ESCAPE FROM THE THIRD REICH is an action comedy in which the Chinese consulate attempts to help Jews escape from Nazi-occupied Vienna.

Violence

There are frequent scenes of strong violence, including bloody shootings, martial arts violence and an implied attack by a dog. There is also a scene of sexual violence in which a man unbuttons a woman's blouse and begins fondling her breasts under her clothes, against her will.

Injury detail

Occasional moments of strong bloody injury detail include sight of a severed leg with bone protruding from the wound, and a man's hand being crushed.

Drugs

Scenes of drug misuse include a sequence in which a Nazi SS officer snorts cocaine from between a woman's bare breasts.

Sex

Strong sex includes sight of a woman straddling a man as he thrusts into her, a man being whipped with belts by two women, and a brief moment of implied fellatio. There are also infrequent strong sex references in relation to giving and receiving fellatio.

There is infrequent use of strong language ('f**k'), as well as occasional use of discriminatory language ('negroes', 'black Jew slave') and prejudiced behaviour during scenes depicting the Nazi persecution of Jewish people.
