Violence: This is a Quater Quell, so obviosly there is more creepyness. I had to close my eyes a bit. You can call me scardy cat if you whant.
Sexual Content: Several kisses, a woman drops her dress in an elevator and we see her bare back (not sex-related, she's trying to startle another character and make them uncomfortable).
Frightening or Intense Scenes: A woman dies of a bloody neck wound, killer baboons menace and attack several characters.
Violence: Characters are hit, stabbed, choked and shot but none of the images are close up or particularly bloody. Characters sport nasty, painful-looking blisters caused by an acidic fog.
