CASUALTIES OF WAR is a 1989 drama, set during the Vietnam War, in which a young American soldier finds his loyalties torn over his comrades' brutal treatment of a Vietnamese woman. This is an extended version of the film.

Violence

There are scenes of sexual violence in which a woman is assaulted by several men in turn. There is brief sight of thrusting, but no strong nudity or other eroticising detail in the assault. There is also strong bloody violence in a wartime context, and gory injury detail.

There is also strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker').

There are also strong sex references.
