Why is The Man from U.N.C.L.E. rated PG-13? The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for action violence, some suggestive content, and partial nudity.

This movie contains pervasive sequences of violence, including hand-to-hand combat, gun use, stabbing and explosions, along with frequent on-screen shootings. Although most of it is non-graphic, some depictions feature blood effects. A lengthy scene portrays a former Gestapo inflicting torture (electric shock and threats of other physical mutilation) on a victim while showing archival-looking pictures of people tortured during the holocaust era. Car and boat chases result in injury, near drowning, and property damage. Characters are in peril, as well as threatened with weapons and death. Characters are injured or killed, sometimes in a comedic context. Archival images of exploding atom bombs are shown. Threats of nuclear war and bombs are discussed. Spies use high-tech equipment to bug and track each other. Remarks are made about illegal behavior and embezzlement. Thefts, such as mugging, safecracking and pickpocketing, are depicted. Characters steal vehicles. Prison camps and gulags are mentioned. A woman smacks a man and then wrestles with him. A man is hit in the groin. Bullying and rough handling are mentioned.

Sexual Content:
The script includes sexual innuendo and suggestive references. A man is shown from the back using a urinal. A drunken woman straddles a man. A man puts his hand under a woman’s skirt to adjust a tracking device. Sexual relations are implied with sexual sounds and morning-after scenes. A woman wearing only panties is seen from behind, and when she turns to look over her shoulder, the side of her naked breast is shown.

Mild profanities and vulgar sexual terms are used infrequently.

Alcohol / Drug Use:
Characters smoke infrequently. Drinking is frequently shown in social setting and in private. A character gets drunk and passes out. Liquor is spiked with drugs in order to subdue a character. A syringe full of an unknown drug is shown in a torture context.
