Swordplay, guns and cannons permeate the screen in this swashbuckling adventure, making violence the greatest concern for parents who are trying to decide if their child is ready for this high seas adventure. Many characters are shot, with some blood shown (including gunshots to the head). Multiple characters are impaled with swords (this includes depictions of blades penetrating their bodies and protruding out the other side). Other violence ranges from one-on-one fisticuffs to grand encounters between ships. The later results in cannons blasting and dozens of secondary characters being killed and tossed into the sea. An opening scene shows the hanging of many people who oppose the government (although the actual point of death is not shown, piles of bodies are loaded on carts and taken away). Sexual content is limited to a few low-cut dresses and a married couple’s implied encounter. Language consists of a couple of mild expletives and name-calling. Alcohol use is limited to only two short scenes in this episode.
