Sex & Nudity

(4/10)

USO girls wear skimpy sequined outfits and dance in short skirts. Other women sport blouses that accentuate their breasts. Steve is given a heavy kiss by a female soldier.

After Steve undergoes his transformation, he walks out of the contraption shirtlessobviously impressing Peggy. When a civilian invites a female agent to have some fondue with him, Steve mistakes it as a suggestive, sexual invitation.

But he only has eyes for one womanagent Peggy Carter. He admits to her that he's never danced with a girl before. "I figured I'd wait," he says. And when she asks what he's waiting for, he says, "The right partner." She later favors him with a kiss of her own.

Violence & Gore

Voilence: (7/10) Gore: (5/10)

Byfar one of Marvels most voilent movies, the voilence in this movie is bloody, and more directed to humans and guns than CGi villians and Sci-Fi weapons.

In the opening, one man is chrushed by rocks, we see a small wound on his head. Another man is shot in the chest and a big exit wound appears on his back. Blood is seen bursting out.

During a shotout about 40 min. Into the movie this happens:

One man blows up a room filled with people. Not graphic whatsoever.

A man guns down another man with to bullets. Small wounds are seen on him and a little blood on his mouth.

The shooter is then shot in the arm, resulting in a bloodsplat on the wall behind him plus a red mist from the wound. This is extremely brief and not graphic.

The shooter later shoots to people, small dark mist is seen in the air.

A woman tries to shoot the man, but she is shot. A red mist gushes out of her chest. The impact is of-screen but the mist goes on-screen.

Two men are shot with a Tommygun. Large red and gray mists are seen.

One driver is shot in the backhead. The camera is on his front, and the blood is out of focus.

One man takes cyanid and dies.

Other minor fistfights in the shotout.

Captain America goes on a rescue mission, during the scene this are some notable acts of voilence:

Alot of guards are beaten up by Captain America, not voilent.

But when the prisoners are released all hell breaks loose. Guards and prisoners are killed both whit guns and some Sci-Fi gun wich dissendegreades people, not voilent. Blood is seen in the scene, but for the most it's gray smoke mists on impact.

Alot of explosions aswell problaly body counts there to, and the entire scene is very intense.

One man shoots three guards, the impacts is off-screen but it's clear whats going on. One of the guards is also shot in the head. No blood or anything on impact.

One man falls down from a train on a bridge, the man is one of the main characters and it might be upsetling.

One man knife kills a man, no blood and he later trows the knife in a mans back.

3-4 men falls to theire deaths from a airplane. Captain America and a guard falls onto a sort of small airplane with a big propel on. It result with the guard falling into the propell, blood sprays all over the place and in the next clip, blood is seen in a long stream behind the propell. All of it is on-screen and it's very graphic, but brief.

The movie contains alot voilence but the acts mentioned above are the worst. Alot of fist-fighting and many people are hit by the Captains shield. The last half hour is vert voilent.

Profanity

Jesus' name is abused once; God's a handful of times. "Hell" pops up about a dozen times, complemented by a few other choice words: "Ass," "Bitch," "Damn." A Brit interjects "Bloody." We don't see it, but it's implied that one of the soldiers makes an obscene gesture, aiming it at Cap.

Two men drink schnapps.

Soldiers drink mugs of beer in a bar.

We see mugs of beer on other tables and bottles of liquor on a back bar.

A bartender says soldiers are drinking a lot but we see no drunken behaviour.

A man sits in the ruins of a bar and drinks with a liquor bottle at his elbow.

Captain America comments on how he can no longer get drunk.

The face of the main villain may be frightening for younger viewers.

The villian kills three men with a gun-ray, we see them screaming and get disintegrated to ashes. This is a fairly disturbing sequence an is very frightening.

A character is placed in a special chamber and injected with chemicals as part of an experiment. As he is subjected to a radiological treatment, he howls in pain, but insists that they continue the process. There is sparking and electricity arcing with the equipment.

The entire sequence where Cap chases the spy across a small town is quite menacing and intense.

Near the end of the film, Captain America is forced to land a massive plane on a frozen ice sheet to save lots of people from being killed by the plane's destruction. While he is flying it downward, his girlfriend talks with him on a radio explaining that she loves him and wants to help him learn to dance. The scene ends with a long static shock on the line. This could be very emotional for some or intense.
