Gemini Man | 2019 | PG-13 | – 2.6.5

content-ratingsWhy is “Gemini Man” rated PG-13? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “violence and action throughout, and brief strong language.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes some cleavage revealing outfits and a bathhouse scene with men and women wearing swimwear and robes and one possibly nude woman; one bloody assassination by sniper shot, several exchanges of gunfire among groups of armed people and many dead with little blood shown, a vehicle exploding killing a man, discussions of war and grief over the dead, and discussions of genetic manipulation; and at least 1 F-word derivative. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.”


While preparing to retire, an elite operative and professional hitman (Will Smith) realizes that he’s being tracked by a younger, seemingly as skilled, but almost prescient assassin, who seems determined to eliminate him. Also with Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen, Benedict Wong, Douglas Hodge, Ralph Brown, Linda Emond, Ilia Volok and E.J. Bonilla. Directed by Ang Lee. [Running Time: 1:57]

Gemini Man SEX/NUDITY 2

 – A woman is told to remove her clothing so that a gunman can see if she is bugged; we see her wearing a bra and underwear as a man searches her (cleavage and her bare abdomen and back are seen). A woman wearing a bikini and an open robe is seen in the background of a scene (cleavage and her bare abdomen are seen) and it is implied that a married man is having an affair with her. A man’s shirt is partially unbuttoned and we see his bare chest and partial abdomen. A woman wears low-cut T-shirts that reveal cleavage in a few scenes. A man is shown shirtless and with bloody wounds on his bare back. Men wearing trunks under robes are seen in a bathhouse scene (we see partial bare chests, abdomens and legs) and a woman is seen wearing a bikini (cleavage and her bare abdomen are seen) and one female form is seen in the background (it is not clear if she is nude or wearing a swimsuit).
 A woman asks a man if he is attracted to her and he says no. People discuss relationships in a few scenes. A woman asks a man if he has a child and whether he has had any long-term relationships. A man asks another man if he has ever had sex.

Gemini Man VIOLENCE/GORE 6

 – A sniper prepares a gun for a long range shot into a speeding train: as he prepares to take the shot, a young girl on the train moves into the line of fire and he waits, and then takes the shot and we see a video of a dead man on the train with blood on his neck and head and blood spray on the set and window next to him. A man and a woman shoot at many other armed people and several fall to the ground (no blood is shown); the woman is shot in the leg and we see a lot of glistening blood on her pant leg as she affixes a tourniquet.
 Two men exchange gunfire in an extended scene as they each run and jump through buildings, and rooftops until one man is shot at and falls off a roof; he runs and steals a motorcycles, speeds through traffic while being chased by the other man, and one shoots the other’s motorcycle and he is thrown to the ground (we see him with bloody scrapes on his face), and the other man speeds on his motorcycle and slams the first man into a car.
 Several armed men move toward a house where a man inside shoots and kills all of them (there are a couple of possible blood spurts). A man shoots another man in the chest at close range (he falls back on the floor with no visible blood). A man hears a noise on a boat deck, draws a gun and goes to investigate, and he is attacked by two men; the gun discharges (no one is struck), and the man is killed off-screen and thrown into the ocean along with a woman that had also been killed off-screen (no blood is shown). We hear a man being killed while on the telephone with another man (we do not see the attack or the aftermath).
 A woman is attacked by a man holding a gun and they fight with punches and throws and the woman is slammed into windows and desktops before she pins the man to the floor and holds a gun to his face; we later see that she has the man hogtied and she hands another man several of his extracted teeth (a little blood is on the teeth and she has bloody cuts on her forehead and a bloody nose). A man fights two other men and a woman: the woman shoots the man several times and the bullets ricochet off a helmet he is wearing, she shoots thrown canisters of propane and they explode engulfing the man in flames and he slumps to the floor where he dies. Two men fight in an extended scene with heavy blows landing and slamming each other into walls of piled up human skulls as a woman points a gun at one of the men but does not fire; one man draws a knife and the two men continue to fight, one man holds a human bone across the other man’s throat, the two men fall over a ledge and into water where one man is held under until the woman shoots the other man in the shoulder and he swims away (the other man surfaces and coughs). Two men fight on a rooftop where one holds the other around the throat, slaps him in the face, punches him several times on the back of the head, and one man knocks the other man out with a blow to the face with his gun butt. A man cuts another man on the arm using a knife and removes a tracking device (we hear a squish and see a bit of blood on the arm and the device).
 Many rapid gunshots are fired into a shop where a man and a woman are hiding and bottles shatter and the interior of the shop breaks apart (the individuals are not struck) and sparks fly. A man is shot in the neck with a dart containing bee venom and he falls to the floor gasping for air until another man injects him with an antidote and he begins to breathe normally. A tank fires an explosive at a truck and it blows up and flips over (one man is trapped inside).
 A man holds a gun on another man in several scenes. A gunman tells a woman to remove her clothing so that he can search her for a bug (please see the Sex/Nudity category for more details). A man enters a woman’s apartment and she draws a gun on him (she does not shoot). A gunman tells another man that he is going to put two bullets into a woman’s head (he does not shoot her). A gunman leads a woman through a basement and catacombs where we see many human skulls and bones piled up; the woman is tied to a column and her mouth is taped. A simulation/practice area shows many armed people exiting an armored vehicle and shooting as people run out of a building; other armed men shoot and yell for the people to get out of a building and several of them are shot (no blood is visible).
 A man talks about another man having tied weights onto his feet and telling him to tread water as long as he could; he says that he did until he drowned (we see him sinking into water) and then he was revived. A man swats a bee and steps on it and says that he is deathly allergic to them. A man has a nightmare about being forced to swim as a child and being afraid of the water; we hear a child panting in panic as a man pushes him back into a pool to swim.
 A man and a woman argue about the failure of a mission. Two men talk about one man having been manipulated into killing someone. A man talks about his abilities as he ages and the possibility of accidentally shooting an innocent person or child as his skills deteriorate. A man says, “I do love capping me some bad guys.” A man talks about, “Boots on the ground in Yemen,” and that people will grieve over their sons and daughters killed in war. Two men argue and one yells that he was told that his parents dumped him at a fire station. A man talks about his mother beating him. A man says that he sprinkled another man’s ashes in the Caribbean.
 A man is shown with a long raw scrape down his back and another man uses tweezers to pull something out of his back (it’s shrapnel of some sort).

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
