Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity

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

Audiences see loads of fisticuffs, firefights and explosionsfar too many to detail here. And unlike some superheroes, Cap doesn't hesitate to kill his enemies.

Schmidt guns down a civilian, spattering bright-red blood. We also see a small exit wound in the man's back. Another unfortunate ends his screen time in the blades of a propeller. (There's a brief blood spray visible.) Folks fall from great heights, and one man is sucked into a weird energy vortex. Another is crushed by part of a building, and we see a bit of blood on his head.

Those are modern-tinged gory scenes in the middle of a movie that otherwise has the vibe of a 1940s serial: The body count is high, but the squirm factor low as scores of characters are simply zapped out of existencewith a bloodless blue poofvia futuristic weapons powered by the cube.

Steve apparently suffers some serious pain while being injected with the serum. A spy bites into a cyanide pill and dies, foaming at the mouth.

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.
