There is a conversation how cows are abused for farming purposes, birds are kept in small cages and probably lots more since people just replaced the children with animals.

Honestly not sure - but there is a brief scene (2 seconds) in the refugee camp where two human corpses appear to be on a grill on fire. I'm not sure if they are being cooked for consumption, or if they are being burned as a disposal method, or funeral rite. But when I first saw the scene I thought of cannibalism.

The gore in this film is 'excessive' but not extreme. There is a lot of it, but it isn't that bad. However, if you're sqeamish then, maybe not. There are severed limbs, bashed in heads and blood stains.

there are no kids in the movie because it's set in a world where no one's been able to reproduce in years, so while some characters die, some of whom might be parents to adult children, there are no "parental deaths" in the movie.

In the refugee camp scene, you can briefly see in the background a man being electrocuted in a pose referencing a photo of a real life Abu Graihb war prisoner. It’s so brief that you won’t see it unless you’re looking for it.

No, however there is segregation, racism, and violence towards refugees which may remind people of antisemitism and nazi-eri practices and visuals. Especially in the later half of the film, the beckhill refugee camp is sort of ghetto and concentration camp reminiscent, at least to me.

characters often use the word "fugees" to refer to "illegal" immigrants. mass migration is a major part of the story, as it's set in a world where humans can't reproduce anymore, sending many societies around the world into collapse. immigrants from around the world are looked down upon and mistreated by many characters in the movie, including having their homes raided (off-screen, but we see the aftermath), being caged and detained, and being thrown into prison camps and refugee ghettos.
