Violence & Gore


The Winter Soldier is a harsher, sometimes bloodier movie than The First Avenger, with near-constant action-violence.

Captain America tangles with dozens of bad guys. Some he mows down in quick succession taking them out with a fling of his shield (which we see strike with painful realism) or pushing them off ship decks to fall into the ocean. Others take more effort, and fights can be filled with punches, kicks, flying leaps and knockout smacks. Cap suffers more than bumps and bruises too: he's repeatedly shocked with strange Taser-like devices, shot several times, stabbed in the shoulder and outright brutalized in one hard-to-watch showdown.

Scads of people are hit, kicked, shot, stabbed, thwacked with heavy objects and caught in explosions. Huge warships fire on each other and crash into buildings. We see stitched up wounds and bloody abrasions. Limbs are broken. Someone gets grotesquely skewered in the hand. Cars, trucks and planes crash. Elevators fall. Natasha guns down several people, lassos one unfortunate man around the neck and pushes a guy off a high building (to scare him). Innocent cleaning woman is gunned down in cold blood. Not-so-innocent bigwigs are electrocuted/burned to death by their own deadly devices. One unfortunate is thrown into the side-rotors of a small plane, making both the man and the plane explode. A building collapses on top of folks. An occupied and bulletproof SUV is shot at so many times it looks like a motorized block of Swiss cheese. Some guy is thrown in a car and smashed by a truck.

There is a huge amount of shooting/explosion in the film. Several men are gunned down, heavy weapons like mingun or grenade launcher do lots of damage. A huge amount of both good and bad guys die.

An important character is shot down and is presumed to be dead for more than half of the film. We even see him dying on the hospital's surgery table. When we later find out he is alive, he talks about how big amount of injuries (broken bones, injured intestines etc.) he suffered.

We hear that the Winter Soldier has been behind more than two-dozen assassinations in the last 50 years. And S.H.I.E.L.D. is being used to try to eradicate millions of people.

This movie is the MARVEL equivalent of the Bourne series due to the large level of PG-13 violence and political plot.



Very few uses of mild obscenities, but even these are obscured by loud explosions or sound effects, so really there is close to None.


Chris Evans and Robert Redford's characters drink champagne occasionally, in between the action.

There are several intense scenes throughout the film, where the characters are in danger. The film is generally darker in tone than the rest of the MCU Phase 2 films.

Many important characters die

This film has a suspenseful political side that is dark and has connections to Hydra which makes it a more mature film.

There are many traitors.

This movie is strongly violent for a PG-13 movie and too intense for kids. It is recommended for 13+
