Sex & Nudity

Violence & Gore

  • Frequent animated action violence throughout. Punches, kicks, shooting with laser guns, etc.
  • Lots of animated violence, fighting including guns. Extreme physical fights and fighting. Repititive action fighting and violence.
  • Very slight, but visible, infrequent blood on characters' faces during intense fight scenes.

Profanity

  • Very mild language like "Hell of a freaking lightshow," and "crap," are used. In one rap song, the line "You got a hat? It's for the ho's" can be heard, but it may be easy to miss.
  • Name calling and insults like "stupid," "fat," "the worst," "janky," "old," "broke," and "hobo."
  • One brief use of "jackass."

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • There are several deaths in the movie that could be intense/sad for viewers.
  • There is a scene that lasts less than five minutes with an animated spider crawling around, which can still be scary to those with arachnophobia.
  • There are at least two jump scares in this film that will startle most audience members.
  • This film is surprisingly much more violent than any other film in the "Spider-Man" franchise so far, even topping "Venom", because this film has non-stop action violence. While largely an animated comedy, it does contains some fairly dark scenes with character deaths and thematic elements.
  • Kingpin's massive size and intimidating appearance may unnerve and unsettle some, similar to Thanos in "Avengers: Infinity War".
  • The final battle is very intense.
  • Scene where a dark and frightening creature enters a space in search of another character. I believe for kids this could be very scary even though animated. It has a nightmarish/anxiety dream quality and the main character (teen) is frightened and hiding. The villain here looks scary and intimidating.

Spoilers

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

Violence & Gore

  • Early on in the movie Miles' universe's Peter Parker/Spider-Man is killed by Kingpin with a brutal slam in the chest and stomach. The immediate shot, from a distant, is Kingpin's tall body obstructing Parker's sprawled corpse, so nothing graphic is seen.
  • There are two moments where Kingpin has some blood coming out of his nose due to fighting Spider-Man.
  • Uncle Aaron is shot in the heart onscreen, slowly dying in an alley, while Miles breaks down crying. No blood or gore.
  • Near the end, Kingpin gets electrocuted by Miles. But he survives.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Aaron Davis (Prowler) gets killed by Kingpin. We then see Miles mourn for him, crying and then we see Miles' father mourn for Aaron as well. This scene is very sad and powerful.
  • The stakes in this film are quite high and the scene where the multiple dimensions are opened by kingpin is quite intense
  • The Peter Parker in Miles' universe is killed by Kingpin (he slams him fist down and crushes him) early in the movie. Quite emotional, shocking, and oddly brutal.
  • In the film there are two death scenes that can be shocking/intense especially for younger viewers
  • There's a story line about Miles uncle being a bad guy and I think this could be overwhelming and frightening for kids. Someone (an adult family member) is actually a villain working against them. Seems to be a mature storyline.
  • The scene where Miles finds out that Uncle Aaron is working for Kingpin can be shocking to some viewers.
