MPAA Rated R for language throughout including some descriptions of violence

Sex & Nudity

  • A man is shown resting in his underwear for about 5 seconds.
  • One mild sex reference.

Violence & Gore

  • Little on-screen violence, but the outpost (and the film's title) refers to a soldier who was killed in battle, and in one scene, the aftermath of the death of a sergeant (no blood visible, but extremely heartbreaking) is seen with the face visible, with a soldier nearby crying.
  • Various descriptions of violent acts throughout, along with some brief images of children wounded as a result of collateral damage when the soldiers fired upon suspected insurgents and some images of bodies that are covered up.
  • The little violence in the film is not graphic, but it is highly emotional due to the reality of it.


  • Constant use of typically salty military language, in context.
  • The f-word is said well over 50 times, many of which are combined with "mother" (including about 10 consecutive ones over the course of a minute by 3 particular soldiers.) Multiple other variations on the word are used throughout.
  • S**t and it's variations are also present throughout, with other favorites including "Goddamn" (and it's variations) and use of anatomical terms such as "Ass" and "D*ck" on occasion.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • At least 2 scenes of soldiers smoking.
