Why is Captain America: Civil War rated PG-13? Captain America: Civil War is rated PG-13 by the MPAA PG-13 for extended sequences of violence, action and mayhem.

Violence: Violence is pervasive in this film which depicts characters fighting with hands/fists, weapons (such as guns, knives, arrows, claws and a boomerang-like shield), and super-human powers. Characters are shot, beaten, crushed, electrocuted, dismembered, fall from heights and blown up in explosions. Blood, bruises and grotesque injuries are shown. Several characters are shot in the head and the bullet holes are shown. Deaths are implied and portrayed. Many corpses are seen, including one when a bloodied body is discovered in a bathtub. Property damage and destruction are abundant. Multiple car chases occur and many accidents result. Airplanes and helicopters are also destroyed. The deaths of innocent bystanders are discussed. An assassin beats and strangles his targets. Super heroes battle each other, using their unique skills – some permanent injuries and broken friendships result. Characters are tortured, one with the treat of drowning – and death is implied. Characters experience pain (moaning and screaming are heard) when they are given experimental drugs, hooked up to equipment or put in frozen hibernation. Hypnosis is used to control characters’ minds. Characters who have lost loved ones try to cope with their grief—some desire revenge. Characters are imprisoned in holding pens and glass cells. Jailbreaks are attempted.

Sexual Content: A couple kisses. A man and woman quickly move away from one another when a teen boy walks into the room: the man later makes remarks to the boy about how attractive the woman is.

Language: The script includes infrequent moderate profanities, frequent mild curses, some terms of deity used as expletives and rude slang.

Alcohol / Drug Use: Experimental medicine is administered to people in a lab.
