AQUAMAN is a superhero action film in which the heir to the throne of the undersea kingdom of Atlantis tries to unite the land and sea kingdoms.

Violence

Frequent scenes of violence include fights featuring heavy blows and the use of bladed weapons. There are brief impalings and slashings, and brief sight of a creature's green blood after it is stabbed. There is limited injury detail.

Threat

There are several scenes of threat, some of which are sustained and which include creatures attacking people.

The film also contains some mild bad language (for example, 'dick', 'son of a bitch', 'shit', 'bastard', 'screw you', 'ass', 'butt', 'hell', 'damn').

Precuts information

During post-production, the distributor sought and was given advice on how to secure the desired classification. Following this advice, certain changes were made prior to submission

Note: The following text may contain spoilers

This work was originally seen for advice. The company was advised the film was likely to be classified 15 but that their preferred 12A classification could be achieved by reducing bloody detail in two scenes. When the film was submitted for formal classification the bloody detail had been reduced - by means of reducing the amount of blood visible on screen rather than by making any 'cuts' - and the film was classified 12A. No footage has been removed from the film.
