Why is Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker rated PG?
Official MPAA Rating: Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker is rated PG for for sequences of action violence and some peril.
This junior spy film contains more violence than most US PG-rated films. Gunplay is included throughout. In one instance a man is assassinated, and in another a man is killed for making a simple mistake. Along with hand-to-hand and foot-to-crotch combat, there are many moments of peril and a couple “made you jump” scenes. No blood is shown as a result of these situations. As well, there’s a big dangerous jellyfish we know will tangle with someone before the movie’s end. Language is limited to a couple uses of the word “heck.” No sexual content was noted.
