MPAA Rated PG-13 for sequences of violence including disturbing images, some sensuality and partial nudity

Sex & Nudity

  • Some female characters wear clothes with slight cleavage
  • Bella and Edward have sex. Edward is seen kissing her neck and ripping the back of her dress. The scene then cuts to a bed where they are seen kissing. The scene is not too long and shadowy. Bare shoulders, Edward's bare chest and bare backs are seen, and part of Bella's bare breast is visible.
  • Kissing is seen several times between characters.
  • A joke made about if Edward and Bella destroyed their room again while having sex. Played for laughs.
  • Jacob imprits on the infant Renesmee, meaning one day their platonic love may inevitably turn into romantic love.

Violence & Gore

  • We see piles of human dead bodies covered in blood; it is implied they were killed by a baby Vampire (we see blood on and around his mouth). It is implied the Volturi will kill him, and his vampire mother is shown being tortured. Two Volturi members rip her head and arms off (shown, no blood at all) to pieces and burn her. The baby vampire is thrown into the fire.
  • A vampire has her head and arms ripped off from her body. We can see her limbless body fall to the floor in a close-up. It is then burned.

  • Great amounts of vampire and wolf corpses are shown constantly throughout the battle.
  • Many destroyed bodies and limbs are seen on the ground.

  • A vampire kills a man and it is implied he drinks his blood as he bites the victim's neck.the victim is an English Punk
  • Two vampires rip off the top half of another vampire's head. No blood is shown, but it is intensely violent and disturbing.
  • A main werewolf is killed. We see a closeup of his corpse and it is very emotional.
  • A vampire runs through a crowd of fighting vampires and werewolves pushing them out of her way and grabs a teen vampire by her hair. She then throws the teen to a wolf, who attacks her violently. The teen is shown trying to escape and her body goes still as the wolf rips her head off. Not bloody, but quite graphic and disturbing.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • the ending is quite sad.
  • This is the most violent Twilight film. However, the level of blood has been toned down.


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

Sex & Nudity

  • There is a short flashback sequence which contains some of Edward and Bella's previous sexual encounters. The sexual content is only ten seconds of the flashback, but is quite intense with strongly implied nudity.
  • Jacob strips to his underwear in front of Charlie before phasing into a werewolf. Mostly played for laughs

Violence & Gore

  • The final battle is very violent. Many vampires and werewolves are killed in violent ways: beheading, limbs ripped off, bones crushed, burned, etc. Several vampires' heads are ripped off and shown to be decapitated, many limbs are torn off, werewolves are killed, many people fall into a pit and burn offscreen and more. Most of the characters die.
  • Aro is seen tackling Carlisle and then they fall on the floor. Aro stands up holding Carlisle's decapitated head. This provokes the violent war. This is incredibly shocking as the book does not specify this, it just says "Alice shows Aro the future."
  • Aro and Edward have a brutal hand to hand combat. Aro grabs onto Edward's head and we begin to hear cracking sound. Bella helps him out and the two eventually rip off Aro's head. His decapitated head is seen up close with an image of fire heading his way in his eye

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The 10 minute battle finale is the most violent, prolonged, intense and suspenseful of all the Twilights.
  • The many deaths in the final fight will upset some people as main characters die in strong instances. However, the deaths are merely a vision of Alice, and in the end, no-one dies.
  • Carlisle's death is sudden, shocking and very intense.
  • Seth and Leah's deaths are very intense and violent.
  • Jasper's death is quite intense.
