Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in 3 Days To Kill...

Violence: The movie features frequent portrayals of gun, weapon and hand-to-hand violence, with little detail and some blood shown. Most of the violence happens within a flippant or comedic context. For example: a character (who represents the CIA) shoots a man bound to a chair at point blank range, an Italian man (with stereotypical crime connections) is held captive and abused, another man of Middle Eastern origin is repeatedly beaten and placed in the trunk of a car, and a character flippantly shoots an innocent bystander in the foot when he bars his admittance to a club. Other possibly bothersome depictions include a woman who is killed after her head is forced into an open elevator shaft, then severed by a passing car (impact not seen) and a similar situation when a man is poised to have his head removed by a passing subway train (the event is interrupted). A man is thrown on a subway track and hit by a train. A massive shootout, explosions and brutal fistfights occur. A character attempts to put another’s head in a meat slicer and later a hand is placed in a panini press. A character’s foot is impaled with a knife. A character beats up a group of men he finds surrounding and touching a drugged girl (it is implied the situation is about to escalate into a gang rape). A character attaches a large pair of battery “booster” cables to another character’s ears and tortures him with electricity.

Sexual Content:

A woman in a strip bar is seen topless (brief blurred breast nudity). A naked woman is seen from the rear while being tattooed. Sex is implied when a married couple embraces in bed, the scene fades to black and we see them in bed the next morning. A woman wears revealing clothing; in one scene she is shown in a very short skirt while standing over a man.


At least three sexual expletives are included (one in subtitles) in non-sexual contexts. At least a half-dozen scatological terms are used, along with some Christian expletives and other terms of deity.

Alcohol / Drug Use: A teen girl is drugged at a rave, and later is shown in a restroom surrounded by men who are touching her. A stylish female character frequently smokes a cigarette. A man accepts an injection of a mysterious drug (shown close up with blood effects). A character drinks heavily to counteract the effects of another drug he has been injected with. Social drinking is seen.

I’m confused, the movie is rated PG-13, and says nothing about nudity in once section, but then when you break it down it says there are 4 scenes with nudity.  Could someone clarify?  Thank you.

Hello SAB,,
We appreciate you asking this question. We have not seen this movie yet as it has not released. However we gather information of different government and industry ratings organizations and offer it as a guide prior to a film being reviewed by us. Somehow we managed to enter incorrect information for this movie. There is female buttock nudity but the other nudity issues were not applicable to this film.

Rear nudity is fairly common in PG-13 movies and the MPAA has chosen not to mention it specifically for this movie, however other film classification organizations are noting it. We will have a complete review and content list once this film opens in theaters.

Thank you for the clarification.

PG-13 for this movie is completely inappropriate with the stripper scene in this movie, the rating should be rated R all the way.  Seriously.  If the failed rating system is gonna say pg-13, at least make it close to what people expect.
