THE OUTPOST is a US war film in which a troop of soldiers defend a remote frontier position in the mountains of Afghanistan.

Violence

There are multiple battle scenes featuring gunfire and explosions with sight of impact and injury.

Language

There is frequent strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker', 'c**ksucker'), as well as milder terms including 'bitch' and 'pussy'. Racist language includes the terms 'n****r' and 'Hajji'.

Injury detail

There are close up shots of gunshot wounds as well as broken bones. A scene set in a field-hospital includes frequent sight of bloody wounds.

Discrimination

Soldiers tease each other using the implication of homosexuality as an insult and refer to their military foes using various forms of slang, including 'Hajji'. In one scene an Army officer in reference to the local people says to a soldier of American indigenous origin "...they're a tribe, you're a tribe". Two soldiers argue when one of them uses the term 'n****r'.

In one scene a soldier displays scars from self-inflicted injuries and talks of having attempted to take his own life; in another sequence a traumatised soldier sits with his rifle trained on himself. There are passing verbal references to drugs, including a scene in which a soldier is reprimanded for smoking cannabis. There are also crude sex references and a scene in which a man is caught masturbating.
