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

Nothing sexual which goes beyond the kissing shown in previous Harry Potter films, except for one sequence in which a teenage boy has a vision of his friends kissing. It is implied that they are naked, but their bodies are largely obscured by smoke.

Part of a teenage girl's back is shown briefly as a teenage boy helps zip up her dress. They kiss briefly afterwards.

Characters take a potion which turns them into another character, and then change clothes; one of the female characters who took the potion is seen as a man wearing a bra in this scene, but it is played innocently for comic effect, as all the characters are the same person, literally.

A teenage boy strips down to his underwear to dive into a pond.

A man mentions having wizards having sex with muggles.

Violence & Gore

Many magical wand battles between good and evil wizards. Any injuries depicted result from magic and not real life violence. Magic causes a face to swell briefly.

Several characters are killed with magic. It is implied that a snake eats someone.

A character loses an ear and the side of his face is seen to be bloody.

A character is stabbed by a knife thrown at him. A bloody knife is later shown, as is a bloodstain on the front of his clothing.

A character's arm is injured during teleportation, and deep wounds are briefly seen before being magically mended. Blood is shown on another character's hands, and later the same character comes across bloodstains on the ceiling of a haunted house.

We see two teenage boys and a teenage girl on a shore, one boy finds an elf lying limp on the ground, his chest covered in blood and a bloody knife clatters to the ground as the boy grabs him. The elf happens to be dying.

A character has the word "Mudblood" scratched onto her arm. A knife is held to her throat to threaten other characters.

A woman transforms into a snake and attacks the hero, who escapes unhurt.

In an animated sequence, shadowy figures are seen to die in undetailed ways; the outline of a stabbing and hanging are briefly seen.

Profanity

4 uses of "bloody", 3 uses of "bloody hell", 1 use of "piss", 1 use of "hell", 1 use of "damn", 1 use of "ass", around 4 "shit", 2 uses of "git".

"Mud-blood", "dirty-blood", and "half-blood" is said as insults and written once on a character's arm.

"Oh my god" is used.

On two occasions, presumably alcoholic drinks are seen appearing in champagne glasses.

Men are seen holding glasses of presumably alcoholic beverages.

Darker than previous films in the series. Definetely the most mature and emotionally intense.

There is a jump scene involving a snake attack. Wand battles can be intense, and several recurring characters die.

A scene involving a magic locket briefly trying to drown a character, which some may find scary, and some magical visions shown are frightening and abrupt.

More blood and injury is shown in this film than any other film in the series. The appearance of the main villain continues to be frightening, made perhaps more intense by his bigger involvement in the film than previous ones, and the fact that evil has the upper hand and Harry and his friends are on the run.

Dobby's death is very sad.
