This quest for the Holy Grail involves the use of pistols, semiautomatic weapons, swords, a ship rudder and other weapons that result in death and bloody injuries. A graphic beheading (which shows the decapitated body part rolling along the floor), exploding vehicles, fires and a plane downed by a flock of birds also add to a growing death toll. Corpses and decaying bodies are shown along with numerous moments of peril. A man ages rapidly and turns to dust after ingesting a liquid. A female character implies that she has shared sexual favors with both a father and son. Passionate kissing is seen. Some profanities and terms of Deity are contained in the script along with depictions of alcohol and cigarette use.
