Why Is Journey to the Center of the Earth Rated PG?

Devoid of any inappropriate language, this film contains two brief kisses between consenting adults. The only other concerns for parents will be some scary, jump scenes and moments of intense, perilous action as the characters encounter dinosaurs, flesh-eating plants, and prehistoric fish. As well, they experience a wild, rollercoaster ride in an old mine shaft, fall through a thin layer of earth and are carried off by a kite. The explorers are also exposed to an explosion, boiling water, hot lava and a careening slide down the side of a mountain.
