Why Is United 93 Rated R?

In an opening scene of the film, one naked hijacker is shown shaving his chest (no direct nudity is seen). He then tucks a knife into his belt before heading to the airport. Voices are raised once the air traffic controllers suspect one or more planes have been hijacked.

A man constructs a bomb and straps it to his chest. A flight attendant is attacked and a knife is held to her throat. Several men are brutally stabbed and beaten. Several characters are shown covered in blood. A group of passengers attack the hijackers using kitchen utensils and other objects on the plane. A man sprays a fire extinguisher into the faces of other passengers. The pilot wildly rocks the plane. Numerous profanities, including at least six uses of an extreme expletive, are used in the script along with repeated terms of Deity.
