MPAA Rated R for strong violence, grisly images and pervasive language

Sex & Nudity

  • Mild references of a women being referred to being a whore
  • Archive footage of little Vietnam boys and girls running naked. Nothing graphic.
  • A women needs to pee. You see her pull down her pants but nothing is shown at all. She referenced another scene of them flirting at a bar and she's going to tricks the man to having sex with her. She approaches for a kiss before someone interrupts them. Nothing happens at all.
  • Blonde woman tells one of the guys if it wouldn't be nice she took of her pants under other circumstances.

Violence & Gore

  • There is a scene where a snake's head is cut off and served by a cook to the tourists to eat.
  • There is a scene where a man shoots a snake into pieces.
  • Includes actual archive footage of REAL DEATH AND GORE from Vietnam, including: (1) (VIDEO) A man shot in the head, falling down, and blood spurting out, (2) (still photo) Dead infant with face literally blown off, (3) (still photo) A woman with her intestines spilled across the floor, (4) (still photos) Napalmed babies and children running naked down the street, with their blackened flesh hanging in strip. There is probably much more, but is seriously disturbing.
  • Throughout the film there are numerous scenes of wartime violence including shooting with graphic wounds and blood spurting, stabbing with blood pouring out of the wounds, explosions, resulting in gore and graphic injuries including bones sticking out and organs spilling everywhere.
  • The very real murder of a Vietcong is shown with the video of him being shot in the head and blood spurting out profusely.
  • VERY GRAPHIC VIOLENCE. Not only is it bloody but very disturbing. Not for the faint of heart.


  • 134 uses of "fuck". Frequent uses of "shit", and "bitch". A few racial slurs are uttered as well

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Some drinking and smoking.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Several intense scenes of violence with unsettling results.
  • Variety of well-timed jump scares and some sequences with insurmountable tension
  • The archival footage of war crimes shown contain legitimate gore and are considerably unsettling.
  • Every scene that contains gore (simulated or real) are played intentionally for unease and fear, and done so effectively.
  • This film depicts the horrors of the Vietnam War in extremely graphic detail, and said depiction is incredibly lifelike. It has plenty of extreme graphic violence and gore, mature topics like PTSD, discrimination and survivor guilt, and very intense scenes, all of which make for a surprisingly extremely mature and down-to-earth portrayal of the true nature of warfare and the consequences of it to create an incredibly intense, disturbing and visceral film.

Violence & Gore

  • A man explodes and the upcoming scene shows his body brutally butchered.
  • A main character is blown up by a mine. You see his arms and legs blown off, with bones sticking out the end, and blood spurting from the severed limbs as he dies, screaming.
  • The main character is violently gunned down by several soldiers. Tons and tons of blood sprays out of his body and onto the ground. We see his body littered with thousands and thousands of bullet holes. This scene is extremely graphic, emotional and brutal.
  • A man throws himself onto a grenade to save his friends. The grenade explodes and kills him. Large puddles of blood form beneath his body.
  • One brief but extremely graphic image of a REAL dead infant from the Vietnam War.
