Some racial/ethnic stereotyping seems to be at play -- the mostly light-skinned Yagahl tribe members are noble victims, while the darker-skinned warlords are brutal and the darkest-skinned Naku (and similar tribes) are eager to be led into combat and salvation.
Positive Role Models & Representations
Hunting scenes show tribesmen chasing, spearing, and throwing nets on mammoths. Humans also do battle with giant birds and show fear before a saber-toothed tiger. Fights among men include hitting, kicking, and weapons (mallets, spears, arrows, knives), sometimes resulting in bloody cuts and bruises. Loud, fast chase scenes; combat scenes involving massive armies. Brutal violence against slaves (they're dragged, shackled, tied up, whipped, bloodied, and thrown off of tall pyramids (body with broken back is visible). So-called "warlords" attack a village, killing innocents, burning huts, and taking prisoners. A young boy sees his mother killed (a knife through her back), and he cries. A boy is slapped hard and stepped on by a slavemaster. Key characters are mortally wounded, leaving their comrades very sad and sometimes vengeful.
Repeated flirtations between D'Leh and Evolet (as children and as adults); a warlord shows special interest in Evolet, finally approaching her with intent to "have" her. Evolet shows cleavage in some costumes.
