Characters are thrown around inside a car as the water sweeps the vehicle away and others are chased by a wall of water down long corridors. These scenes of threat are intense and extended.</p><p>There are also scenes showing the aftermath of the natural disaster with bodies left lying around in ruined buildings and cars. One man finds a bus full of dead bodies still strapped in their seats, including a young child.</p></dd></dl><p>Other issues include a single use of strong language ('f**k').
