Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this often funny action movie -- based on a comic book series from 2003-06 -- is filled with comic book-style violence, with lots of guns, knives, slo-mo fight scenes, and explosions. The movie centers on a group of ex-soldiers who are betrayed and left for dead; part of their motivation is problem-solving and part is revenge. The movie features strong, but infrequent language (one use of "f--k" and several uses of "s--t"), and a non-explicit, though highly stylized sexual scene. Without any huge teen-appeal stars (aside from Avatar's Zoe Saldana), the movie will mostly appeal to die-hard comic book fans and action junkies.

Sexual Content

Two main characters have sex; the scene shows them kissing and removing clothes in a glossy, slow-motion scene, and then lying together under the covers afterward, but no nudity and nothing explicit. Zoe Saldana wears a series of very sexy outfits. Several women in bikinis appear as "window dressing" and/or playthings for certain characters. One character wears a suggestive t-shirt depicting a woman eating a hot dog. Chris Evans changes clothes in an elevator and is caught by four women, who gaze at him approvingly. We also see a shadow puppet play of two godzillas having sex.

Violence

The movie is filled with extreme comic book violence, including fistfights, kung fu fights, shootouts, knife fights, bullet wounds, blood spurts, dead bodies, and giant explosions. (One explosion is more like an implosion that wipes an entire island off the earth.) The villain is an unscrupulous arms dealer who is looking for the latest destructive technology -- "snukes" -- to sell to the highest bidder. Most notably, the bad guy blows up a helicopter filled with kids (only seen from the outside). There are also brief images of a cockfight (a gory gambling event in which two roosters are placed in a ring and made to fight one another to the death).

Language

"F--k" is heard once, and "s--t" is used several times, though language in general is fairly infrequent. Other words include: "hell," "Oh my God," "anal," "balls," "dick," "ass," "son of a bitch," and "Goddamn it."

Social Behavior

Though there are some examples of triumphing over the odds and teamwork, the violence of the movie is constant and lighthearted -- sending some unrealistic and potentially confusing messages about weapons and violence.

Consumerism

A helicopter crashes into a huge Dunkin' Donuts sign.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Clay and Aisha drink in a bar, including downing a shot of tequila in one gulp. Aisha brings a bottle of liquor to Clay's room, but they don't drink it. Later, characters open a bottle of champagne and drink.
