Why is Angels & Demons rated PG-13? Angels & Demons is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sequences of violence, disturbing images and thematic material.

Combining a smattering of profanities and terms of Deity with a few scenes of cigarette use and a brief discussion about the castration or "unmanning" of several statues, this film focuses heavily on depictions of violent deaths and mutilations. While dressing a bullet injury, a man injects an unknown substance into his chest. The results of drug misuse are seen in a decomposing corpse. A female scientist finds blood splattered around a lab and an eyeball from a dead colleague on the floor. Men are branded with hot irons. A character shows disregard for sacred items. Rats are seen chewing on the face of a dead man. After arguing about differing religious beliefs, a riot breaks out between parishioners waiting for the announcement of the new Pope. Blood pours on the ground from a man who has had his lungs punctured. Another man is sprayed with his blood while attempting to revive him. At least two characters are shown engulfed in flames. A man dies in a car explosion. A man is hit in the head with a fire extinguisher. Police officers have their necks slit or are shot. Two men are caught in an airtight chamber and suffer the effects of oxygen deprivation. A man is strapped to a heavy object and thrown into a water fountain. Characters are shown with blood oozing from their nose and mouth. A helicopter explodes high above the city. People are pushed to the ground or hit with flying objects as a result of the explosion. Cars are shown racing through busy city streets. Scientists create a canister of anti-matter that is later used as a bomb.
