Why is Thor rated PG-13? Thor is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence.

Violence: Battle sequences and fights occur throughout this film with characters being tossed and thrown. More intense depictions include an impaling, a stabbing and a character whose eye is badly damaged. Some blood and injuries are seen, but they are not overly explicit. A character is shot with a Taser and becomes unconscious. A fantastical fire blazing character razes a town and causes a great deal of damage.

Sexual Content: A man is seen topless and a woman displays unspoken admiration for his physique. A man and woman kiss.

Language: Terms of deity and a few mild profanities are used.

Alcohol/Drug Use: Two characters, including the protagonist, drink heavily in a comedic scene.
