- A young man and a young woman kiss, the young woman removes her dress, and we see her bare buttocks and profile of her bare breast; the young woman climbs into bed with the young man, the young man gets on top of the young woman and they have sex (we see him thrusting).
► The bare chest of a woman is seen, and her breasts are visible under body paint. Throughout the movie we see shirtless men with their bare chests and backs visible. On multiple occasions we see a woman wearing a tight, cleavage-exposing corset. Throughout the movie we see paintings, statues and reliefs of shirtless and nude men; in paintings rough outlines of male genitals are visible.
► A man makes a crude come-on to a young woman, asking if she could use only her tongue to open the hard shell of a nut; the young woman declines his advances. A man makes a crude sexual joke to a young man in reference to four young women he identified as virgins, saying he would "not mind knowing" the four young women for the night. A man makes a crude remark to a young man and a young woman, implying that they had previously had sex. A young man says that another young man had been conceived when his mother was raped. A man tells a young man that "his seed" is strong" and he then implies that generations of people will be his offspring. A woman asks her son if she will have grandchildren before she dies, and the young man jokingly responds that lighting candles will not cause babies to be born.

- During an extended battle sequence, we see the following: Soldiers and men fight using knives, swords and sharpened staves to stab and cut one another, and blood flies through the air; a man chops off the head of another man and we see the man's body fall to the ground and the bloody head roll next to the body; a man stabs another man in the stomach while holding him from behind, and he drops the bloody body to the ground with the sword still in his stomach; in slow-motion we see a man throw a lance through the air, it stabs a man in the throat and blood sprays from the wound; in slow-motion a group of men stab one another with swords, we see two men sliced across the chest and blood sprays from the wounds; a man stabs another man in the stomach and chest and then kicks him to the ground; a man is seen lying on the ground with blood pouring out of his ear and a cut on his arm; a man fires an arrow at a man, the man explodes into blood and gore and we see masked soldiers swarm over him; a man stabs a man in the back and chest, and we see blood as the man uses a trident to stab another man through the neck; a man holds back the head of another man and slices through his neck, and blood bubbles from the gaping wound; and in slow motion we see a man killing numerous men, and he slowly runs through a crowd of soldiers, slicing through them with a knife and their body parts drop to the side (at least four of the men are seen being cut in half).
► During a battle sequence we see a man use a chain to whip through the body of a man; he then uses the chain to knock over five other men, the chain cuts through the bodies of two of the men, and we see their heads and torsos separate and fall to the ground.

► A man forces a young man to watch as he slices the throat of his mother; the young man screams and we see blood gurgle from the large cut, the man lifts the woman's head and gory tissue is seen in the flap of her neck, and the man wipes his bloody knife on another man's shirt.
► A man shouts and in a crazed rage throws himself onto a large metal bull positioned over a fire: we hear the man's flesh sizzle as he touches the hot metal, we hear screaming coming from inside the bull and two men help the man push it over, the bull breaks open and the bloody, burnt and shiny bodies of three young women are discovered inside; a young woman cries as she tries to hold the hand of one of the dying young women and moments later they are dead.
► A young man appears from the sky, and crashes a sword into a masked soldier and blood sprays from his crushed body. A young man uses an unseen force to explode four masked soldiers into a spray of gore and blood, throwing the last of the four men into a wall with a massive blood spray shown behind his dead and crushed body (his head and upper body appear to have been blown away).

A masked soldier slices through a man's face and neck and we see blood splatter from the wounds.
► A man attempts to comfort his dying daughter (we see blood coming from a small hole in her neck), and a young man watches as the man is then attacked by another man and struck with a large sword; the man falls to the ground but is later seen unharmed.
► A young man runs through a crowd of soldiers, slicing through the chests of three soldiers, and throwing a sword through the chest of another; the young man throws a spiked pole through the air and it stabs a soldier in the chest (a massive amount of blood is seen spraying in slow motion from the wounds of the soldiers as they fall to the ground) and several soldiers surround the young man and trap him under a net.

► A masked soldier shoves an injured young man with bloody scratches on his face, against a wall and he lifts up a hammer and aims it at the young man's crotch. We hear a very graphic squishing sound as a man narrates that the young man will never be able to have children -- implying the young man's genitals had been crushed.
► A man uses a whip made of fire to whip a young man: the force of the whip knocks the young man through a rock cliff, we see a giant hole in the cliff and later see the young man's body, which appears to be partially crushed and decaying, set into a round stone monument.

► A man fires an arrow into a building, the building shakes and we later see the building implode, killing people that were trapped inside, including a band of mythical soldiers that had been enchanted into killing an entire race of people. A man fires a magical bow, the arrow breaks through a massive door, and the force of the door exploding knocks several men back.

► We see the vision experienced by a young boy, with men in the middle of a battle with swords being stabbed through men's chests and arms and blood spraying. A young woman tells three other young women that she had a dream that mythical creatures were released and will take over the world; as the young woman speaks, we see men that had been trapped inside a cube being released, light pours from them and we hear screaming and the clashing of swords. A young man dreams that men trapped inside a cube are released when a man fires an arrow made of energy into the cube; the cube explodes into a bolt of light and the young man wakes up with a start.

A man shouts to a crowd that another man had overthrown a monastery; we hear the crowd shouting angrily as the man instructs them to move if they want to live. A young man shouts at a man and the man warns the young man that a village of people will die. A young woman's voiceover explains that multiple villages had been destroyed by a king, who also made sure all pregnant women were killed and the rest of the people taken as slaves. A young man asks a young woman why she would risk her life to save his and the young woman explains that she had risked her life so that they both would not die. A man says that a young man looks ill (we see the young man slumped over) and that he "will not survive the night" (we later see the young man fully recovered). A man tells a young woman that a young man is destined to defend people from death. A young man tells an older man that he is willing to use force to protect his loved ones. A man asks a young man if he is willing to suffer to protect people he does not know. A young man tries to tempt a man by offering to tell him a place where he can find "slaves and women"; the man dismisses the young man, saying that he already has slaves and women.
