Teenage boys probably would like it, otherwise waste of time

Naked body coming out of a pod is PG-13, they don't show detail, and I appreciate that they try to keep it brief and non-suggestive, however I will skip that scene watching this with my 12-14 yr old boys. It spends plenty of time showing a naked female bum, don't need them staring at that at such a young age. The movie keeps the violence at PG-13, but the beginning is traumatic. I think my teenage boys will like it, because they don't expect much from movies yet; doesn't have to make sense, all the plot holes and stupid assumptions as described in this review are real, but teenage boys will probably say "whoah, cool, robots and guns, right on!" I wish there were fewer bad words, but it is PG-13 as opposed to R, which is good.
