Why is xXx: The Return of Xander Cage rated PG-13? xXx: The Return of Xander Cage is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for extended sequences of gunplay and violent action, and for sexual material and language.

Violence:
Frequent portrayals of non-graphic violence, including gun battles, knife threats, martial arts combat, fistfights, bone breaking body holds and explosions. Infrequently these depictions include bloody wounds. Many injuries and deaths are implied, and a few corpses are seen. Point blank shootings are shown on screen. Characters are in peril, often by choice. Characters engage in reckless driving (cars, motorcycles and boats), as well as extreme sports and stunting on skis and skateboards. Spectacular car crashes and chases are shown. Characters run through traffic and begin fighting as vehicles swerve to avoid them. Crime and rebellion are glamorized. A sniper disarms safari hunters, injuring one and leaving them to be preyed on by a lion. People fall and are thrown from heights. Terrorist activities kill and injure the public. Planes and satellites fall to the earth in a blaze of explosions and falling debris. Hits to the groin are shown. Characters are threatened and killed with grenades.

Sexual Content:
Frequent depictions of women in bikinis or other skimpy clothing. Sexual banter, references and innuendo are heard. A brief portrayal of sexual activity (with passionate kissing, fondling, sexual sounds) is included. Women dance seductively. Characters embrace and kiss. An orgy is implied after a group of women body search a man. A woman confesses to appearing nude in public.

Profanity:
Three sexual finger gestures are seen and one use of a sexual expletive is heard. Frequent use of scatological slang, mild and moderate profanity and terms of deity. Crude anatomical terms and racial slurs are also included.

Alcohol / Drug Use:
Characters drink alcohol in clubs, bars and private meetings. Illegal drug use is mentioned. Tobacco use.
