In the words of Diablo, ''YOU WANNA SEE SOMETHING?'' Welp, the good news is for the younger kids, or those with kids, among you is that the Suicide Squad rating is only a PG-13 in the USA, meaning that anybody can go see it.

The movie ratings system is an interesting one, and a movie being slapped with an NC-17 or an R rating can impede its financial success — although that hardly stopped Deadpool now, did it?

Do you wish 'Suicide Squad' had been an R-Rated movie?


Here's a mildly SPOILERish breakdown of the bits that made the Suicide Squad rating a PG-13.

Sex / Nudity

  • Scenes of heterosexual kissing
  • A woman is seen getting dressed
  • One scene of sensual dancing

Gore / Violence / Fright

  • Lots and lots and lots of gun fighting
  • Various people are blown up, chopped in half or punched repeatedly.
  • Destruction of property and public spaces
  • Scenes of people burning alive, though the repercussions are suggested rather than shown.
  • A couple scenes of torture, though again the lack of realism robs the scenes of any real horror.
  • Throughout Suicide Squad, there is very little gore and the violence is mostly cartoonish.

Curse Words

  • 1x Fuck
  • 2x Pussy
  • Severalx Shit, Damn, Dickhead, Bitch / Son of a Bitch


  • Hard liquor, wine and other alcoholic beverages are consumed
  • One reference is made to smoking being cool
