Why is Ultraviolet rated PG-13?
Official MPAA Rating: Ultraviolet is rated PG-13 for for sequences of violent action throughout, partial nudity and language.
Playing out like a violent video game, this film features a female heroine who has ultra abilities that enable her to walk around with an arsenal of weapons concealed in her body. Many scenes show her using these tools against masses of male attackers, resulting in deaths caused by knives, swords, guns etc. Little blood is seen in these interactions, although one shot shows a pool of blood forming around some bodies, and another shows a mechanized device removing blood from Violet’s arms. Other issues included a nude view of Violet from the rear, her penchant for wearing navel-revealing outfits into battle, her use of a vehicle to repeatedly run over a group of attackers, and a young boy who appears to be thinking about jumping from a tall building. As well, the script contains a handful of mild and moderate profanities.
