Not all Marvel films are created equally. If you’re a parent, your ideal situation would be to screen every film before your children see it. But if you’re like my children, they want to get to the theater this weekend… and I can’t blame them. I mean, tons of Avengers in one film? It might be too good to be true!
I do recommend reading no spoiler reviews first. You might find them very helpful. You don’t want to bring your 8 year old superhero lover to a film, only to find out there are curse words being said every three seconds. You never know! (You can read my list of 3 Things To Do Before Seeing Avengers: Infinity War.)
Always use your best judgment. I brought my 13 year old to see Avengers Infinity War. I would let my (almost) 9 year old see it. Any younger and children might not stay interested, due to the length of the film. It’s almost 3 hours from start to finish. And that’s after the credits have rolled and the extra scene has played.
Is Avengers Infinity War For Kids?
PROFANITY: There is some “adult” language in Avengers Infinity War, but nothing too bad. I heard: hell, shit, damn it, douchebag and ass hole. There is one reference to Jesus that might catch you off guard. Someone does raise a middle finger and another will say something along the lines of “Thanos’ chin looks like a ball sack.” I won’t disagree.
SEXUAL CONTENT: There’s no nudity in Avengers Infinity War. There is a kissing scene.
VIOLENCE: I think you’ll see more violence in Infinity War than in Captain America: Civil War. You’ll see blood, explosions, stabbings, arms cut off and lots of “things” that are destroyed/killed. There are “ugly” creatures/monsters that appear at certain points.
