Why is Robin Hood rated PG-13? Robin Hood is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for violence including intense sequences of warfare, and some sexual content.

Violence with bows and arrows, knives, axes and swords are the primary issue with this film. Battle scenes depict men being shot down with hundreds of arrows. Close-ups show men being drenched with hot liquid, cut down with swords, and hit with knives and axes. Some of these scenes also depict blood, especially one battle on a beach where the ocean begins to take on a red hue. Two other sequences depict an impaling and a decapitation, but neither is shown. A scene with a married man in bed with another woman (he claims his wife is unable to bear a child) includes some activity, along with back and shoulder nudity. A group of men ogle women in a tavern and sexual relations are implied when we see the men and women appear together the next morning. A woman is held captive and about to be raped, but as she lifts her dress she kicks her attacker and gets away. Language is limited to one profanity and one term of Christian deity. A friar brews an alcoholic beverage that many people drink to the point of intoxication.
