Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
It's been 10 years since John Connor saved Earth from Judgment Day, and he's now living under the radar, steering clear of using anything Skynet can trace. That is, until he encounters T-X, a robotic assassin ordered to finish what T-1000 started.

Terminator 3: Rise of the MachinesClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Terminator 3, released in 2003, has lots of profanity (including "f--k"); extreme, graphic violence (a character puts a gun to his head and threatens to kill himself; the Terminator carves his chest open with a knife to fix his circuitry, with blood shown); edge-of-your-seat car chases; and some mighty scary robots. There is a minimal amount of nudity in brief scenes of male and female Terminators, but both are shot from a distance and heavily shadowed. There also is a very sad death of a parent. A character steals prescription drugs from an animal hospital and takes them. Teens drink beer at a party.
- Sexual Content
- The Terminators -- male and female -- show up on the planet naked from the side, with exposed buttocks. After getting pulled over by a police officer, the female Terminator sees a Victoria's Secret billboard and expands her breasts to a larger size.
- Intense action sequences, with characters killed. Intense peril and some mighty scary robots. Blood. The lead character puts a gun to his head and threatens to kill himself. The Terminator carves his chest open with a knife to fix his circuitry; blood shown around cuts.
- Frequent profanity: "f--k," "bitch," "a--hole," "s--t," "damn."
- Social Behavior
- As in the previous two Terminator films, discussion of making one's own fate and that the only destiny and future is the one you choose for yourself.
- The lead character is shown drinking from a Budweiser bottle. A billboard advertising Victoria's Secret is used in an attempt at humor.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Character steals prescription drugs from an animal hospital and takes them. Teens drink beer at a party.
