BEASTS OF NO NATION is a war drama about a young boy who is abducted and forced to fight as a boy soldier in a civil war in an unidentified sub-Saharan African country.

Violence

There is strong bloody violence throughout as combatants and non-combatants alike are shot, hacked to death or blown up with grenades - often with casual indifference. Stronger moments of violence include a prisoner being hacked to death with machetes as part of an obedience test and a woman being shot in the head with an assault rifle at point blank range.

Language

There are approximately twenty-five uses of strong language ('f**k' and 'motherf**ker').

Drugs

There are several portrayals of cannabis joint smoking, more often than not by child soldiers. In one scene an adult rebel commander places resin, possibly heroin, on silver foil, heats it and inhales the resulting fumes.

Other issues include natural male nudity and some mild sex references.
