In this case, "stomach" would be correct. It means that watching the movie made or would make the viewer physically ill - sick to the stomach.

Hello,

For your information, the word "stomach (verb)" simply means "to be able to watch something unpleasant" according to Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary online--http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/british/stomach_2.

Even this dictionary http://www.oxfordadvancedlearnersdictionary.com/dictionary/stomach_2 defines "stomach (verb)" clearly.

Thank you.

Best wishes,
