Why Is Babylon A.D. Rated PG-13?

Scenes of murders, bombs, exploding missiles and hand-to-hand combat are nearly constant in this futuristic story of a decaying society. Characters are threatened, shot at close range, beaten and fired upon by military airplanes. Bloody injuries and death are the result of the attacks. Dead animals, humans with missing limbs, car crashes and barbaric living conditions are also depicted. A man is choked to death, and refugees (including babies and young children) are shot at or drowned while attempting to board a rescue ship. Scientific experimentation results in cloning, viral infections and artificially intelligent super humans. Religious fanatics use violence to promote their beliefs. In a sensual scene, characters are shown wearing only a towel and underwear. A brief sexual comment is made. Short portrayals of alcohol and cigarette use are shown. Profanities, including a strong sexual expletive, and other vulgarities are used throughout the script.
