APOCALYPSE NOW: FINAL CUT is a re-edited version of the 1979 US Vietnam War drama in which a US Army Captain is sent on a secret mission to assassinate a rogue American Colonel.

Violence

Scenes of bloody violence include people being shot or blown up, including one soldier's legs being blown off by an explosion. Another soldier is impaled with a spear.

Injury detail

There is sight of gory injuries, including one man attempting to hold in his guts, and sight of severed heads.

Nudity

There is a sequence in which a naked woman walks around a bed on which a man is lying. There is also sight of soft-core 'pin up' images from porn magazines, showing breast nudity. There is also some non sexual nudity, including when corpses are seen.

Language

There is infrequent very strong language ('c**t') as well as more frequent strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker', 'c**ksucker'). There is also use of racist terms (including 'gook' and 'slope'), milder bad language including 'bitch' and 'pussy', and rude hand and finger gestures.

The film also contains a few crude verbal sex references, drug misuse and drug references, and verbal references to suicide.

There is a sequence in which a real bull is actually killed using a machete. The animal's spine is severed immediately meaning the kill is both quick and clean and the scene does not comprise a "cruel infliction of pain or terror" in a manner than contravenes the Cinematograph Films (Animals) Act 1937 or BBFC Guidelines and policy.
