Why Is Tron Rated PG?
Tron is rated PG
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Tron...
Violence: Characters are forced to engage in gladiator-like battles where the losing opponent dies (implied by a bright flash of light before the body disappears). Characters are interrogated and tortured with painful shocks (causing their skeleton to shine through their skin). Frisbee-like weapons and electric-prod spears are used. Hand-to-hand combat occurs. Movie includes depictions of illegal activities, such as computer hacking, blackmail, breaking and entering, as well as intellectual property and data theft. Video-game-like violence features car races, tank chases, crashes and explosions. A powerful lazar beam digitizes a man and sends his physical matter inside a computer.
Sexual Content: Embracing and kissing. Verbal comments imply unmarried couples having sexual relationships. A man’s bare chest is shown.
Language: Infrequent use of mild profanity.
Alcohol / Drug Use: None noted.
Other: Ethical behavior is derogatorily called "religion." Personified programs revere programmers/users as their creators.
