Violence is the biggest (and nearly only) concern in this story about a young Roman emperor who sets out to find a band of soldiers who will uphold his rule. Lots of combat and conflict ensues, with swords, spears and stones being used to overcome enemies. Many deaths and injuries are depicted, however the portrayal of blood is minimal—especially considering the massive amount of mayhem. Some bothersome moments include a man who cuts off another man’s finger as a punishment (we do not see the actual act), images of dead corpses being hauled away, as well as bloodied faces and blades of weapons. Sexual content is limited to a brief moment when an unmarried man and woman get into bed together. No profanities were noted.
