Sex & Nudity

PG-13 for action/adventure violence and some sensuality


(44:02) Indy and Elsa kiss passionately a couple times and then drop to the floor in bathrobes, still kissing.

(52:57) Indy Sr hints that he slept with Elsa, "She talks in her sleep".

(57:41) Elsa kisses Indy while he is tied up.

(1:13:39) It is lightly implied through dialogue that both Indy and his father have sex with Elsa at different times.

Violence & Gore


A man ages rapidly - his skin rots, his eyes shrink into their sockets, and his hair grows long. Then he turns into a skeleton and shatters on the wall.

A man is decapitated, and his head rolls toward the camera (no blood).

A man is shot in the head and blood dribbles down his face - we see the bullet stuck in his forehead.

A man is shot in the stomach and a large amount of blood soaks through his shirt.

Indy shoots through three Nazis with a powerful pistol; bloody bullet holes are seen in each of their backs.

A group of men is gunned down by the Nazis; we see one of them laying on the ground with many patches of blood on his clothes.

Indy guns down two Nazis with no blood.

A man is thrown under a moving tank tread, but his actual death is not shown.

A man is thrown off a cliff, and we see a close-up of his screaming face as he falls. Then we briefly see him rolling under the tank as it lands.

Much hand-to-hand combat and gun fighting. Some explosions.



A few utterances of "Hell" and "Damn". One abuse of "Jesus Christ".


There is very limited alcoholic or drug use in the film. Elsa lights a cigarette on one scene and champagne or wine is drank in an early scene of the movie.


The overall tone of the movie is quite light-hearted, there are practically no intense moments so this film is very appropriate for young viewers. If a child can handle the Bubble Guppies then Last Crusade shouldn't be a problem.

Indiana is forced to go through a path laid with deadly traps with only his father's research diary to provide him clues of how to overcome them. These include spinning blades that must be dodged being in a supplicant position, a path laden dead drop covered by fragile tiles while the safe tiles are marked by the letters of the name of God in Greek. Finally, the last test is to take a leap of faith over a chasm with seemingly no bridge; Indiana takes an apparently suicidal step, and promptly steps on a stone bridge that visually blends in with the rock face so thoroughly, it is essentially invisible from where Indy was standing.

The major and most intense/frightening scene is that of the villain's death where he rapidly ages. This means that his skin rots in seconds, his hair grows and falls off, and his entire body eventually becomes a dying skeleton. His voice also becomes deep and gravelly and his eyes bulge which may frighten some of the younger viewers.

Those who find rats revolting may find one scene disgusting.

This movie isn't nearly as intense as the previous two. Instead of sacrificial rituals where people's hearts are ripped out we instead have to listen to Mickey Mouse jokes.

If Spielberg had appealed this movie for a G-rating he probably would have gotten it.

Overall this film is OK for children 3 and up.
