AFTER EARTH is a science fiction film set in a future where humans have moved to another planet. General Cypher Raige takes his young son Kitai with him on a training mission but their spaceship crashes on Earth and the son must be remotely guided across dangerous terrain in order to signal for help.

Threat

There are several sequences where Kitai is placed in danger, mostly as he is pursued by various dangerous animals and fantastical creatures. He is sometimes scared, but also resilient and brave.

Violence

Kitai fights back against some of the creatures that attack him, stabbing with a special bladed weapon, but there is no strong gore or injury detail as a result.

Injury detail

Bloody injury detail features when a character is injured in the crash, with some blood seen on clothing. Later, the character has to perform surgery on himself, administering an arterial shunt by cutting into his artery either side of the wound and connecting the two incisions with a tube which fills with blood. His bloody hands are shown holding a scalpel, then pushing the tube into one of the incisions, but the cutting itself is not shown. It is a gory sequence, but within a clearly medical context. Some moderately grisly images include the sight of dead humans who have been impaled on spiky tree branches, which protrude from their chests. These images are brief and very little blood is shown.

The film also contains some very mild bad language, including 'screwed', 'damn' and 'sucked'.
