"Sci-fi violence and action throughout, and an intense crash sequence"

This is probably the bloodiest Marvel MCU movie yet; while not graphic, there are some scenes with blood shown.

A person slams to the pavement through a glass awning from an extreme height and the impact is shown. Extremely intense; see Frightening/Intense scenes section.

There are multiple surgery scenes where the wounds are shown being sewn or entered with surgical instruments.

There is a kind of gruesome scene of a man being slammed around by the head by a magical cloak. It is also slightly humorous, so it doesn't seem quite as violent as it really is.

There is a decapitation but the head removal is shown in a shadow reflection.

The car accident has slow motion shots of Steven's hands getting crushed.

The post accident shots of Steven are both bloody and kind of gruesome with all of the stabilizing metal work coming out of his hands and his face is disfigured and scarred.

There is a scene where a Steven is attacked by three thugs who beat him to the ground and kick him repeatedly.

There is a shot of a dead man impaled on a large metal rod.

There is a shot of a person being crushed by a building.

A character is stabbed through the stomach. You see his blood splatter on the ground numerous times as he attempts to get to a hospital. When he does get to the hospital, you see his open wound (bloody) being sewed closed. Slightly graphic.

An Important character is stabbed then dropped hundreds of stories; they die and are shown bloody and broken. It is more emotional than violent, though.

One character is seen with a metal rod sticking out of his chest, dead.

Three characters have the skin around their eyes dissolve during an evil ritual; it is not very violent, but quite unsettling. The characters are seen throughout the movie with burned eyes.

A character is punched in the chest and his spirit is ejected from his body. He is worried that he's been killed or injured, but he is fine.

A man's spirit is shoved against a wall until he bursts into ashes, covering the wall in some soot.

A scene where a main character is killed multiple times through brutal ways. It is shown very quickly though and he always comes back.

one of "sh...",(it is quiet and almost unnoticeable).

An end-credits scene shows a character drinking beer, but it is in a humorous fashion.

The main character skids off a mountain road, crashes his car and is almost killed; his hands are broken and he loses the ability to do his job, which requires the very diligent use of hands and fingers (He is a doctor). This man is seen in a desperate place, being forced to give up his job.

He is beaten up by a group of thieves and his last, precious possession is broken.

He is shown a dark being and told how this being is constantly trying to destroy the earth and all life.

He is almost killed and has emergency surgery attempted on him. It is an emotional scene.

His spirit projection appears out of his body, scaring the doctor in the room; he gives her guidance through the projection.

A woman is stabbed and falls hundreds of stories. She dies.

Many of the scenes are not graphically violent, but they are emotional, though, and sometimes very intense. The blood in the movie is not the focus because there is usually a more emotional side to the violence.

In the post-ending-credits scene, A good character turns bad, angry about how the main character dealt with the enemies. This is sad because the character is likeable and nice.

Rated PG-13 for sci-fi violence and action throughout, and an intense crash sequence
