MPAA Rated PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi action and violence, language, and brief suggestive content

Sex & Nudity

  • A character explains a reproductive plan with illustrations of him being intimate in human form, fully clothed, with several alien species. They then show the act done as a flashback sequence, which could be graphic to younger audiences.
  • Characters visit a pleasure colony filled with female humanoid robots that rub up against people and are suggestive in their demeanor. Sex is implied as one character is partially disrobed and redressing.
  • Early in the film a man speaks with a woman in a manner that suggests they have a physical encounter for research purposes. Sex is strongly implied, and is confirmed by the conversation that follows.
  • References to male genitalia specifically penis and scrotum. Scrotum being used for a derogatory term
  • Mantis mentions to Peter that he has sexual love for Gamora.
  • Nipples are mentioned three times throughout the film.
  • Mild jokes and occasional innuendo

Violence & Gore

  • One scene where characters are shot out into space to suffocate and freeze to death.
  • Rocket has a remote control that shoots people up and down. He does that several times throughout the scene.
  • Some blood is shown, but no gore is ever shown.
  • One humorous scene where people are bounced hundreds of feet in the air and dropped multiple times. If this was shown realistically, it would be disturbing.
  • Baby Groot is seen holding a severed toe (with some blood on it) in a humorous scene.
  • Some characters come upon skeletons in a disturbing scene.
  • Most violence is presented in a humorous and light-hearted tone.


  • One use of "f-k". Some uses of "shit", "damn", "hell", "ass", "bitch", "bastard", "dick", "douchebag", "freaking" and "fricking", from a couple to about half a dozen times.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • In one scene a group of characters are drinking heavily and acting raucous.
  • Groot is doused in alcohol in one scene.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A handful of scenes attempt to depict violence in a lighter tone with comical music or distraction and most are successful in this. One unique scene depicts two characters as they laugh and skip along in slow motion while indiscriminately killing hundreds of people, who are sleeping or just waking up. The scene is stylistically portrayed with impressive effects and sprays of blood while raining bodies all around them. Some viewers may be disturbed by the sociopathic behaviour.
  • A lot darker than the first one, especially because of its depressing ending.
  • There are a few scenes where characters are shot out into space to suffocate and freeze to death.
  • A skeleton graveyard is revealed at one point.
