The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
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

3/10

One passionate kiss between Thor and Jane.

A female nurse pulls down Thor's clothing to reveal his bare buttocks for a second, as she injects a sedative. It is non-sexual and you can't see much.

When Thor is changing into regular clothes, we see part of his buttocks for a second or two. Jane notices this and smiles, but it is very brief and not the focus of the scene. He also walks around with his shirt off for a few minutes.

Loki very briefly threatens to "pay (Jane) a visit myself", after commenting that she's made Thor "soft", but the threat's not delivered in her presence and younger viewers may not pick up on it.

Violence & Gore

6.5/10

Battles, while not particularly bloody, are intense and relentless. Combatants are skewered by blades, pounded by hammers (sometimes vanishing into dust under the assault), frozen and crushed. Folks fall off the sides of cliffs. Others apparently vanish into the vacuum of space. One massive, robot-like guardian blasts fire out of his visor, causing much mayhem. Combatants are thrown through the air and contract frostbite (a side effect of a frost giant's touch).

Thor, naturally, inflicts his share of damage, and even without his hammer he's a force to be reckoned with. He beats up several guards while trying to reclaim his weapon of choice and roughs up about a dozen doctors, orderlies and police officers who are trying to care for him. While battling a huge beast, he turns himself into a human bulletrocketing into the monster's mouth and exiting through the back of its head, leaving behind a gaping wound.

Jane accidentally hits Thor twice with her SUV (once so hard that a window breaks). Darcy tasers the guy. And he's ultimately hit so hard by a gigantic, inhuman soldier that the blow appears to kill him.

Elsewhere, there are loads of ear-rattling explosions. Things crash violently to the ground, and several vicious storms are conjured. A resident of Asgard is nearly murdered in his sleep. Odin injures his eye in battle. (We see the bloody wound.) Thor tips over a banquet table, and he smashes a coffee cup in appreciation.

Profanity

2/10

Extremely tame. "Damn" and "hell" are both used, also the exclamation, "Oh my God!" is used.

3/10

Two characters are seen drinking at a bar briefly. One of the characters return home obviously intoxicated.

6/10

The Frost Giants might be scary for some young kids.

The scenes with car accidents and the hero being struck by a car might also be upsetting.

The final scene with the Destroyer might be frightening, since many buildings are shown being destroyed and the townsfolk must be evacuated. At this, Thor, although he is reduced to an ordinary mortal, confronts the machine and dies in the attempt to apologise to Loki. However, this act of selfless bravery causes his war hammer to return to him to restore his power as a god and he then defeats the Destroyer. (Furthermore, all the townsfolk are evacuated to safety in time.)

One scene with Loki confronting his father about his parentage, discovering that he is adopted and part-Frost Giant may be upsetting, particularly to children who are also adopted or stepchildren -- he's never treated as any less Thor's brother or Odin's son by other characters, but he's very distraught and furious, and his jealousy and sense of betrayal are the cause of his villainy.

Overall, most of the violence is fantastical and against nonhuman enemies, but the fight scenes that take place on Earth and some of the cars crashing might be upsetting in a real-world way.

Total: 20.5/50

One of the least violent films in the MCU it's okay for 12+
