Why Is Thor: The Dark World Rated PG-13?


Violence: Frequent battle scenes involve swords, stabbings, flame-throwing guns and huge explosions—all of which result in numerous dead bodies lying on the battlefield. Characters are also kicked, punched and slapped. Cars are tossed around and people are thrown against objects. Some scenes depict minor amounts of blood. A dead body is placed on a pyre that is started on fire. Characters disappear into a type of black hole. A man is seen with a partially charred face after a battle. Dismemberment occurs during a battle. A grenade-like weapon is deployed on several occasions.

Sexual Content: A bare-chested man is seen. Characters kiss. A naked man runs around a public tourist attraction (his male anatomy is carefully pixilated). He is later seen wearing a shirt and his underwear.

Language: The script contains a few mild profanities, some terms of Deity and a couple of scatological slang terms.

Alcohol / Drug Use:Characters drink to celebrate a victory. A woman invites a man to have a drink with her.
