Thor is shown shirtless

Characters kiss.

During a party, one of Thor's associates lingers suggestively with two women, one of whom sits on his lap.

Someone mentions that his old girlfriend "kept sleeping with other dudes."

Eric runs naked around Stonehenge and is documented by news cameras. (His midsection is pixelated).

Battles are huge and relentless. In the flashback showdown between Malekith and Thor's grandfather, Bor, we see tons of flashing swords and spears and laser-like guns and reality-twisting grenades. (That latter weapon seems to suck victims into a vortex and fold them up.) A field is littered with the corpses of Asgardians and dark elves. Other melees feature the same allotment of weapons, which are always used to devastatingly lethal effect. Spaceships destroy buildings, crash and sometimes do both simultaneously causing untold (unseen) casualties.

A rock monster gets crushed by Thor's hammer. A demon-like creature forces a man's head into a force field, and we can hear his screams.

A bad guy loses both of his arms, and a good guy appears to have his hand sliced off. (We see the bloody stump.)

An evil henchman is swallowed almost whole by a strange and fearsome creature, and several more are crushed by someone throwing a car. In one melee, Thor snaps a bad guy's neck.

A demi-god and a demon get stabbed through the chest (at the same time with the same blade). A woman is run through with a sword. Someone gets pounded in the face. The Aether is a violent substance.

When Jane has the stuff in her system, anyone who threatens her gets blown back with a mini-explosion. The substance is used to assail, toss and tumble Thor and others.

The final fight scene is very intense between Thor and Malekith ,especially when [Spoiler]Malekith is smashed to death by one of his own ships.

One s-word is fully said, another gets interrupted. We hear two or three uses each of "Damn" and "Hell"; three or four uses of the word "God."

Scientist Eric Selvig apparently takes a great deal of medicine to help keep his brain on the straight and narrow. When a couple of people get him released from an asylum-like establishment, they give him a bagful of prescriptions; once he learns what's happening, though, Eric expresses relief that the world is crazier than he is and dumps the bag into a trash can.

Frigga's death is upsetting, and the entire scene is emotionally intense and sad.

The magical weapon known as the Aether takes over its users' bodies and appears as an ominous reddish-black cloud entering through individuals' eyes and mouths (changing their eye colors) and sometimes being seen moving under their skin; this may be disturbing to younger viewers.

Rated PG-13 for sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence, and some suggestive content
