Why is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows rated PG-13? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sci-fi action violence.

Violence: Frequent conflicts throughout include depictions of fighting, beating, shooting, stabbing, explosion and dismemberment. These confrontations often include hand-to-hand conflict and weapons use, however there is no blood or other explicit effects. Likewise, there is little consequence for the destructive behavior. Law enforcement personnel are depicted as useless or disposable—one scene shows a prison transfer motorcade being interrupted by explosions that send many of the vehicles hurtling through the air while erupting into flames. An antagonist appears as an alien “head” that extends from a large robotic body and may be frightening for young audiences. Many scenes portray characters in peril. Two humans are transformed into animals that fight and cause destruction.

Sexual Content: A woman alters her clothing to reveal her legs and navel in an attempt to gain access to information from a man. Two human characters, that are transformed into large animals, look into their pants and make a brief comment alluding to the size of their penises.

Language: A single scatological term and four other mild profanities are heard. Some name calling is included.

Alcohol / Drug Use: Adult characters are seen drinking in a bar and appear to be inebriated.
