No. Near the end of the credits (@2:14:23) it says "AMERICAN HUMANE ASSOCIATION monitored the animal action. No animal was harmed in the making of this film. AHA 00320."

Animals are used in scientific research but they are in no way harmed and do not die.

Yes; someone gives up his suit's oxygen to save the situation, and soon faints. But we actually don't see him gasping for air much.

No. A boy - aged maybe 11? - becomes afraid in a scary and confusing situation (that starts with a pigeon lying dead on the ground), but he's not harmed.

YES! Ignore the no's! A middle-aged man who has two children (aged maybe 8 and 10? I didn't look closely) dies. We only ever see them in a photo, and we know nothing about them except that they're his children, what they look like, and that they love their dad (we see a drawing they made for him, along with the word "PAPA" written in childlike letters). Their love for him, and the fact that he seems to be a decent person who loves them and will do anything for them obviously make his death all the more tragic. --- Bonus info: There are no old people in the movie.

Only in the sense that they purposely do things that hurt them terribly because they absolutely have to in order for themselves, their team mates and all of humanity to survive.

There are no mentally ill people in the movie, except perhaps for a touch of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (the person is unscrupulously self-serving and blatantly self-important/arrogant to the point of it being comical, but actually comes around and redeems himself somewhat towards the end).

A character willingly goes on a mission they know will end in their death. Death is not the goal but it is guaranteed.

There are lots of scenes in which we see the fast-whirling, rather bright masses (of various colours) that the ship is moving through. Also lasers and blasts of fire. No strobes.

Not really, but it's highly likely that the movie will be triggering anyway, for two reasons. 1) A plane returning to Earth after a space mission makes a desperate, rough emergency landing in the beginning of the movie; until the very end of the scene, it looks like the astronauts won't make it. 2) The huge "ship" travelling to the Earth's core is in extremely critical situations several times, with characters behaving/reacting/feeling the same way that most people would if the plane they were on was about to crash.

Yes, but it not very bad. What I considered the worst of it happens just before all the main characters are back in the ship after a crisis with huge crystals has been solved - a man is hit in the back of the head by a rock travelling at high velocity, and a bit of it pokes out through his forehead. Not an explosive effect, just a fairly small amount of blood running down his overall intact face from the rock that's sitting wedged in the bone. We don't see anything beneath the skin of anyone's body, nor any internal bodily material except blood.

Hmm, well, we don't actually see anyone drown, but there's a huge bridge collapse that sends countless cars plummeting into the river. I'm guessing that in an event like that, some of the people inside the cars would die on impact, while others would drown.
