Sex & Nudity

MPAA rating: PG-13 for intense action violence, disturbing images and some thematic elements


We see Bruce Wayne shirtless for a brief moment.

Violence & Gore


There are lot of fighting and beatings.

Bruce's parents death is brutal and shocking; they are shot with a gun.

A young boy falls into a well and is attacked by bats.

The Scarecrow's gas intends to kill people in a disturbing way.

A man's house is put on fire and he is left there to die.



1 abuse of the name "Jesus"; 1 misuse of "God" paired with "damn"; there are 5 additional uses of the 'd' word; there are 8 instances of "hell"; and 1 of the 's' word.

Crass language: people say "ass" once; "butt" once; "crap" twice.


No substance use is ever shown apart from alcohol or smoking. While the plot revolves around drugs and drug dealers, the film casts them in a distinctly negative light.

A man uses fear toxins to cause people to hallucinate.


The film has a generally dark atmosphere.

One of the main villains uses a hallucinogenic gas that causes great fear. The effects are quite disturbing, with faces changing into monsters, lashing out and scaring others.

One intense scene involves Batman at a warehouse and attacking thugs. In another scene, bats badly scare a little boy and create a scary and claustrophobic effect.

Twice in the movie, a house burns down, once killing many, and another almost killing a man.

A boy witnesses the murder of his parents. .
