RED ARMY is a documentary about the Russian ice hockey team, who achieved international fame during the Cold War.

Language

There is a single use of strong language ('c**ksucker'), as well as some mild bad language, including 'shit' and 'pissed'.

Archive footage of ice hockey games features some heavy contact between players, including occasional fist fights and sight of a figure scraping his skate against a bloodied patch of ice.

Newsreel footage of riots and warfare also appears, but without sight of blood or injury. There is one very brief, undetailed image of dead bodies being loaded onto a truck during an interviewee's description of the harsh conditions in Soviet Russia.

In one archive clip, bears are seen playing ice hockey for human entertainment, although the animals do not appear to be in distress.
