Why is Jonah Hex rated PG-13?
Official MPAA Rating: Jonah Hex is rated PG-13 for for intense sequences of violence and action, disturbing images and sexual content.
Violence: Many scenes in this movie portray people being shot with guns and other weapons. Some of these killings feature blood effects. Three scenes depict huge explosions that obliterate a train and buildings containing men, women and children (no gory details are seen). Corpses are briefly brought back to life, but then begin to smolder and burn. Dead men are dragged on the ground behind a horse. A bloody sack is seen that supposedly contains a human head. A man’s face is branded with an iron and later he holds a red-hot axe to his face to remove the scar (we don’t see details in either event).
