Why is Vantage Point rated PG-13? Vantage Point is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sequences of intense violence and action, some disturbing images and brief strong language.

Action and violence pervades nearly every minute of this film about an assassination attempt on a fictional US President while visiting Spain. Over a dozen explicit shootings are seen (blood is shown), and the assassination is repeated many times—as seen from the vantage point of various characters. The depiction of two bomb blasts (one is a suicide bomb) includes portrayals of death or injury (blood is again shown), and some people are seen with their clothing on fire. An extended car chase results in a few intense crashes and pedestrians being hit by vehicles. Language includes moderate (usually scatological) and mild profanities, as well as one use of a sexual expletive. Sexual content is limited to a short discussion of an implied relationship between a man and a woman.
