MPAA Rated PG-13 for sequences of violence and action, and for some language

Sex & Nudity

  • Most of the time, Lara is seen wearing a usual outfit - pants and tight tank top. However She is well clad. No nudity is shown.
  • There are no sex or nudity shown in this movie.
  • In the boxing scene between Lara and another girl, the two girls are seen in a crop top like shirt-a little shorter than a crop top, kind of like a bra- but not cleavage shown.
  • At the beginning of a movie Lara Croft swims in a swimming pool. She is in sport swimsuit in that scene.

Violence & Gore

  • Blood is shown when people are shot.
  • a woman is threatened with a knife by a young man, and chased by him and his 2 friends
  • People are stabbed by various objects including a climbing pick (one such as shown in trailer)
  • A woman is choked, tied up, taken prisoner
  • A man is suddenly impaled by a spike, another crushed by a death trap
  • A man is hit by a grenade and explodes in a shower of pieces and flame. Not very graphic
  • The opening scene is of a woman in a mma fight with another woman. They trade punches, kicks and choke holds.


  • A few uses of the word "Shit", two Uses of "Damn", and one half utterance of "fuck", among other milder profanities.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A character is seen drunk more than once, and while intoxicated aims a gun at people. Later on in the film he says that a certain character has taken advantage of a drunken sailor, meant for comedy.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A woman's life is threatened numerous times by various people. most notably a gun is pointed at her head and the hammer cocked. Meant to deliberately torture her psyche
  • Unarmed slaves are shot in cold blood, including one for being too sick to work.
  • Mild jump scares are present in the tomb, including skeletons, spiders, death traps, etc. One man in impaled, another crushed
  • A few scenes in the 3rd act played as jumpscares with loud sound cues.
  • This movie is very intense because lot of persistence and tenacity is shown in our main character, being able to survive numerous intense and deadly situations in the jungle and gun fights. Situations that many other people would've died in. So I disagree with that mild rating because it doesn't match with the movie's degree of violence and intensity. There is also a lot of spooky music that sets tension to the audience and relates with the ongoing scenarios.
