Why Is I Am Number Four Rated PG-13?

Their fights involve hand-to-hand combat, explosives, guns, knives and a small gadget with rotating blades that mutilates a person’s internal organs when ingested. Other characters are chased, choked and burned. Some are also attacked, shot, thrown against the wall and briefly kidnapped. Students are bullied at school. Buildings are burned or blown up. Grisly scenes of bloody victims and decapitated heads are depicted in a carnival’s haunted house. A man bleeds profusely after being stabbed. Other depictions of blood and injuries involving people and animals are briefly shown.

Sexual Content: An obsessive boyfriend tries to win a girl back. Kissing and embracing is shown between teens. Brief, mild sexual innuendo is also included.

Language: The script contains nearly two-dozen profanities, scatological slang and terms of Deity.
