Sex & Nudity
mild
Sex & Nudity Reason
Prostitutes stand on a corner. Very mild. A man wonders out loud if "their plumbing is the same?" Dead male alien bodies are exposed in a morgue, but no private areas are shown (as is usual). A female alien dances in a strip club, and her breast and nipples can be seen through her sheer clothing. She then changes clothes as a man watches and her back and side of her breast is visible. A female alien asks if a man ever "made it" with an alien. When he says no, she calls him a virgin and says that is arousing. She licks his face and his zipper is heard being undone, but he leaves. Sex is sometimes discussed.

Violence & Gore
moderate
Violence & Gore Reason
The film opens on two aliens robbing a store with guns, and one fires and kills a clerk. Police begin a shootout and two other are killed. Some blood. Several instances of punching and hitting. A man is caught wiring a bomb to a car, but is stopped and runs away. A man holds threatens several other people with a bomb. However is knocked out of his hand and he is stopped. A man orders other men to shot and kill two people, but they are interrupted when one of the men are shot. (These are all humanoid aliens.) An alien runs at a man and is shot several times, falls down, gets back up and is shot several more times, killing him. An alien is shot several times but is not killed. The alien then attacks the shooter, who runs away. The alien chases him. There's a few shootings with moderate amounts of bloodshed. Some aliens melt in saltwater (it's like acid to them); mildy gory. A man's neck gets broken. Quick and not gory. The bodies of two men are seen gutted. A man and an alien fall into an ocean and fight, the alien dies and the man begins to drown. Another alien reached in the water and screams with pain, but pulls the man out.

Profanity
moderate
Profanity Reason
*ss is said at least twice. The Lord's name is taken in vain, with three uses of God. D*ckhead is said. B*tch is said. H*ll is said at least twice. Sh*t is said at least 5 times. D*mn is said at least three times, some combined with "god". F*ck is said once.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
moderate
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking Reason
While at home, a man pours liquor into a dirty cup and drinks from it. A police detective smokes while talking at his desk. A man is said to have been on coke when he was killed. An alien and a man get drunk and the man smokes a cigarette. They both wake up hungover. An alien takes a massive amount of a drug and overdoses. Cigarette packs are shown a few times and some background characters smoke. There are references to the fact that the aliens become intoxicated by sour milk. The aliens are seen becoming 'high' on a type of alien drug. The drug has no effect on humans.

Frightening & Intense Scenes
moderate
Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
A jump-scare. The main character is discriminatory toward gathering aliens, and some may find these themes towards minorities to be troubling. The opening shootout and final fight scenes are both fairly intense. The action is violent and intense through much of the film. A scene where an alien is drowned/melted in seawater is disturbing.
