Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World features prolonged and intense battle violence and graphic scenes of surgery; bloody wounds of both adults and children are visible, too. Crew members are shown being shot, whipped, and committing suicide, too. Drinking is frequent (even among young officers) and adults smoke cigars and pipes. Occasional words like "hell" and "Goddamn" are audible, as are a few sexist remarks. All of this is offered in context, and is balanced with strong messages about loyalty, friendship, and duty to one's country.

Sexual Content

The crew occasionally talks about women waiting for them at home; native women flirt with sailors at ports.

Violence

Contains lots of battle scenes with cannon and pistol fire and sword fights; crew members (including children) are injured, shot, drowned, and killed (bloody wounds visible). Scenes of surgeries and amputations are graphic; vomiting and fainting is occasionally visible. A crewman is whipped for insubordination; an insecure officer is bullied and commits suicide

Language

Characters say "hell" and "Goddamn" occasionally.

Social Behavior

Loyalty, friendship, and honor are all strong themes. The H.M.S. Surprise is referred to as a "she," and occasional sexist comments are made about handling her.
