Why Is 3:10 to Yuma Rated R?

Parents considering this film for teens should be aware it contains ongoing gun violence in an old west setting. Countless people are shot, including background, secondary, and principal characters, as well as those depicted as innocent bystanders. Explicit bloody wounds are depicted, including surgery on a conscious man. A man is electrocuted by his captors. Consequences are meted out for most characters involved in illegal behavior, but this is often through vigilante or vengeful actions. Language includes frequent moderate profanities (mostly scatological terms), two uses of a sexual expletive, and some terms of deity. Sexual content is primarily limited to a man who sketches a nude woman (shown momentarily from behind in soft-focus). Derogatory remarks toward Chinese and African-Americans are briefly heard. People drink hard liquor.
