" and "Christ." One use of "shit"
  • One brief use of the middle finger.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A man is seen smoking a cigarette.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Contains brief, but disturbing and gruesome imagery around the slaughter of dolphins in Taiji, Japan.
  • The movie is informative, interesting, and inspiring, but contains shocking pictures: blood-red water, fishermen striking blows, and dolphins struggling and dying.
  • Also, there's an almost constant tension in the film, an ever-present threat of violence.
  • The goal of the movie is to inspire audiences that something can be done, but sensitive and younger viewers might be disturbed.
  • This is a very emotionally jarring movie.
