Rating & Content Info
Why is Ender’s Game rated PG-13? Ender’s Game is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for some violence, sci-fi action and thematic material.
Violence: Young characters often engage in verbal conflicts, some of which escalate to fights. The protagonist is the target of bullying by classmates and an older brother. A bully, along with other cohorts, provokes another boy and challenges him to a fight; the boy accepts and, after hitting the bully with an object and knocking him to the floor, continues to kick and hit him. Later an adult mentor rewards him for this behavior. A male sibling pushes his smaller brother on to a bed and begins to strangle him with his hands, but eventually lets go. After a verbal altercation two boys begin fighting in a shower room; one boy hits his head on the floor causing severe trauma; we later see him receiving medical help. Children are often placed in harms way and are subjected to verbal military discipline in a society where adults are relying on children to fight battles against an alien enemy.
Sexual Content: None noted.
Language: A crude male anatomical term is heard.
Alcohol / Drug Use: None noted.
