Sex & Nudity

  • A sex scene between a man and his wife is shown repeatedly in flashback. They are fully clothed, so no nudity, but there is explicit caressing, moaning, and thrusting. It is portrayed that they are having sex
  • There is a flashback scene where a woman is naked laying in a tub. you see her naked back and side
  • Lots of sexual comments cracked off by soldiers.
  • Mild innuendos.

Violence & Gore

  • Men are shot, and blood sprays out of the wounds. We see bloody bullet holes. A few times blood splatters onto the camera lens. Lots of explosions from artillery and mortars, and soldiers are blown through the air in violent ways. Several soldiers have shrapnel ripped into them from mortars.
  • A very gory and graphic scene is shown when soldiers come across two dead soldiers. One of them has no legs, while the other one's arm and head have sustained severe bloody trauma. This is shown for a while: it is very bloody and graphic.
  • A soldier screams on the ground while holding his extremely bloody torso. A buddy tries to help him and gives him morphine, but it's implied that the soldier died. This scene is disturbing and bloody, and happens in the middle of a big battle scene.

  • Men are bayonetted very graphically, blood splatters out of wounds, a man blows himself up with a grenade off screen.
