This DVD version has been passed '15' because of
The versions for the cinema and another DVD release were passed '12A' and '12 ', respectively, because they were identical in content, in containing only one use of strong language and moderate violence.
In all other respects, this version is the same as the other two. This work also contains frequent use of moderate language – including ‘bitch’, ‘shit’ and ‘arse’. The moderate violence featured is of the standard action movie fare and includes explosions, impressionistic fight scenes and gun battles. There are occasional bloody moments including a brutal cage fight between the main character and a vicious gladiator and another scene which features a slow-motion bullet entering the body of woman. These moments in the work are infrequent and do not linger on bloody injuries. Their inclusion is largely mitigated by the fantastical science-fiction context and well-contained within '15' guidelines which say that 'violence may be strong but may not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury'.
