Why is The Losers rated PG-13? The Losers is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sequences of intense action and violence, a scene of sensuality and language.

Frequent scenes of automatic gunfire, explosions and blood injuries are seen. Characters are shot or have guns pointed at them. Characters fight with knives. Air missiles strike both a housing compound and a helicopter carrying children. A man and woman engage in a brutal hand-to-hand fight, throwing furniture and bottles, along with punching and kicking. A man is thrown over the side of a tall building (the sound of his body hitting the ground is heard). A man’s eye is poked out during a fight. Another man is sucked into a jet engine causing the plane to explode. An injured character licks the blood from his wound. Characters are mocked for their moral beliefs. Men bet on a chicken fight. Characters drink on numerous occasions. One man inhales a substance through a water pipe and appears to be high. Portrayals of sexual activity include extended scenes of passionate kissing and embracing. A woman removes her bra (exposing her bare back) and a couple is shown lying together after sex. A puppet show includes the depiction of animal copulation. Girls are seen in bikinis and other skimpy clothing. A man appears to nuzzle a shirtless doll. Sexual innuendo and comments are also included. Frequent scatological slang, profanities, some terms of Deity and a strong sexual expletive are used in the script.
