Why Is Source Code Rated PG-13?

Violence: A bomb explodes on a busy commuter train—this scenario is repeated many times with the train exploding and careening off the track onto a busy street. A man punches, harasses and threatens passengers on a train; he also breaks into a locked compartment and steals a conductor’s pistol. A character falls from a train and sustains bloody injuries. Two characters are shot and shown on the ground surrounded by blood. A terrorist discusses plans to detonate a large bomb. A disembodied human torso and head with part of the brain exposed is seen in a medical environment.

Sexual Content: Two brief sexual remarks are heard. A man and woman kiss.

Language: A single sexual expletive is used, along with infrequent scatological and mild profanities.

Drugs/Alcohol: None noted.
