Still shot from the movie: The Spirit.

The Spirit

Rookie cop Denny Colt (Gabriel Macht) may be dead, but for some mysterious reason he's still alive and breathing. Reborn as The Spirit, he dons a mask and sets off to clean up the wicked streets of Central City. But his greatest enemy, The Octopus (Samuel Jackson), is not easily spooked and he's prepared to use any weapon at his disposal, including the beautiful Sand Saref (Eva Mendes), to bring the superhero down.

Why Is The Spirit Rated PG-13?

With two immortal characters battling it out from beginning to end, violence without any consequence is a continuous concern. Gunfights, stabbings (with characters seen with bloody knives and swords sticking out of their bodies), and a decapitation are just some of the examples. A huge battle has two men shot repeatedly, with one literally being blown to bits. Sexual banter is heard. The main character is known for his womanizing ways and reputation of having had sexual relations with various females. A woman is seen completely naked from the rear. Frequent moderate and mild profanities are heard, along with terms of deity. Cigarette smoking is glamorized.
