MPAA Rated R for some strong violence, and language.

Sex & Nudity

  • Contains only infrequent sexual references. In one scene, one character ridicules another by gesticulating with his hands to indicate "balls" and a "tiny cock". Also contains a brief scene of intimacy in which a shirtless man and a woman (wearing a nightgown) are kissing in bed, and the woman moans "Your Majesty". Her nipples are visible for a prolonged amount of time through her light sheer nightgown.
  • A young man and woman are having sex. The man tells the woman to stop and she sits up. There is no nudity, but the woman's upper body can be observed through her nightgown.

Violence & Gore

  • Contains infrequent strong bloody violence during the course of the film. The strongest moments occur when a man is executed via beheading. The decapitation is briefly depicted onscreen, but further detail isn't depicted. In another scene, a child is impaled with a sword (the sword protrudes through their torso but doesn't penetrate the front of their clothes). Another child is seen carrying their decapitated head, and the decapitated head is briefly depicted in a wide shot.
  • Also contains scenes of moderate war violence, involving swordfighting and hand-to-hand combat. Blood and injury is not easily discernible during these sequences as the combatants are usually wearing armour and/or are covered in mud. There is little emphasis on pain or injury during these scenes. Another character is briefly stabbed in the back of the head, but due to low lighting, injury detail is not discernible.


  • Contains only infrequent use of coarse language throughout the film, including three or four uses of "fuck", as well as a single use each of "cock" and "whoring".

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Contains some depiction of recreational alcohol consumption, including scenes in bars.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Scenes of bloody violence and war combat may be distressing for some viewers. A beheading scene and the depiction of a child carrying the decapitated head of another may be considered to be particularly disturbing.
