SEX/NUDITY 4 - A lot of sexual innuendo and a few kisses. Twice, we see a
nude but sheet-covered couple in bed; in one of the scenes, they're kissing and embracing
passionately (his chest and both of their shoulders, backs and arms are visible). We see a
clothed man and woman talking, then briefly rolling around and giggling in bed. While in a
brothel, three women undress a man (his bare backside and chest are visible) and it's
implied he has intercourse with them. We see many women in cleavage-revealing dresses, a
woman's bare back as she's powdering her shoulders and a nude woman and a topless woman in
VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - We see a dead woman with some blood splattered on her arm.
Gunfire is exchanged in two scenes; we see several people jerk and fall down after they've
been shot (no blood is seen). A man is shot in the chest, kicked and then shot in the head
(we see some blood on his clothing and hands). An angry mob storms a prison and we see
many prisoners stabbed; later, we see many bodies lying on the ground. We see two people
hung and a man beheaded by a guillotine (we see him strapped into place and then see and
hear the blade fall). A man's back is sliced with a knife, a man's neck is snapped and a
man is stabbed in the back (we hear a squishy noise). A couple of instances of threatening
with guns, a sword fight, two fistfights and a scuffle. A woman slaps another and a man is
punched. Several people are dragged by soldiers in different scenes (one of the men being
dragged has a bloody face). A man is bound to a chair and it's implied he's been tortured
and interrogated; we later see him looking sickly in bed, with bloody scabs on his face. A
man knocks over a table, then throws a chair through a window and jumps out of it.
PROFANITY 2 - A scatological reference and a couple of mild obscenities and
insults. [profanity glossary]
