Rating & Content Info
Why is The Guardian rated PG-13? The Guardian is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for intense sequences of action/peril, brief strong language and some sensuality.
The students and teachers at the Coast Guard’s school work hard and drink hard, although the lingering effects of alcohol seem to disappear when they respond to a crisis call. During a rescue attempt, a helicopter explodes killing several crewmembers, severely burning another and pulling a man underwater. Numerous dead bodies are seen. Casual sex is portrayed between two young adults. Profanities, along with a strong sexual expletive, and brief sexual comments are included.
