Why Is The Dark Knight Rises Rated PG-13?


Violence: Pervasive violence includes depictions of hand-to-hand fighting, beatings, shootings, explosions, choking, neck snapping, back breaking and stabbing. These portrayals are detailed, although little blood is shown. High tech and nuclear weapons are employed, causing loss of life and property damage on a mass scale. Characters are betrayed, threatened with death and in constant peril. Criminals and murderers target innocent citizens and the police. Physical and physiological torture is applied. Multiple corpses are shown.

Sexual Content: Sexual relations between an unmarried man and woman are implied: His naked chest and her bare shoulders are shown. Passionate kisses are exchanged. Mild sexual references are made.

Language: Infrequent mild and moderate profanities are used.

Alcohol / Drug Use: Characters drink at social occasions.
