Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Hercules (2014)...

Violence: This movie includes frequent battle scenes with countless characters being beaten, stabbed and shot at with arrows. Characters are literally mowed down by a man riding a chariot with blades extending out the sides. Scenes show stacks of corpses on the ground, some are shown in detail with blood effects. A man is seen fighting numerous huge beasts that are eventually defeated; later he opens a bag that reveals a large serpent’s head and a human head. A man licks blood from a rotting head on a spit. A statue crushes a man. Brief mention is made of women being “spoiled”, suggesting they were raped.

Sexual Content: A woman is briefly seen naked from the rear. Infrequent sexual innuendos are heard, including a couple of bondage remarks. A woman gives birth to a baby, we briefly see the naked child (covered in some blood). A couple of women are seen in low cut dresses. A female warrior is dressed in a leather bra and shorts. A brief mention of implied rape is heard.

Language: A single sexual expletive, at least three scatological terms and other infrequent profanities are heard.

Drugs/Alcohol: Characters are seen drinking, and a couple of them appear to be inebriated. One characters suggests another has been “taking herbs,” implying he’s using drugs.
