Rating & Content Info
Why is Spectre rated PG-13? Spectre is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for intense sequences of action and violence, some disturbing images, sensuality and language.
Violence: Portrayals of violence throughout include detailed hand-to-hand struggles (kicking, beating, chokeholds), weapons threats, gunshots, onscreen killings, explosions and property damage. A character suffering from radiation poisoning commits suicide (the gunshot is heard but not seen). A character is tortured by having a needle drilled into his brain. A man squashes another’s skull and pushes his thumbs into the victim’s eyes (some blood is shown.) Birds pick at the face of a corpse. Aircraft and car chases end in accidents, property damage and injury. Characters fight in a helicopter while it is in the air, which results in erratic flying and endangers a crowd of people below. Characters fall from heights and some die. A plane is destroyed after it careens down a ski slope. Ghoulish costumes and puppets are seen during a street parade. Assassinations and murders are discussed. An angry woman smacks a man. Some blood and injuries are shown. Mentions are made of organized crime’s involvement with human trafficking, pharmaceutical products and terrorist bombings.
Sexual Content: The opening credits of the film include many obscured images of naked women; some have octopus’s tentacles wrapped around them. As well, women fondle a shirtless man’s chest. In the film, couples are shown kissing and embracing passionately, and then beginning to undress one another. A woman’s bare back is seen when a man unzips her dress. Women are shown in their underwear and posing seductively. Sexual relationships are implied. Mild sexual slang and innuendo are heard.
Language: Moderate and mild profanities, some scatological slang, and terms of deity are used.
Alcohol / Drug Use: Characters drink alcohol frequently, sometimes socially and occasionally to relieve stress. A couple of characters become inebriated. A character is threatened with a hypodermic needle containing an unknown substance. A man is injected with a hi-tech serum. A skeleton figure on a parade float has a cigar hanging out of its mouth.
