Why Is World Trade Center Rated PG-13?

Obviously this movie deals with an event that will trigger strong emotions within many viewers. Parents will want to carefully consider if their children are mature enough to cope with this intense dramatization, in which characters are in constant peril. Scenes of destruction and human suffering are frequent, and include people with bloody injuries, people falling from the towers, and principal characters who are killed. Moderate and mild profanities are heard. A couple of secondary characters are seen smoking. Sexual content is limited to a married couple snuggling in bed and a store window mannequin in lingerie.
