Why is X-Men: Apocalypse rated PG-13? X-Men: Apocalypse is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sequences of violence, action and destruction, brief strong language and some suggestive images.

This action movie features pervasive depictions of violence, including hand-to-hand confrontations and beatings, shootings and weapons use, stabbings and impaling, decapitations and burning. Many deaths are shown and implied. Injuries are portrayed in graphic detail, with blood and gory wounds, bones and vital organs protruding from the body, flesh melting away and skeletal remains being exposed. Property damage is prolific, many explosions occur and people are crushed or blown up. Characters are killed accidentally and with malicious intent. Fantastical creatures and transformations are shown. Discrimination and mistrust lead to bullying, abuse and persecution. Gladiator style contests are held. Flashbacks to the holocaust are shown and the atrocities of humanity are alluded to. Characters are in constant peril. 

Sexual Content:
Characters embrace and kiss. Women are seen in scanty costumes. Some mild sexual innuendo is heard. Children born out of wedlock are mentioned.

The sexual expletive is used once in a non-sexual context. Other profanity, terms of deity, name-calling and slurs are heard infrequently.

Alcohol / Drug Use:
Smoking is briefly seen. A depressed and injured character drinks from a bottle. Medical equipment is shown and experimentation on living beings is implied.
