Why is The Fate of the Furious rated PG-13? The Fate of the Furious is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for prolonged sequences of violence and destruction, suggestive content, and language.

Violence: Illegal car racing, dangerous driving, and impossible stunts are frequently depicted and glamorized. Theses result in spectacular crashes, car-rolls, head-on collisions and property damage. Also included are depictions of cars driving through crowds of pedestrians (no people appear to be hit in these scenes), the hacking of autonomous–driving software in vehicles that are then used to create havoc on the streets, cause accidents and even fall out of multi-storied parking lots. Characters frequently engage in hand-to-hand combat and weapons use: characters are beaten, shot and killed with accompanying sound effects. Although little blood is shown, there is one scene where a character is pushed into a turbine and blood is shown splattered on the wall. Other characters are presumably killed and injured. A character is shot on screen and another, who is bound, is shot off screen. Characters engage in gambling, extortion, robbery, kidnapping, jail breaks, evading authorities and threats of death/bodily harm. Criminal behavior is justified because it is done for a “greater good”. Main characters are in perilous situations throughout.

Sexual Content: Numerous woman in scanty attire attend a car race. Men are seen shirtless. A couple kiss passionately and are later shown in bed together. Other couples kiss. Characters discuss an unplanned pregnancy. Some sexual references and innuendo are heard. Men flirt with a woman.

Profanity: Asexual expletive in used within a non-sexual context. The script includes frequent scatological slang, mild and moderate cursing, and terms of deity. Vulgar expressions, crude slang and slurs are also heard.

Alcohol / Drug Use: Characters drink at a social gathering.
