This movie two main female characters; Hathor and Zaya. They're the love interests of our heroes and do not speak to each other.

Two "cameo characters" are Anat and Astarte and they have very limited screen time. They exchange a couple words during battle but never a full sentence.

Sionevar disagreed with the rating and said:
In the battle scene with the giant snakes, Astarte addresses Hathor, and says 'Pretty girl, you don't belong in battle'. Both are female, both are named, and that line is not about a man, so isn't that a pass?

It might only be one line, but that's all that's needed, and more than a lot of other movies manage!

@ Dionever: in that scene you mention Hathor never speaks back to Asterte, so it is not a pass. They are suposed to talk to EACH OTHER.
