Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) thinks he's headed for college, but instead he finds himself -- once again -- caught in the middle of the ancient feud between the Autobots and the evil Decepticons. And just like last time (as shown in the prequel movie The Transformers) the war waged by these extra-terrestrial robots threatens the whole world.
Why Is Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen Rated PG-13?
Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi action violence, language, some crude and sexual material, and brief drug material.
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen...
This action film may be based on toys, but is hardly childrens entertainment. Extended battle scenes result in huge collateral damage on public streets and communities. While we dont see any graphic human violence, cars and buildings are blasted to bits. The robots, however, are not exempt from explicit scenes as they gush fluids from various orifices when they are attacked. There are no consequences for any of the violence—messes simply disappear and one scantily dressed, female character comes through the sequences unscathed. Sexual jokes and innuendo are heard throughout the film. Women at a university are presented in a very sexualized manner and posters on dorm walls show nude women with private parts discreetly covered. Dogs are seen in sexual situations and a robot mimics canine behavior with a human. Language includes a single sexual expletive along with many near-uses or substitutions of the same word. Crude terms for sexual anatomy, scatological slang and Christian deity are used. A woman eats a drug-laced brownie, which causes her to become inebriated and behave in a sexually promiscuous manner (this situation is presented in a comedic fashion).
