MPAA Rated PG-13 for intense violent sequences throughout, some sexuality, language and smoking

Sex & Nudity

  • Severine's dress on the island is low cut. During the outdoor scene with Bond and Silva, she is bent over and you can see well down her dress, revealing significant cleavage.
  • Bond appears to have sexual relations with two women. He engages one while standing against a wall. (Both are naked with critical body parts obscured.) Later, they lounge in bed. He meets the second in a casino. She's wearing a revealing dress ... and a gun. Later, Bond shows up on the woman's boat and slips, naked, into her shower as she's taking one. Kissing and making out ensues, leaving the impression that they do much more after the scene cuts.
  • Eve gives Bond a straight razor shave, adding to the experience touches of sensuality in the way she touches his face. The next day they exchange a sexually charged double entendre or two. He can briefly be seen attempting to open her dress.
  • Silva also makes "moves" on James. And when the villain bad-mouths M, Bond quips that at least she never tied him to a chair. "Her loss," Silva says. Then he begins to stroke Bond's thighs and face, talking suggestively all the while. Bond responds by suggesting this isn't the first time he has been sexually involved with a man. This scene is more threatening than sexual.
  • The film's opening sequence, of course, features a number of lithe, stylized women moving in time to the theme song.

Violence & Gore

  • Bond, surrounded by Silva's men, uses a gun he's holding and manages to shoot and kill all of them, except for Silva.
  • There is constant shooting throughout the movie.
  • Bond runs up, jumps through the air and kicks a man, breaking his neck and killing him.
  • Bond extracts the remnants of a bullet from his torso using a knife (some blood).
  • Bond engages in a fight with three bodyguards in a bar. One of them tackles Bond over the side of a small bridge which hovers over a Komodo dragon pit. the two fight inside the pit, and the man is then dragged away by a Komodo dragon (we see the bite wound and him being dragged away).
  • A woman is shot in the stomach and dies (offscreen, but the dead body is seen later).
  • Silva kills two guards (offscreen, bodies are shown briefly on the ground).
  • Silva leads some of his men dressed as police officers to a public inquiry in order to kill M. A shootout engages, police guards are shot and some people attending the inquiry are shot but no blood is shown.
  • A few dead bodies are shown at the start with bloody wounds/pools of blood.
  • A man opens his mouth and shows that all but two teeth in his upper jaw are fake and that his left jawbone is fake.
  • A character is shot in the head by a sniper. There is some brief blood spray.
  • Bond wrestles a gun off one of Silva's men and shoots the ice they are standing on into freezing cold water. Bond then strangles him underwater by getting him into a headlock in his leg.


  • During Bond's training, when the trainer says "M", Bond says "bitch".
  • "Shit" is used five times.
  • First time in Bond history the f-word is used twice. Both are easy to miss. First is said by M as mentioned below. The next is muttered under breath by Silva when he sees Bond fall through ice of a frozen lake after trying to shoot him.
  • One use of the phrase "fucked up" is said, but it is very easy to miss as it is said casually.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Medical tests reveal that Bond may be addicted to alcohol and other substances. We see him pop pills (perhaps painkillers) and drink almost constantly in the Caribbeanplaying a drinking game involving a live scorpion at night, slapping some cash on the bar in exchange for access to a bottle of liquor in the morning. He accepts his trademark vodka martini, which he deems "perfect.".
  • A girl is seen smoking for a very long time.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Silva's presence as a character may be frightening and unsettling for younger children.
  • When Bond enters the Tube, whilst struggling to get a door open, a Tube train approaches, and Bond manages to open the door just before the train passes by; tension increases in this scene.
  • Silva uses a detonator to send a "Not in Service" Tube train crashing into Bond; Bond narrowly escapes.
  • Many of the action and chase scenes are very intense and suspenseful. The whole climax is very tense.
  • A man opens his mouth and shows that all but two teeth in his upper jaw and his entire left jawbone are fake; it gives him quite a frightening and disturbing appearance.
  • Recommended for 15+

Violence & Gore

  • Bond chases Patrice through streets, and Patrice eventually gets onto a train. He fires at Bond as both men climb atop the moving train, and one of the bullets hits Bond, and some blood is seen. Bond commandeers a crane on the train and crashes it into the next car, and climbs across it to get to the next roof, where he and Patrice fight. Moneypenny tries to snipe Patrice, but accidentally hits Bond, who falls off the train and into water below.
  • Silva's armed men engage in a shootout with Bond, M and Kincade. Bond uses the Aston Martin's guns to shoot and kill some of Silva's men. The rest are shot otherwise but no blood is shown on any of the bodies. Silva and the rest of his men arrive in a helicopter causing much destruction, Skyfall blows up, ejecting shrapnel into the helicopter pilots and causing the helicopter to crash into Skyfall causing a huge explosion killing many of Silva's men.
  • Silva puts a gun to M's head and puts his head on the other side of her head and tells her to kill them both. She refuses to and Bond throws a knife into Silva's back. He dies from this.
  • M is shot during Silva's assault on Skyfall and dies from blood loss.
  • Bond and Patrice get into a fight inside a building, wrestling over a sniper rifle. The two are seen silhouetted, so most of the violence isn't actually seen. Patrice eventually falls out of a window and dies.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The final battle in the mansion and when Bond is in the ice is very intense.
  • M's death may be upsetting to many people.
