Sex & Nudity

  • Two characters clearly have romantic interest in each other, but it is shown very minimally (the most is a kiss on the cheek).
  • Two teenaged side characters are shown kissing.
  • In one scene a girl is shown wearing a short skirt and as she turns to get into her car you see a flash of her butt cheeks.
  • Main Characters's Mom and her Boyfriend shown kissing in one scene

Violence & Gore

  • While the tone of the film is much more light-hearted and inviting than the other films in the series, 'Bumblebee' features many sequences of robot on robot violence. Robots are shot, sliced in half, blown up, and the like.
  • Most violent acts happen against humanoid robotic characters, with characters sustaining fatal injuries including dismemberment, decapitation, and crushing, while non-fatal injuries include characters sustaining damage from falls, torture, gunfire, impalement, and electric shock.
  • Violent acts against human characters are mostly non-gory and bloodless. People are tossed around by explosions and big robots or are involved in vehiclular collisions, but generally are assumed to have survived with relatively minor injuries, although they do show the end results, like a main character who is injured early and has a scar on his face for the rest of the film, while others have various scratches and bruises, while another has an arm in a sling.
  • Two human characters are killed on-screen with an alien energy weapon that reduces them to a gelatinous liquid smear.
  • Possibly the most brutal scene depicts a robot being cut in half lengthwise with a sword, shown in close-up., then the two halves fall to either side.

Profanity

  • Agent Burns played by John Cena has a few lines such as "shit and hell." Charlie's mother says "hell."
  • "Oh God what a dumbass" and "Jesus" used in vain

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A mother asks a young character if they are on drugs.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • While this installment is much lighter in tone than the other films, and has less action sequences, there are a few intense scenes, as well as character deaths that definitely earn this film's PG-13 rating.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • There are two sequences where a Decepticon uses an ability that makes humans explode into a clear goopy substance. One of the two humans is a supporting character, and the other is an unimportant character who is only shown in that one short scene. While these scenes fit in line with the film's PG-13 rating, and wouldn't stand out as much in the other films in the series, in the context of this film that is lighter in tone and more inviting to younger audiences, these scenes can be particularly jarring for some who were expecting a less violence.
