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.

There are lots of animals alive and dead all over the place in this film. Nothing for the sensible types.

In the opening bomb scene, a woman is holding a dog who we can assume is her pet. She and the dog die in the blast.

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.

a woman going into labour expresses that she is finding breathing difficult, but there is nothing restraining her breathing other than the contractions/pain she is in

A bus the protagonists are on drive past various scenes of torture playing out inside a refugee camp. It is only shown in the background, and very little violence is explicitly seen, only implied.

In the opening scene a woman is briefly shown walking out of an explosion holding her own severed arm. Later in the film, a man is shown with the lower half of his body destroyed.

At the start of the film, there's news about the death of 'Baby DIego', who was 18, and a celebrity for being the youngest human alive at the time. Kee's child does survive.

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.

YES! the tone of scenes can turn incredibly quickly from calm to chaotic, and loud explosions or bursts of violence can occur out of nowhere.

The character Jasper has a running gag where he makes people pull his finger and then farts. Mostly played for laughs.

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.

there is a "suicide kit" in the movie that allows people to die peacefully. a character has it and in one scene it's implied they used it, but they were just taking a nap.

Some scenes may briefly take place in tight spaces, like the car ambush scene.

there is a lengthy one-shot near the end of the movie set amid an armed conflict. the camera movement is shakey and fast, moving like someone with a handycam.

There is a scene where a midwife describes an epidemic of miscarriages that happened years before the film begins, but none occur in the timeframe of the story.

Brief mention of a woman questioning whether to get an abortion, blink (with your ears?) and you’ll miss it.

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.

there are no sex scenes in the movie. a character exposes her nude pregnant body to another character, but it is not sexual in nature.

a character is shot in the head at point-blank range. near the end, there is a lot of gunfire and shooting in what is basically a war zone.
