Why Is Hellboy 2 The Golden Army Rated PG-13?
The film begins with scenes of animated battles that include impaling and killing. Later a Manhattan museum is swarmed by spiders that attack and eat the patrons and FBI agents before defecating all over the room. During confrontations, characters engage in hand-to-hand combat, sword fighting and martial arts. Men are beheaded, impaled and repeatedly beaten. An old woman is hit across a room and a creature is crushed between two spiked rollers. One character dies from a self-inflicted stabbing. Car crashes, explosions and property damage are also shown. A couple throws objects during a domestic fight. Pregnancy is discussed and brief kissing is portrayed. Two main characters are drunk and another smokes infrequently. Profanities, vulgarities and two uses of a term meant to sound like a sexual expletive are used in the script.
