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

Sex & Nudity

  • Male upper body nudity and objectification of muscles.
  • Jane and Thor kiss a few times. Somewhat passionate
  • Someone mentions that his old girlfriend "kept sleeping with other dudes."
  • 2 different times A news channel reports and shows that a nude man had appeared at the Stonehenge (his penis is pixelized, so no actual nudity is seen).

Violence & Gore

  • 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.


  • 2 s-words, a few d-words and a couple of OMG's.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Malekith And The other elfs Can be very scary to younger viewers.
  • The dark world can be a very scary place to younger viewers.
  • 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.

Violence & Gore

  • The final fight scene is very intense between Thor and Malekith, especially when Malekith is smashed to death by one of his own ships.
  • Thor's hand gets cut off. It is revealed to be a hologram, and it grows back.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Loki's death it's very emotional. In the end it seems that he is alive.
