Why is 10,000 BC rated PG-13? 10,000 BC is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sequences of intense action and violence.

10,000 B.C. is best approached with an attitude of not expecting anything factual. The story of a man who treks a great distance to rescue a girl offers many moments of peril and battle. While the violence usually isn’t graphic (and sometimes is obviously digitally simulated), there are frequent scenes of people being beaten and stoned, as well as impaled with arrows, knives and spears. Some blood effects are included. Other characters are seen in one-on-one combat, with necks being broken, characters pushed off high ledges and receiving other injuries. Scenes depicting many stampeding mammoths would presumably also result in serious injury, but these details are mostly viewed in grand vistas. Sexual content is limited to men fighting over who will get “the” woman, and she is seen in a cleavage-revealing dress.Male characters are shown in chest-bearing costumes.
