Why is Robocop (2014) rated PG-13? Robocop (2014) is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for intense sequences of action including frenetic gun violence throughout, brief strong language, sensuality and some drug material.

Violence: Robots patrol a neighborhood (depicted in Iran) and scan citizens’ eyes and bodies to confirm identification and check for hidden weapons; Men with explosives covering their bodies launch an attack on the machines and one of their young sons approaches a droid with a knife and is shot off screen. In other scenes we see robots and humans battling with many presumed deaths; some shootings are seen on screen with limited blood effects. Some characters are shot with Taser weapons, one within a comedic context. A character threatens another by wrapping his hands around his neck. A few people are seen lying in hospital beds or wheelchairs with injuries that include missing limbs. A man who has lost most of his body is depicted with just his head, and his internal organs encased in a transparent enclosure.

Sexual Content: A married couple embraces and begins removing their clothes (we see her in a bra) but they are interrupted prior to any further sexual activity. Some brief sexual innuendo is heard.

Language: One sexual expletive in a non-sexual context is used. Moderate amounts of scatological and other profanities are included.

Alcohol / Drug Use: Minor references to drugs, alcohol and tobacco.
