Why Is The Legend of Hercules Rated PG-13?

Violence: Many over-the-top sequences. Hand-to-hand combat shows soldiers killing each other. Scenes depict an underground movement fighting the establishment, with the losers dying in battle. Multiple portrayals of gladiator-type battles, including one that pits a single man against six unbeaten champions. Weapons are used to maim and kill (no blood is shown). People are crushed by stones that a character is using for weapons. Two men are branded after they are captured. A woman stabs herself to kill the person behind her. Some supernatural weapons are employed to defeat armies. A father and son battle each other.

Sexual Content: It is implied a god impregnates a woman (Zeus is not seen, but she is shown in bed writhing and moaning). Two lovers are swimming together—although both are clothed, the man is shirtless. A woman’s wet clothes cling to her body. An unmarried couple, covered by sheets, kiss as they roll around together. At one point, the woman lifts up and reveals much of her body from the side.

Language: No expletives noted. Threats are made. A woman’s virtue is asked about.

Alcohol / Drug Use: Celebrations and feasts take place, but there is no mention of what is being consumed.
