MPAA Rated R for intense, graphic combat

Sex & Nudity

  • While Proximo disagrees with his customer he proceeds to grabbing the mans testicles.
  • The antagonist of the movie has a sexual desire for his sister. He asks her to "stay with him", she replies that she will not. In one scene, he leans against her (demanding she open her mouth, which he touches with his fingers) and then slumps against her on a bed, but she leaves.
  • A man asks another man what he says to his dead family. Regarding his wife, he says it's not his business, and they both chuckle.
  • To provoke a main character into attacking him, the antagonist tells him his wife "moaned like a wh*re" when his troops "ravaged her again and again".
  • A man's buttocks are exposed and slapped to see if he is fit for the arena.
  • A man and a woman kiss.
  • The villain threatens to kill his sister's son unless she agrees to have a sexual relationship with him.

Violence & Gore

  • A man treats a graphic wound on his body, which we see up close and for several seconds.
  • Multiple scenes showing bloody violence, much of it in brief shots.
  • There is a rather graphic battle near the beginning (as well as a couple other shorter ones), and a few bloody arena battles.
  • Men are killed with blows and dull objects, and stabbed with swords, knives, and spears (often with brief blood).
  • There are a few instances of dismemberment and couple of decapitation, we usually see a flash of red. Detail is often hard to make out due to how quick shots are. An opponent is also cut in half by blades on a chariot's wheel during combat; graphic, but brief.
  • An attacking tiger is stabbed with a sword, no blood is shown.
  • A man slices off a tattoo on his upper arm, with a bit of bleeding.


  • A few insults, and one use of 'shit'.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • There are a few scenes with the infrequent drinking of beverages that may or may not be alcoholic in nature.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Some pretty intense fights (gladiatorial or otherwise), and a violent escape.
  • The violence is the only thing parents really need to worry about. Most of the sexual references will go straight over kids heads.
