Why Is The Thief Lord Rated PG?

Orphaned children engage in lying, stealing, kidnapping, and petty crime in the name of providing for their needs. They also have dealings with other criminals, including one who offers to pay them a large sum of money for their thieving services. Threats, gunshots, and hand-to-hand conflicts are depicted. No real consequences are depicted for these behaviors, and magic is shown to be the answer to some of their problems. Characters consume alcohol, including a minor. Adults are portrayed as incompetent when compared to the children in the movie.
