Why is Gods of Egypt rated PG? Gods of Egypt is rated PG by the MPAA for fantasy violence and action, and some sexuality.

Violence:Like sand in the desert, this screenplay is full of portrayals of non-graphic violence including hand-to-hand confrontations, sword and spear fighting, stabbings, strangulation and impaling. Characters are in constant peril and many scenes contain frightening images. One character is decapitated, another’s leg is dismembered and a woman is shot in the breast with an arrow. A god has her wings cut off. Many deaths and murders are shown and implied. Some characters fall from heights to their deaths. Much property damage occurs. Characters transform into fantastical creatures with extraordinary powers and then battle other equally spectacular monsters. Large snakes breathe fire and threaten characters. Characters must pass through booby-traps and unravel mysteries that are impossible to the point of ridiculous. Body parts, like eyes, a heart and a brain are pulled out of living characters—the depiction is stylized so no gore is shown. Gods bleed gold instead of blood. Characters lie and steal for their own gain and to manipulate others. Thievery is glamorized. Living characters interact with the dead in the afterworld, some of whom look like decaying corpses. Slavery is depicted, death threats are discussed and suicide is mentioned.

Sexual Content: The script contains some sexual references and innuendo. Adultery, fornication and infidelity are implied. Couples kiss. A woman fondles a man’s bare chest. A man and woman embrace and kiss passionately, and are later shown naked in bed: All nudity is carefully shot to avoid showing any private body parts. A woman’s silhouette is seen while she is changing her clothes. All of the female characters wear revealing costumes.

Language: Mild cursing and anatomical slang are used.

Alcohol / Drug Use: Several characters are depicted as hung over and it is implied that a main character frequently drinks to excess. Alcohol is consumed at social events.
