Why is M3GAN movie rated PG-13?

As previously mentioned, the MPAA gave M3GAN a rating of PG-13. Even though the movie features two young leads, there’s still some content that you should be aware of when taking younger viewers. Since this movie doesn’t have an R rating attached to it, the coast is clear to bring along younger viewers under the age of 17. Though, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t some concerning elements in the film that should be brought to your attention.

In M3GAN, there are repeated scenes of physical assault, peril, intense physical threat, weapons violence, car accidents, and death. There are a few uses of profanity and crude language, including a sexual expletive and mentions of curses. Since killings are tied to the synopsis, there’s a high possibility that there will be gore involved in the feature so brace yourself for that. It’s definitely a movie you have to see the trailer for to get a sense for what to expect when you see it in-theaters.
