MPAA Rated PG-13 for prolonged sequences of action violence, and a brief rude gesture

Sex & Nudity

  • One brief scene of a man and a woman kissing.
  • Women are seen wearing dresses that show a slight hint of cleavage, and leg skin.
  • Non-sexual shirtless scenes.
  • A man and a woman make out briefly in a van. The man pushes the woman towards him before one of the assistants posing as a medic shuts the door.
  • T'Challa and Nakia share some kisses, a couple of them a bit sensual.
  • Nakia and Okoye wear flattering evening wear to a casino; Nakia's dress exposes her shoulders, Okoye's a bit of cleavage.
  • Some Wakandan traditional garb displays female midriffs
  • T'Challa, M'Baku and others sometimes go about without shirts.

Violence & Gore

  • There are battles with swords, spears, guns and fantastical weapons. Violence includes slashes, stabs and hand-to-hand combat. A character breaks another's arm, and a person's throat is cut, but without strong detail.
  • The violence in Black Panther is slightly more intense and realistic than other MCU films, with blood regularly visible during combat. Characters are impaled and slashed with spears and swords, the blood and wounds not always focused on by the camera.
  • A man is stabbed in the chest, another the same, another stabbed in the abdomen.
  • A man is cut numerous times during a fight
  • A large battle / civil war takes place with friends fighting each other. No clear if anyone actually dies, though bodies are thrown, trampled, stabbed, etc.
  • Security guards are shot, some at point blank range, another shot in the back unexpectedly
  • 2 main characters are shot, one at point blank range (off screen). Bullet wounds are shown (though not much blood)
  • We witness plenty of typical superhero action here.
  • Characters get punched and kicked and shot at.
  • A few aircraft are shot out of the sky
  • Cars crash. Some are blown to bits.
  • There's some seriously frenetic action involving high-tech Wakandan spears, secret arm cannons and-well, not to give too much away¬¨-some well-armored animals.
  • A few violent moments are worth noting in greater detail.
  • Someone has his throat cut during a dramatic battle sequence.
  • Others are stabbed in the shoulder or gut during ceremonial battles, and we subsequently glimpse their bloody wounds.
  • A guy is shot in the spine, almost ending in his death.
  • A woman is shot in the head and killed.
  • Someone's thrown off a cliff, apparently to his doom.
  • Folks die via spear and claw and bullet (with one being shot treacherously in the back).
  • In flashback, we see men seemingly intent on sparking violence in Oakland, California, and they hide a pair of automatic weapons when someone comes to the door.
  • We hear about some colonial-era atrocities.
  • And there's also mention of slaves who, instead of submitting to slavery, killed themselves
  • A bunch of flowers are set on fire
  • A large animal gets thrown to the ground.
  • We hear an arm apparently break.
  • Killmonger has a long history as a soldier, assassin and spy, and he says he's ceremonially scarred himself for each life he's taken.
  • His body is covered with such scars.


  • During a comical scene, one character gives someone the middle-finger.
  • Although not actually in the film, the movie's soundtrack is explicit.
  • A few uses of the word sh**.
  • We hear at least five s-words, a few uses of "a--" and at least one use of "b--ch," (some of which are in songs playing in the background).
  • Additionally, we hear several instances of "h---" and two misuses of God's name.
  • There's one crude hand gesture.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A scene takes place in a bar.
  • A character ask for whiskey
  • While Wakandan legend says the Black Panther's power comes from Bast, it technically flows from a flower that's ground into powder and then mixed into a liquid.
  • When the Wakandan king (who, as mentioned, also serves as Black Panther) needs to undergo ritual combat with another claimant to the throne, he drinks another drug-laced beverage, which temporarily removes his special powers.
  • Attendees at a casino consume various alcoholic beverages.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Many intense battle scenes, showing many people being stabbed by spears.
