Top 10 PG-13 Movies They Should Have Made Rated R

Which PG-13 rated movies suffered the most because the producers of the movie toned down the language, violence, gore, sexuality, etc., enough to earn a more family friendly rating? Which movies would have been better if they had instead made them worthy of an R rating?

The Top Ten

Live Free or Die Hard Live Free or Die Hard Product Image

Worst in the franchise it would be one of the best if it didn't have that stupid PG -13 rating

R all the way

Taken Taken Product Image

This film is the most violent (Way more violent than Happy tree friends)

Fantastic film but waayy to dark and disturbing to be PG-13

Uncut version is better

I’m watching it right now, yeah it should not be pg 13

2012 2012 Product Image

A majority of Earth's people died. It needed to have blood and less comedy.

Pearl Harbor Pearl Harbor Product Image
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy Product Image
Sucker Punch Sucker Punch Product Image

This Shouldn't be PG-13. As for: Poltergeist (1982), The Ring (2002), Drag Me to Hell (2009), Robocop (2014). And why isn't Split this list? Definitely R.

I love sucker punch o yeah its about girls dancing for people, that spells rated r all over it

The Dark Knight The Dark Knight Product Image

There is a psychopath in the movie who kills people for fun. Sometimes is disturbing.

Sometimes the impression is more than the actual vision.

Damn this was a fantastic movie. Talk about intense.

Should've been rated r

Insidious Insidious Product Image

Very scary and needs to be rated. However, once you start watching the movie, it will give you a definite lesson such as don't be so ignorant about having no idea of ghost existence. They are everywhere and they can attack anyone else. Above all, be aware and open your mind when you're buying a house that is not familiar to you especially its history.

Creepy, creepy. It's a little too much for this 13-year old.

Yass...Insidious and the rest of the Insidious series should definitely be rated R

Yep I agree

Terminator Salvation Terminator Salvation Product Image

Should've went for an R. The Terminator movies were meant to be rated R. Nothing makes me madder than when a good R-rated franchise gets ruined with a PG-13!

Drag Me to Hell Drag Me to Hell Product Image

Very disturbing movie, too much, I believe for a thirteen year old. It also delves into deeper and perhaps, darker themes than outwardly supposed, such as eating disorders (If you don't believe me about this, just watch the movie and try to pick up on the hints, there are a lot. )

There is literally a scene which resembles emetophilia. This should be R.

Should be R, is not appropiate for kids under 15. Is very gory

I can tell by the name

The Newcomers

? The Hunger Games The Hunger Games Product Image
? Spawn Spawn Product Image

The Contenders

World War Z World War Z Product Image

Whoever made this PG-13 should be shot in the face because zombies and PG-13 do not mix at all, zombie movies NEED to be excessively gory

The Wolverine The Wolverine Product Image

This movie is bloody and includes sequences of strong violence, this movie shouldn't even be pg-13 on the theatrical version.

I can see the dark shadow of the private parts of wolverine when nude in a bath tub.

Robocop (2014) Robocop (2014) Product Image
Titanic Titanic Product Image

This film sucks! I knew this film was supposed to be rated R but instead it is PG-13. Damn this film is overrated and needs to be forgotten!

Marvel's The Avengers Marvel's The Avengers Product Image
Spectre Spectre Product Image

Unlike the other 007s. This is R Rated scale.
Too Risque and Violent.

The Ring The Ring Product Image

This movie's a little intense for a PG-13 rating.

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective Ace Ventura: Pet Detective Product Image

Cannibal Corpse is in it. Enough saidm

The Bourne Identity The Bourne Identity Product Image
Total Recall (2012) Total Recall (2012) Product Image

But the nudity isn't sexualized. If a movie's nudity is sexually provocative, it should be slapped with an R rating.

Full frontal nudity...that is all.

Billy Madison Billy Madison Product Image
Casino Royale Casino Royale Product Image

This movie should be R because of a guy being shot in the head and a tank falling onto a construction worker made a strong explosion that I could even see the body parts.

This is rated R

Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me Product Image

Should definitely be R/15 because the sex is VERY strong.

It's austin powers for christ sake.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Star Wars: The Force Awakens Product Image

It's not that graphic. Sure it has some fight scenes, but it's not like there's blood everywhere. It deserves the PG-13 rating it got. It's somewhat intense but not graphic enough to warrant a R rating.

So many people were killed, and when the planets were destroyed, and countless billions of people died in their own hell.
So much violence.
I thought the others were intense enough, but I've changed my mind after seeing this.

Spare the teens the embarrasment of this “movie” go watch Empire Strikes Back

Mortal Kombat Mortal Kombat Product Image

To be perfectly honest, it should have been rate r. You know, so it could be more accurate to the games it is based off of. To allow it to be more accurate, and well more interesting, (and gorey). Just saying.

It would've got the R rating if they actually put blood and gore in it just like the game.

They should've unleashed the blood and guts and gore and the insane fatalities instead of selling out in order to please the kiddies, making a mortal Kombat movie PG-13 is a giant slap in the face to the fans, when the reboot/third film comes out, it NEEDS to borderline NC-17 and have all the blood, gore, and fatalities unleashed and NOT HOLD BACK

Mortal Kombat is rad:) and people know their own movie-watching limits so I don't know what to say...
