The following is a brief summary of the content found in this animated action film that has been rated PG. Profanity consists of at least one minor expletive, while some colorful phrases are uttered and there's a visual/verbal joke regarding a helmet vaguely shaped like a woman's breasts.
Violence is of the largely bloodless variety, with multiple scenes of Viking-like humans battling dragons. It's the intensity and ferocity of the attack sequences that earns the PG rating, with numerous scenes and moments of potential peril that will likely be unsettling and/or suspenseful for various viewers. An off-screen dragon attack has left one character without an arm and leg. One of the main characters loses a leg (off-screen) as a result of the film's climactic action sequence.
Bad attitudes are present, as is some potentially imitative behavior, various thematic elements and tense family material. There is also one scene of drinking.
