MPAA Rated PG-13 for adventure violence and scary images

Sex & Nudity

  • In a brief scene, Indy is shown nude behind a foggy glass screen which completely obscures his lower half.
  • A man and a woman kiss a few times. A man is seen bare chested for a brief scene.

Violence & Gore

  • Indy punches Mac in the nose just as he promised.
  • The opening scene of the movie involves a group of Russians dressed like Americans killing a group of American soldiers....all of it is off-screen, but the next scene shows their dead bodies.
  • A group of Russian Soldiers kill Ancient Temple Guards (off-screen, but the bodies are shown)
  • Lots of punching and kicking literally....some characters are shown bloody after a fight (but survive just fine).
  • Several scenes with knife and gun-play (but without almost any blood as a result of gun shots).
  • Some ancient dead bodies are shown, one man was well preserved and when the wrapping comes off...he disintegrates on-screen
  • Lots of jokes about dead bodies. In one scene Indy says "hold this" and throws a mummified corpse at his friend; a close up of the dead face is shown. This scene can be shocking in a 'jumpy' kind of way.
  • Indy kills a man by forcing a blow dart back into his mouth. This is sudden, and rather disturbing.
  • Mac is shot in the foot.


  • Couple uses of "Son of a Bitch" a couple of "Shit" and many uses of "Oh my God","Hell" and "Damn." Mac uses the British profanity "Bloody."

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Some alcohol drinking and smoking.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The scene with the ants will freak some people out.
  • Several dead bodies are shown.
  • Lots of skeletons, one is particularly scary.
  • The opening scene in which guards are gunned down in cold blood may be upsetting and offensive.
  • The death count isn't as much as the previous Indy films.
  • PG-13 for adventure violence and scary images.


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • It is revealed that Mutt was born out of wedlock of Marion and Indy.
  • The movie contains some skimpily dressed natives, although seemingly nothing sensitive is shown.

Violence & Gore

  • An alien disintegrates Spalko.
  • Some violent/creepy themes including Russians killing Americans, and disrupting mummified corpses to find an Alien Skull made entirely of Crystal.
  • Some smaller children may not like the huge ants or the aliens, and the the lead villain is killed by the Aliens as she explodes on-screen.
  • Dovchenko is killed by a huge swarm of ants several inches long. They swarm in to his open mouth as he screams. They carry him across the ground and suck him head-first into a massive ant hill, still screaming. The ant sequence lasts a couple of minutes and could be quite disturbing.
  • Another Russian soldier (the one traveling with Spalko) is covered head to toe with giant red ant's in a brief shot, we are to assume he died.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The ending on-screen death is pretty sudden, though not gory, as the main villain disintegrates on-screen at the hands of a creepy-looking Alien.
  • In a graveyard, we see walking skeletons, but it turns out to be natives. These natives attack Indy and Mutt. This scene can be frightening to some.
  • The aliens can be frightening, and the entire opening sequence may be slightly disturbing. We see men incinerated in the blast of a rocket sled firing up.
