Sex & Nudity
- Many scenes in the movie have partial or full nudity. Genital areas are typically obscured with cloth scraps, artful posing, and camera work, though in a few scenes we do get glimpses of genitalia. For instance, in one scene a woman is shown from the back, bent over with her buttocks in full view, and we get a fleeting peek of labia between her legs.
- The movie is about prehistoric cave people, so most of the characters are wearing only the most primitive sorts of loose clothing which occasionally sways to reveal breasts and buttocks. A few of the characters go completely nude, including the main character, who spends about 2/3 of the movie wearing nothing but a sort of body paint. Many of the female characters go topless.
- There are a few sex scenes.
Violence & Gore
- There are several fighting scenes in the movie. People are stabbed with stone blades, clubbed, shot with arrows, and smashed by rocks wielded as weapons. In a particularly grisly scene, an ape-man is impaled through the mouth with a spear.
- In one scene, we see blood squirting from a wound.
- A man's genitals are viciously bitten.
- A man is mauled by a bear.
- Of the sex scenes mentioned above, one is clearly a rape, and another is a borderline case.
- All of this serves to advance the plot, rather than portray violence for its own sake.
- Not a word.
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
Frightening & Intense Scenes
- Many very intense scenes where the 3 main characters end up in peril during their journey. Much of this is amplified by the equally intense music.
