Sex & Nudity

  • Hulk is briefly seen nude from behind, showing buttocks but nothing more. Upon seeing naked Hulk, Thor quips, "That's in my brain now."
  • The Grandmaster having orgies is referenced but never shown. It is said he uses a ship for "orgies." In the post-credit scene, you do see him exiting a ship with two scantily clad women.
  • Thor, Valkyrie, and Bruce Banner must fly a ship through a cosmic storm called the Devil's Anus. Thor says "we'll escape through the Anus"

Violence & Gore

  • Thor fights off devilish hordes and runs from a dragon. Its head is severed and a very large amount of green slime is spewed onto onlookers.
  • Some of these scenes feature no blood to little blood.
  • Large battle at the end contains many skeletal soldiers being killed by swords, machine gun fire, and lightning. One enemy is beheaded.
  • A man is captured, beaten, threatened to be eaten.
  • Carlo is brutally melted by a rod. He turns towards Thor and asks for help. After he melts, Thor complains about the smell, implying that it stinks.
  • A character falls out of a plane and violently lands on the ground. This is used in a comedy way
  • A man convulses violently after getting shocked by a device. This happens a couple of times.
  • Thor and Hulk have a massive brawl in an arena, and both punch and slam each other around, knocking each other into walls and hitting each other with weapons. At one point Hulk beats on Thor repeatedly, until he charges up with electricity and blasts and beats Hulk several times.
  • Typical Marvel violence
  • At one point in the film, Hela digs her elbow into Thor's back (there is a spike protruding from it). This causes a squishing sound indicating the piercing of her elbow into Thor's back. She later removes it causing another squishing sound, and then proceeds to choke Thor. This is brief. No blood is shown. Can be scary for children.
  • Thor loses an eye.

Profanity

  • 3 uses of shit and damn
  • son of a bitch is said

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Several characters are seen drinking beer.
  • A character is shown to be very drunk numerous times, admits to drowning out their misery with constant drinking
  • Thor drinks some beer while talking with Doctor Strange in one scene.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A character is melted and screams during the process in obvious pain. This is somewhat disturbing.
  • A devil monster character is shown made entirely of flames. he has devilish hordes and a large dragon that fight the hero. (only frightening for young children)
  • A man is expected to behead a young woman in front of a crowd. At the last moment, the woman is saved, but the scene is emotionally intense.

Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • In a scene Thor loses an eye because of Hela and spends a good 20 minutes of the film - 5 or 6 scenes, some close up - with the wound visible. This is fairly disturbing, but not graphic though, as the wound is clearly make-up.
  • A woman mows down a large group of soldiers in a stylized battle sequence. Three or four supporting characters are killed by thrown knives, one impaled.
  • The main villain slaughters an army of female warriors on the backs of winged horses in a stylized flashback sequence. Both horses and women are seen falling from the sky injured or dead. The camera pans over a shadowy battlefield strewn with dead warriors with blades through their chests. No gore, just a sense of sorrow or dread. This may be especially upsetting for young animal lovers.
  • Two characters recognizable from previous Thor movies are killed with a sudden sword through the chest. It's also worth mentioning that Hela uses sudden swords several times in the movie.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The Hulk screams and thrashes around violently after seeing a video clip. It may scare some younger viewers as they may not understand what is happening.
  • Thor fights his sister Hela, and she cuts out his eye. Happens very quickly but may shock young viewers.
  • Asgard getting destroyed in order to defeat Hela can be a little bit sad for some viewers, but the film has lots of comedy
