SEX/NUDITY 1 - Mild kissing, always between married couples (only a few
minor kissing scenes).
VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Three people get knocked down by a tornado/vortex and are
eventually sucked into it and killed by it (in one scene a man is twirling so fast inside
the vortex that his limbs detach from his body as he's spinning). A man freezes to death
and we see a close-up of his purple, frozen face. A man attacks another with a hammer and
there's a small scuffle but no one gets hurt. A man is hit in the face by a rock (we see
blood on his cheek, neck, collar and front of his space suit) and a man cuts his hand and
we see a bit of blood (the blood floats through the spaceship and it's kind of creepy). A
space ship explodes (no one is injured).
PROFANITY 3 - Many mild obscenities and a few insults. [profanity glossary]
DISCUSSION TOPICS - Death of a spouse, aliens, DNA, martyrdom, sacrifice, space
travel, teamwork, love, friendship, risk-taking.
MESSAGE - Trust your instinct to explore because great rewards await those
