Why Is Lockout Rated PG-13?

Violence: Pervasive violence throughout that at times becomes explicit. Countless characters are killed by shootings, stabbings, explosions and various other means. Characters are tortured with burns. Female characters are hit and attacked by men, one is killed at point blank range, as are other male characters. A cadaver is seen in a lab environment with the top of its skull removed. A man’s head is blown off after an explosive charge is placed around his neck—we see his body minus his head from the rear. A man commits suicide and shoots himself in the head. A man is ejected from the ship into space.

Sexual Content: Sexual remarks and innuendo are heard. A man, with what appears to be sexual motivation, begins attacking a woman but is interrupted.

Language: Obscenities heard throughout, include a single sexual expletive, various scatological terms, names of Christian deity, other moderate and mild profanities, and a crude anatomical term.

Drug/Alcohol Use: A hero character smokes throughout the film. Mention is made that hardly anyone still smokes in this futuristic society.
