One of the major themes is the idea of embracing love, spirituality, and faith.
Frequent bloody battle scenes; allusions to rape and torture; lead characters die. Battles with swords, arrows, flaming arrows, catapults. Constant medieval violence. In a flashback scene, a boy watches in horror as his mother is attacked and killed by warriors before his home is burned to the ground. A woman is shown on the verge of being raped by a Saxon; it's stopped by their leader, who then has her killed.
Allusions to sexual prowess from one of the knights. Implied sex in one scene, no nudity.
Occasional mild profanity: "piss," "bastards," "ass," "arse." Joke made about the size of a man's penis. During a feast scene in which the knights are drunk, one of the knights is overheard saying, "She gave me fleas," to which another knight says, "Be glad that's all she gave you." A female soldier tells one of the knights, just before a battle with the Saxons, "Don't worry. I won't let them rape you." Mockery of prayer and of Christianity by nonbelievers in some scenes that could be offensive to religious viewers.
Some of the knights are shown drunk at a feast, shouting and behaving boisterously.
