Sex & Nudity

  • A man drinks his coffee from a mug shaped like a woman.
  • Passing joke about "Playmate of the month."

Violence & Gore

  • The Russian sub's political officer is murdered (death is shown onscreen) in a quick struggle with the captain, but no blood or gore is part of the scene. The shot where tries to breathe, but can't because his neck is broken, can be a little disturbing.
  • Two people get shot with a pistol and show blood stains on their chest and shoulder. One of them dies. Not very gory.
  • Jack shoots a bad guy, but they don't show the bad guy going down.


  • Name of "Jesus" is sworn
    • 6 uses of Goddamn
    • 1 use of Shit
    • A few uses of Hell, Damn, and Ass
    • 3 uses of Son of a Bitch
    • 1 use of Bastard

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • No drugs. Very brief drinking in scenes of meetings between politicians/diplomats, but alcohol is not the focus of such scenes. The Russian engineer smokes cigarettes and offers one to Jack Ryan when he boards the Russian sub. Jack accepts it, but turns green and starts coughing and they all laugh. This is a key plot point to establish trust between the Russians and Americans, as Ryan had previously stated that he didn't smoke.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Most of the film feels very intense. Nothing too serious, though.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The final scenes with the torpedoes chasing the submarines and the explosions might be considered "intense". The gunshots and pursuit of a KGB agent aboard the Russian sub may also be considered intense (see "Violence and Gore"). The death of the political officer is a brief but moderately intense struggle.
