Jason and the Argonauts (1963) More at IMDbPro »

The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity

Hercules makes a mildly explicit comment about enjoying the company of women who might be encountered on an island the argonauts explore. The priestess of Hecate performs a somewhat suggestive dance in a revealing dress.

Violence & Gore

A number of incidents of fighting violence. Multiple sword fights. Skeleton warriors stab to death two argonauts; in one case, blood is shown on the sword. A stab wound (not gory) is shown on Jason. A mariner falls to his death from the ship's crow's nest. An argonaut is crushed to death by a falling statute. Two harpies (flying monsters) repeatedly attack an old man. Hydra (many-headed monster) attacks Jason and is killed by sword piercing.




Many suspenseful moments. Harpies attack with screams; hydra is terrifying beast; skeleton warriors are meant to terrify; the titan Talos shakes ship to pieces as men fall into water. Older special effects detract from the terror for contemporary audiences, but scenes will be intense for some (especially children).

Suggested MPAA rating: PG for some battle sequences/violence and intense moments
