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.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

When Brenda bends over, Gadget stares at her clothed butt (as does the camera) and we hear him make spontaneous and excited chimpanzee-like noises (due to what he sees).

Violence & Gore

An armored van drives through a wall and a robot from inside it shoots some sort of beam that strikes Brenda's father and kills him (but we only see the beam and not the impact or actual death). When John Brown, after being outfitted with a cybernetic body as a result of his accident, was training with a guru to control his new abilities, he accidentally crushes the guru's testicles.


A few Darn's and 2 "God's" used as exclamations. Also, "obtaining the balls" was allegedly construed as this by the MPAA when rating this film.

We see some champagne at a formal dance, and Gadget brings two glasses over for Brenda and himself. Claw takes one of them, however, and quickly downs it.

A scene where people run in comic terror down a street/alley from the sounds of a monster might be scary to younger kids, but we then see that it's really the evil Gadget just making the sounds/shadows of such a monster.

There's scenes of a tarantula. Very scary.
