Why is Tron: Legacy rated PG? Tron: Legacy is rated PG by the MPAA for sequences of sci-fi action violence and brief mild language.

Violence: Main characters are in frequent perilous situations, occasionally engage in reckless and illegal behavior, and are often forced to participate in gladiator-like competitions. The movie contains almost continuous depictions of hand-to-hand battles (with and without weapons), racing high-tech vehicles and firing at various opponents which result in implied deaths, injuries (one drop of blood is shown), crashes, destructive explosion and characters disintegrating into digital rubble. Genocide is discussed. A character loses a limb during a fight (no blood is seen).

Sexual Content: Characters wear tight, form-fitting costumes. Female outfits also reveal shoulders. A man is undressed and briefly seen in his underwear. A man sensually touches a woman’s face. A man and woman embrace. Background characters at a nightclub cuddle together.

Language: Infrequent mild profanities are used.

Drugs and Alcohol: Characters drink alcoholic beverages in private homes and in a bar-like setting.
