007 is back and it’s about dang time! It’s been a long time since we’ve seen this kind of action on the big screen and we are all ready for some classic James Bond quotes from No Time To Die. But is this one kid-friendly? Is No Time To Die safe for kids? This parent movie guide of the latest James Bond movie will help you decide what ages it’s appropriate for.
About No Time To Die
In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica.
His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help.
The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

Are There End Credit Scenes In No Time To Die?
This shouldn’t surprise fans of the James Bond series: but there are no end credit scenes in No Time To Die.
Being the last time we see Daniel Craig as Bond, and that there isn’t an official replacement for the role as of airing, well… it just makes sense.
There is, however, the traditional words James Bond will return because you know this franchise isn’t going anywhere!
When Can You Pee During No Time To Die?
The most critical information in this entire post may be this section.
No Time To Die is a long movie: 2 hours and 43 minutes run time.
When can you run and pee during No Time To Die?
Here’s a list of times to dash out and hit the restroom with the kids if you decide to take them. We suggest these times where you won’t miss too much of the action or plot lines.
- 24 minutes when the theme song and credits play. Yes, Iconic Bond moment. But also not necessary if you gotta run and pee during No Time to Die!
- 38 minutes in the bar after Felix mentions going to Cuba
- 55 minutes when they are escaping from the party (miss a little action, but not some big moments that follow!)
- 1 hour 3 minutes when Bond is on a raft
- 1 hour 17 minutes when Madeleine finishes talking to Safrin
- 1 hour 33 minutes after Bond says “I don’t know her at all”
- 1 hour 45 minutes during the car chase if you really need to go– you’ll want to be in your seat for the rest of the movie!
- 1 hour 53 minutes when Nomi picks up Bond if you wanted to watch the whole car scene.
Is No Time To Die Safe For Kids? Parent Movie Review
Spy movies are BIG with kids- the success of Spies in Disguise shows that the whole James Bond thing transcends age.
And when you have someone with a name as big as Bond. James Bond. headlining the next big movie, you know kids will be asking if they can go see it.

We’ll also talk about the PG-13 rating and how that may affect your decision on what ages No Time To Die is appropriate for.
This parent movie review and guide will help you decide if buying a ticket to see No Time To Die will be a full family affair!
Is No Time To Die Safe For Kids? Language
There wasn’t nearly as much swearing as expected in this one.
It was pretty sparse, but some big hitters made their way into the dialogue.
If language is a concern for your family, please know that No Time To Die includes the use of the h@ll, bloody h@ll (they are Brits afterall!), the F bomb, J-sus Chr!st, sh!t, and @ss.
There may be a few more instances, but honestly, the action and violence were more concerning than the language here.
Violence: What Ages Can Watch No Time To Die?
It’s a Bond movie!
So you know that means there are explosions, violence, death of many bad guys mostly by gunfire.
There are chase scenes, car deaths, drowning, a near-drowning of a child, and more.
No Time To Die has a lot of gunshots and a fair amount of blood, but no major gory scenes.
Sex and Nudity: Is No Time To Die Ok For Kids?
Bond gets some action in bed, but he’s not nearly as bad as he had been in the past. Growth, Mr. Bond.
The sex scenes are limited to one partner, a huge change for Bond! And it’s generally implied: there are passionate kisses that end up in a bed where one can presume sex occurred.
And there’s no nudity other than the bare back of a woman.
Is No Time To Die Too Scary For Kids?
James Bond movies are A LOT of action, and they tend to circle around the idea of “the end of the world.”
Is No Time To Die Too Scary for kids?
If they are sensitive to ideas like chemicals or a mass virus spreading across the globe (um, hello!) this could be scary for some kids.
Characters do die during a chemical attack and it’s not pretty, though not exactly scary either.
The scariest moments will be about the kids featured in the movie. One child has to defend her home against an intruder and almost dies by drowning; another is taken hostage by a bad guy with sinister plans.
These moments could be too scary for young or sensitive kids who could see themselves in the action.
What Does PG-13 Means For No Time To Die?
No Time To Die is rated PG-13 for violence, extreme action sequences, disturbing images, language, and suggestive sex and adult content.
It’s basically a Bond formula: if your family has seen the previous Bond movies, this one follows the same pattern when it comes to language, violence, and sexual content.
What Ages Are Appropriate To Watch No Time To Die?
As always, you know your kids best!
But we think No Time To Die could be appropriate for ages 10 and up if they have exposure to previous Bond films or even action movies like the Marvel franchise.
It’s a bit more serious and adult- and boy is it long at 2 hours 43 minutes!- so it may not be a great option for kids who have a hard time sitting still in the theater.
The action does keep the movie going at a fast clip, so there’s not a lot of slow or boring parts.
But extremely young kids will certainly have a hard time keeping up with the story as well as being interested due to the length.
