MPAA Rated PG for action violence and peril, some scary images and suggestive material, and mild language

Sex & Nudity

  • A character runs off to join a group of girls in bikinis at a hot tub, saying they're Aphrodite's daughters.
  • In one scene, multiple statues are seen showing a woman with no shirt on.
  • After defeating Percy in a fight, there is a brief shot of Annabeth posing, with her butt facing the camera. It is extremely brief.
  • Persephone is clearly unhappy with Hades and openly has lovers. She makes it clear she wants Grover, Percy's satyr friend, to be one of them.

Violence & Gore

  • Miss. Dodds turns into a fury lifting Percy up saying something like, "if you don't give me the lightning, I'll tear your heart out!"
  • Bloody cuts and a strangely bloodless decapitation are mixed in with monster attacks and hand-to-hand combat.
  • After Percy slashes Medusa's head off (offscreen), he decides they'd better take her head with them (we see the head on the ground without any blood being shown. Several times after that the head is shown being held and appears to be without blood, possibly due to Medusa being a monster and no longer human). One of Percy's teachers morphs into a fury (a flying, dragon-like creature) and grabs him, threatening to bite out his heart. Demonic beasts chase and attack the boy and his friends. And when the teens fight back, they slice off several monster heads. Medusa turns a woman to stone with her icy stare. A Minotaur attacks, throwing a car and slamming Percy into a tree. It picks up Percy's mom, who then disappears in a flash of fire before Percy can stab the beastie to death with its own horn.
  • Swordfights are commonplaceand sometimes draw bloodwith faces, arms, hands and other body parts getting sliced. Kicking, punching, chasing, falling from great heights and getting shot with arrows are also par for the course. Grover proves that even crutches can become weapons. A game of capture the flag among demigods looks more like a medieval war zone.
  • In the film's climax, Percy throws a trident at another demigod's throat, knocking him off a skyscraper.
  • Gabe grabs Percy's hair and threatens him, backing him against a wall. A speeding car hits a cow and flips over it.


  • A character says he has a 'horses ass'. The character is part man part horse.
  • A character says "if you see my dad on the highway to hell, kick his ass for me."

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A man drinks a beer.
  • Several men playing cards have beer in front of them.
  • A man talks about a teen boy and accuses him of drinking and doing drugs.
  • People eat Lotus flowers and appear to be affected by losing their sense of time. The flowers dull their senses and cause their vision to be colored like many modern drugs.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The characters almost get killed by three "hellhounds" and a fireplace that turns into a bunch of souls that try to capture them. Frightening screams are heard.
  • A five headed hydra (like a dragon) that breathes fire tries to attack them. When their heads are cut off, they grow them back double.
  • A minotaur attacks them and grabs a woman, holding her up in the air menacingly. Then she vanishes; she is a mother character which may be unsettling to young viewers. She is unharmed later.
  • Hades arrives in two scenes as a giant fiery, menacing creature.
  • A fury (a creepy flying creature) attacks a teenage boy and holds him high in mid-air as it menaces him with a fearsome face and teeth.
  • Medusa gets beheaded and her head is held up in several scenes.
