Robots are tortured by having their feet burned; limbs are also torn off. Characters are fed to huge creatures. A crowd is threatened with a hand held bomb.

Door falls and crushes character. Characters receive electrical shocks. Numerous battle sequences occur with characters fighting against each other in spaceships or hand-to-hand combat. Characters use weapons like blasters, lightsabers, and various rudimentary devices such as slings, spears, bows, arrows, traps, rocks and logs. Characters race dangerously on speeding vehicles and crash into trees. Vessels explode, loss of life assumed.
