MPAA Rated PG-13 for intense perilous sequences, some disturbing images and brief strong language

Sex & Nudity

  • The female protagonist, after undressing, is seen in an underwear/short pants in most of the scenes, exposing her bare legs. There are several shots of her curvaceous and attractive body (feet, thighs, buttocks etc) filmed from various perspectives.
  • None

Violence & Gore

  • There are several lengthy sequences of destruction and action, with a few brief graphic images.
  • An astronaut is seen with a large hole right through his helmet and head (mildly graphic and relatively blood-free).
  • A group of astronauts are hit by debris. The space shuttle is destroyed and all except for two are killed. We briefly see two bodies floating in the shuttle.
  • Astronauts hit things in space with intense force, wounds or physical consequences of these aren't seen, they bounce violently off of various parts of the station screaming in panic.
  • A woman inside a space station finds a huge fire. She tries to put it out with an extinguisher which throws her back into a wall, leaving a cut and bruise on her face.


  • One f-word at around 18:45, and eight or so "Sh*ts". We also hear "Ass," "Bitch," "Damn" and "Hell" a few times also. Several uses of the words "God" and "Jesus." including one religious profanity,
  • Another F-word is almost said but you don't hear the person say anything more than "Fu--"

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The face of a frozen dead body suddenly appears directly in front of Dr. Stone as she and Kowalski are about to enter the space shuttle. The moment is sudden and unexpected, accompanied by intense music, and acts effectively as a jump scare. The dead woman does not wear a space suit, thus her skin has turned blue. Other bodies are floating in the background.
  • The sequences involving the destruction of the space stations are very intense.
  • The whole film has a very tense, disturbing atmosphere. After the first 8 minutes, the action and intensity is constant. Some scenes can also be very emotionally intense and difficult to watch. There are many claustrophobic scenes that could upset viewers.
  • A frozen dead body with a large hole right through his space helmet and head is seen in graphic detail, though without blood (or anything really) in the cranium, so despite it being potentially very intense under normal Earthly circumstances, is much less scary and disturbing than would normally be.
