Rating & Content Info
Why is Assassin’s Creed rated PG-13? Assassin’s Creed is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for intense sequences of violence and action, thematic elements and brief strong language.
Violence: Much of the theme of this movie involves fighting between two groups separated by ideological differences. With the bulk of this conflict taking place in medieval periods, fights involve swords, knives, arrows, some explosions and many hand-to-hand battles. Some of the slayings are shown on screen, for example a character is stabbed in the throat and another’s neck is slit. However, considering the brutal injuries, there is very little gore shown. One character is seen lying in a pool of blood. Participants in a cult-like group are required to amputate a single finger (seen without detail). A character accused of murder is prepared to be executed by injection (the scene depicts him anxiously struggling). Characters are prepared to be burned at the stake. Women are often at the mercy of men—in one scene a man threatens a woman with his hand around her throat. A young boy is abducted. Parents should be aware that it is difficult to identify a “good guy” in this film and even those fighting for “free will” have aggressive past histories.
Sexual Content: Mild sexual references are briefly heard.
Profanity: A single sexual expletive and a single scatological term are used.
Alcohol / Drug Use: Brief alcohol use is depicted.
