Rating & Content Info
Why is Lara Croft: Tomb Raider rated PG-13? Lara Croft: Tomb Raider is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for action violence and some sensuality
This slick production boasts gorgeous sets and real world locations providing a feast for the eyes along with an interesting story premise. Unfortunately its heroine, like the videogame character upon which she’s based, is always packing pistols and a litany of other weapons which are used repeatedly throughout the movie without regard for consequences.
Menacing robotic monster attacks woman on several occasions, woman pulls out guns and shoots at it. Robot crushed under stone pillar. Robot with saws and other cutting instruments attempts to attack woman’s neck. Woman has nightmare, suddenly awakens and pulls out a knife. Woman knocks out a wall. Depictions of dangerous driving on a motorcycle. Men break into home to attack woman, beginning an extended sequence where many shots are fired, people fall to floor, others crushed against stone walls, and woman engages in hand-to-hand combat with many of these men. Woman uses power tool to shoot man. Man sets off bomb in house. Woman driving motorcycle shoots a man. Woman uses gun to hit man. Woman drives motorcycle into man. Man steals object. Woman falls into pit. Men shoot at woman. Statues come to life, men and woman shoot at them causing them to crumble. Woman chased by large statue-like beast.

Lizard-like creature chases woman. Man crushed by machine. Two men knocked into water. Man knifed in throat. Woman accidentally cuts herself on knife blade—blood seen. Man shot in head—no blood. Woman and man hold guns to each other. Woman and man fight brutal hand-to-hand battle, the man is killed. Guns presented on a silver platter.
Sexual Content: C-
Glimpses of woman in shower, back and shoulders exposed with fuller body shots obscured through glass and curtains.
