Why is Kingsman: The Secret Service rated R? Kingsman: The Secret Service is rated R by the MPAA for sequences of strong violence, language and some sexual content.

Violent acts, often involving mass numbers of people, are depicted throughout the film, but are increasingly frequent toward the end. These acts include (but are not limited to) shooting, beatings, impaling, electrocution, poisoning, dismemberment and (in one scene) full body bi-section. A scene depicts a church full of parishioners who are “worshipping” by shouting derogatory and demeaning remarks toward various groups, who suddenly begin murdering one another—one particular character is especially violent and is depicted using many of the above techniques to kill others. A scene portrays massive crowds beating and killing one another at locations around the globe. Some of the violence is depicted in a humorous manner, or is intended to elicit a humorous response from the audience. Characters are bullied. A mother attempts to murder her child.

Sexual Content:
Female buttock nudity shown in a sexual context, along with a female character inviting a male to perform anal sex. There are other infrequent moments of sexual innuendo and at least two other instances of sexual dialogue.

A sexual expletive is used at least 60 times throughout this film, along with various other scatological, religious and sexual terms. Racial and homosexual slurs are heard.

Alcohol / Drug Use:
Characters frequently drink beer and hard liquor in distinguished settings where the use of alcohol is akin to wealth, culture and/or high society. Background characters are seen smoking. Other references to drugs, alcohol and tobacco are made.
