Rating & Content Info

Please read our content details for this movie to help determine if it is suitable. We also encourage you to check our full review.

Why is Fast Five rated PG-13? Fast Five is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for intense sequences of violence and action, sexual content and language.

Violence: Hero characters steal multiple vehicles (including police cars), derail a passenger train, engage in illegal street racing (in stolen police cars), and drive recklessly through city streets causing wanton damage. (Their acts are justified by their desire to defeat a seemingly even nastier drug lord.) Hand-to-hand fighting and shooting are shown (including some onscreen bullet impacts and a character shot at point-blank range). Blood effects are used. Two men are seen hanging upside down in chains. Dead bodies lying in a street are depicted.

Sexual Content: Women wear revealing clothing. The females working for a drug lord dress in bikinis. A woman’s bare buttocks, under her short skirt, is shown in a close-up. An unmarried character reveals she is pregnant. A woman dons a bikini to tempt a man to touch her buttocks and capture his handprint. A nude female breast is seen in a classic painting.

Language: A single sexual expletive, a variety of other profanities, a couple of crude terms for sexual anatomy and a rude sexual remark are heard. Terms of deity are used as expletives. A derogatory remark is made about Buddhism.

Drugs/Alcohol: A drug dealer and his fortune are core to the theme of the movie, but drugs are not seen or used. A toast and social drinking are portrayed in one scene.
