MPAA Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action

Sex & Nudity

  • You briefly see a man pull down his trousers mocking Captain America. Dancing ladies in very skimpy outfits.
  • Captain America kisses a woman (she pulls him in).
  • Male upper body nudity and minor sexual objectification of male muscles.
  • Very mild - There is some flirting and the occasional kiss, as well as romantic tension between two of the main characters.
  • One Nice romantic scene

Violence & Gore

  • Captain America doesn't hesitate to kill the enemies.
  • A man is shot and you see a splurt of blood.
  • This is a fair bit tamer compared to every other MCU movie out there. It is also the least bloody.
  • When Steve holds his signature vibranium shield for the first time, he shows it to Agent Carter. She shoots at him out of anger and jealousy after she caught him kissing another woman earlier. Everyone including Steve is scared of Carter, she sighs about how strong the shield is and walks away.
  • A spy bites into a cyanide pill and dies, foaming at the mouth.
  • Audiences see loads of fisticuffs, firefights and explosions far too many to detail here. And unlike some superheroes, Cap doesn't hesitate to kill his enemies, since he considers himself a soldier.
  • Schmidt guns down a civilian, spattering bright-red blood. We also see a small exit wound in the man's back. Another unfortunate ends his screen time in the blades of a propeller. (There's a brief blood spray visible.) Folks fall from great heights, and one man is sucked into a weird energy vortex. Another is crushed by part of a building, and we see a bit of blood on his head.
  • Those are modern-tinged gory scenes in the middle of a movie that otherwise has the vibe of a 1940s serial: The body count is high, but the squirm factor low as scores of characters are simply zapped out of existencewith a bloodless blue poofvia futuristic weapons powered by the cube.
  • Steve suffers some serious pain while being injected with the serum, as his screams are heard.


  • "H*ll" is used at least 5 times throughout the movie.
  • Captain America says "Who the hell are you" twice
  • There is a muffled use of "shit" at one point.
  • Senator says "Jesus. Give that kid a sandwich"
  • "Son of a bitch" is said in an admiring way.
  • "*ss" is said

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A man is shown smoking a cigar.
  • A scene takes place in a bar and many people drink and make reference to alcohol.
  • A man complains that because of a medical treatment he can no longer become drunk.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The red skull's appearance which is a skeletal red face could scare children
  • The action sequences are intense; the Red Skull is designed to frighten.
  • At one point, Steve in an enclosed chamber undergoing an experimental treatment with intense radiological exposure. Steve screams in pain, but immediately insists he can take the treatment and demands that the experiment continue. There is considerable sparking of electrical equipment and Steve is silent at the end, but he is revealed to be fine with the body enhancement treatment a complete success.
  • A short shot of a man being thrown into a propeller and blood splattering.
  • Many people are disintegrated. This could frighten some.

Violence & Gore

  • Red skull rips his mask off revealing his mutilated face, this could be disturbing to younger audiences
  • Captain America is on top of an escape pod and is fighting a HYDRA goon and kicks him into the propeller. There is a small amount of blood spray. This references Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Near the end of the movie, Steve makes the difficult decision to crash-land the Red Skull's plane when he cannot find any other way of keeping it from automatically firing its weapons and destroying the entire East Coast. As he goes down, he is talking on the radio to his love, Peggy. She is seen crying after the transmission cuts out. Extremely emotionally tense.
