Sex & Nudity
- Same woman has some of her walking and running shots that shows her breasts jiggling violently.
- A female newscaster in a yellow dress shows off her cleavage
- A woman is seen at a bar in a white tank top that shows her midriff and cleavage. Neither of these is nudity.
- You see a naked man in the bath tub. His private parts are obscured when he gets up but you can clearly see the rest of his body naked. He is then shown with a towel around his waist.
- The closest thing to a sex scene in this movie is the same woman at the bar is scantily clad on the beach in a string bikini top and cut off short shorts straddling a man and kissing him. The camera pans down the whole side of her body giving a clear shot of the side of her buttocks.
- That same woman is seen doing physical therapy with a wounded soldier in a tank top and spandex short shorts she is shown running in this top that reveals much of her cleavage. This is not nudity or sex.
- Same woman is shown at the end wearing a white dress that reveals cleavage. Her and her boyfriend kiss again.
Violence & Gore
- This movie is full of destruction and contains destruction of places like Hawaii and Hong Kong and other major cities.
- Multiple ships, both human and alien, are sunk, almost always accompanied by massive explosions and eardrum-rending noise. Alien shells embed themselves in hulls and then explode, ripping boats apart. We see scrap metal fly and wreckage sink, dragging dozens, perhaps hundreds of people into the depths. A sonic boom blows out windows and makes the faces of sailors shake like Jell-O molds. But perhaps the most fearsome weapon in the aliens' arsenal is the metallic shredder, the edges of which tear through metal (cutting through an entire ship, sinking it) and concrete (causing part of a freeway to collapse, sending several cars crashing into a gaping chasm).
- Even when the alien ships crash, they're deadly. One hits a satellite on the way into the atmosphere, breaking apart as it descends. A chunk smashes into a Hong Kong skyscraper, sending the building tumbling. In news footage, we see wreckage and fleeting riots in the streets. We hear that 25,000 people have been killed.
- While the body count is undeniably high, the movie rarely shows much blood beyond lacerated and bruised faces. We do see countless injured people strewn about ship decks or being taken to infirmaries.
- The aliens engage in fist-fights with humans and one punch sends three alien teeth flying in slow motion. They destroy two police jeeps tearing them apart and leaving the corpses in the resulting wreckage. Alex falls hard on his back while breaking into a convenience store. He's Tasered twice by police officers while trying to escape and we see the resulting taser wounds on his back the next day with him complaining of the pain.
- One scene is set in a veterans hospital with large numbers of amputees, with and without prosthetic limbs. They are all old injuries and no open wounds are shown.
- 1 not fully enunciated F word "what the F" Other's include ass, damn, hell, bitch and 1 use of "goddamn" and mahalo mother...... Also shit is said many times throughout the movie.
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
- The first time we see Alex, he's in a bar for his birthday, drinking shots and beer with Stone (his brother) and seems to be drunk/clumsy. This makes him act stupidly/illegally with very minor consequences. (Note to editors: any additional items added will be marked as "spoilers", regardless)
Frightening & Intense Scenes
- The metallic shredders from Alien ships alone are very much frightening and intense in their destruction on Naval ships and Cities.
- By the title of the film it's very intense. "this is a very vague statement"
