Moderate portrayals of violence with some details are depicted. Portrayals of violence also include some infliction of pain and injury but are never detailed, intense or prolonged.

The film contains several sequences of violence, where moderately impactful blows are portrayed, along with occasional details such as infliction of pain and injury.

In one scene, three men are decapitated by a mutant, but the depiction is not detailed, and partly obscured by a cloud of dust.

Another mildly impactful depiction of violence occurs when a person's leg is broken when he is kicked from the side of the knee joint. While there is no depiction of bloodshed, the injury is implied by the sound effects and the angling of the leg.

In addition, there is also a scene where a person is held by the neck and choked for a period of time.

Throughout the film, there are sequences of combat amongst mutants and between the mutants and humans, with occasional moderately impactful depictions of violence.

Such depictions of violence are more suited for a teen audience.

Expletives are featured, but used infrequently.

There is an utterance of the expletive "f**k" in the film.

The main antagonist has the power to "merge" humans into walls and floors. A human is slowly merged into a wall with visible distress and pain on his face (happens twice).

The antagonist causes several people at once to fall through the floor, stopping them when their body parts are sticking out of the floor, still attached to wherever their bodies are. The people scream briefly, and then are silenced. The body parts are shown twitching.

Possibly this film could be a mild 15 or Strong PG-13 for the stuff thats in it its quite brutal

Rated PG-13 for sequences of violence, action and destruction, brief strong language and some suggestive images
