MPAA Rated PG-13 for violence, some bloody images, and sexual material

Sex & Nudity

  • Characters refer to having often sex while at a dinner party.
  • Seductive dancing positions.
  • A few verbal references to having sex; a woman tells another that she has lots of sex with her fiancé and a married couple brag that they've already had sex multiple times that day.
  • A man pushes the woman against a wall and begins kissing her, but she leads him outside. She then quotes Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra, the lines serving as double entendre as the she and her partner get into various (fully clothed) sexual positions. She rubs her backside against his front, and he moans. She then grabs his belt and begins undoing his buckle but then they are distracted.
  • A scene where a man dances with a woman and lifts her up so that she is essentially sitting on his shoulders and then lowers her so that her one leg remains above his head.
  • References by two different women to the copious amounts of sex that they are having with their significant other.

Violence & Gore

  • Some bloody violence with knives, guns and tools. In one scene, blood is shown soaking through clothing in a brutal close-up.
  • A character's distorted face is shown in a close-up after a graphic explosion.
  • A character is killed during the war as he accidentally steps through a tripwire which explodes him. Very brief but his body is shown consumed with flames for a split-second as his friend tries to warn him.
  • A character has her throat slashed with a scalpel in a black-and-white flashback scene. The actual act is more implied than shown, though her blood spurts, speckling the wall in front of her.
  • Two men engage in an obscured fistfight.
  • A man is shot in the throat. A small trickle of blood and his shocked facial expression is shown.
  • A character is shown dead with a bullet hole and a small, coagulated trickle of blood in the side of her head.
  • A jump-scare occurs where a crocodile leaps out of the river and devours a bird nearby. No blood and brief.


  • There is very little profanity (a**, d***, h***).

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Some characters can be seen smoking, and there is the drinking of champagne while at a party.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The entire movie is filled with suspense and all of the plot is suspenseful.
  • A jump-scare occurs when a dead woman's body is shown pressing up against a window after her throat had been slashed and the killer had dumped her body into the water wheel.
  • Two people are almost killed when a large rock falls from the structure above them.
  • A poisonous snake breaks free from a snake charmer and slithers menacingly towards the camera.
  • A man confesses to having considered suicide when his lover suddenly left him to marry another man.
  • Poirot tearfully explains that his wife was killed during a wartime attack and the opening flashback when he fears showing her his scarred face can be sad for certain viewers.


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • A character can be seen being shot in the leg, although we don't see the wound itself, the man can be seen in visible pain.
  • A man is given a very realistic scar on his face from a bomb that had exploded.
  • A man shoots himself in the leg with a gun.
  • A man got shot in the neck causing blood to spill out

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A character falls unconscious when his champagne is drugged.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • We see five characters deaths; some are very clear and can be frightening to most viewers. While the detective is trying to figure out who the killer is, there is much suspense and characters get killed off while the detective is devising what to do.
  • A mother to a victim and his fiancé are seen very distraught over the death of him. This scene is intense because of the emotions being conveyed.
