Why is X-Men 3: The Last Stand rated PG-13?
Official MPAA Rating: X-Men 3: The Last Stand is rated PG-13 for for intense sequences of action violence, some sexual content and language.
Punch, stab, slice, crush, throw, incinerate, freeze… you name the weapons, and someone will fall victim to it during this film. While never bloody or gory, expect to see copious amounts of confrontations involving a variety of mutant forces, along with a military armed with projectile syringes filled with anti-mutant drugs. Sexually, those familiar with previous X-Men movies will find Mystique returning in her body paint costume, a naked woman shown with arms and legs covering key body areas, and an aggressive woman seducing a man (who is happy to comply) while they are both fully clothed. Language is relatively tame, with the exception of one use of a rude term for male anatomy and a few minor profanities.
