Former cop Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) and ex-con Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) have just about run out of places to hide. With a ruthless federal agent (Dwayne Johnson) bearing down on them in Rio de Janeiro, the pair hopes to find freedom by assembling an elite team of racers for one more fast-paced, crash-filled heist. (This movie is part of The Fast and The Furious franchise.)
Why Is Fast Five Rated PG-13?
Fast Five is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, sexual content and language.
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Fast Five...
Violence: Hero characters steal multiple vehicles (including police cars), derail a passenger train, engage in illegal street racing (in stolen police cars), and drive recklessly through city streets causing wanton damage. (Their acts are justified by their desire to defeat a seemingly even nastier drug lord.) Hand-to-hand fighting and shooting are shown (including some onscreen bullet impacts and a character shot at point-blank range). Blood effects are used. Two men are seen hanging upside down in chains. Dead bodies lying in a street are depicted.
Sexual Content: Women wear revealing clothing. The females working for a drug lord dress in bikinis. A woman’s bare buttocks, under her short skirt, is shown in a close-up. An unmarried character reveals she is pregnant. A woman dons a bikini to tempt a man to touch her buttocks and capture his handprint. A nude female breast is seen in a classic painting.
Language: A single sexual expletive, a variety of other profanities, a couple of crude terms for sexual anatomy and a rude sexual remark are heard. Terms of deity are used as expletives. A derogatory remark is made about Buddhism.
Drugs/Alcohol: A drug dealer and his fortune are core to the theme of the movie, but drugs are not seen or used. A toast and social drinking are portrayed in one scene.
