Why is Jumper rated PG-13? Jumper is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sequences of intense action violence, some language and brief sexuality.

Once he discovers his ability to transport himself almost anywhere in the world, David makes an initial stop at a bank where he clears out the vault. He also steals merchandise from stores. A boy falls through the ice and is pulled downstream by the river. The Paladins use electrically charged weapons with harpoon-like wires to capture the jumpers who are then stabbed to death in a graphic depiction. Other characters are punched, kicked and caught in the middle of a war zone. The jumpers transport vehicles, buildings and weapons during their war with the Paladins and fall from tall buildings. A man is shown urinating on a national monument. Unmarried couples engage in sexual activity. (Underwear and morning after scenes are shown.) Vulgarities, profanities and terms of Deity are used and ample scenes of drinking are shown.
