Rating & Content Info
Why is Gran Torino rated R? Gran Torino is rated R by the MPAA for language throughout, and some violence.
The film’s script contains a continuous stream of strong sexual expletives (some used in a sexual context) and derogatory racial slurs along with profanities, scatological slang, crude sexual language and terms of Christian Deity. Various gangs threaten individuals. A young man is burned on the face with a cigarette. A female character is raped and beaten (though the crime takes place off screen, her bruised and bloody body is seen). Other characters are pummeled, shot at and threatened (some blood is depicted). One man is shot repeatedly in the chest. A page from a pornographic magazine is briefly shown (no nudity and limited details are seen). Some scenes of crude sexual innuendo are portrayed along with frequent depictions of drinking, smoking and other tobacco use (including a teen smoking). The horrors of war are also briefly discussed.
