THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL is a sci-fi drama in which an alien from another planet, accompanied by a giant robot, arrives on earth with orders to destroy the planet for its negligent attitude towards the environment.

Threat

There are occasional scenes of moderate threat in which a large alien robot wreaks havoc on man-made objects, destroying buildings and vehicles.

Injury detail

In one scene an alien is shot, and blood is seen to spurt onto the visor of a nearby scientist’s biohazard protection suit. In order to remove the bullet, a scalpel is used to cut into the alien's grey-coloured flesh.

There are infrequent moments of mild violence.
