Star Trek: Insurrection



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

Sex & Nudity
Violence & Gore
1 to 10

MPAA Rating: PG

The latest installment in the "Star Trek" series has Captain Picard and crew aiding a rebellion on a distant planet. With Patrick Stewart, Brent Spiner, Michael Dorn, Jonathan Frakers, Donna Murphy, LeVar Burton and F. Murray Abraham.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Sexual innuendo and kissing. Scantily-clad women sometimes showing cleavage and we nearly see a woman's breasts under her see-through bodysuit. A woman's outfit gets wet and her breasts and nipples are visible through the cloth. A couple are in a tub together but no nudity or sex is shown.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - In some scenes, spaceships are fired upon and lasers are fired at groups of people; sometimes people are killed. A man is shot and falls off a cliff. A cave collapses on a couple and one of them is injured. A couple of fistfights (in one an arm is audibly broken) and scuffles; also a few fires and explosions. We see a man on fire. A man shoves another's face through glass resulting in bloody cuts. Blood spurts from a gash in someone's forehead. In a few scenes, people must have their skin stretched and reattached with staples (one time the procedure results in bloody gashes). A toxin is drawn from someone's neck with a needle.

PROFANITY 2 - A few mild obscenities. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - The future, space travel, sacrifice, revolution, obsession with staying young, plastic surgery.

MESSAGE - The future looks pretty much the same as the present -- except for those spaceships.

Special Keywords: S3 - V6 - P2 - MPAAPG

Our Ratings Explained

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
