I've seen this movie 5 times and every time it never ceases to entertain me. The Avengers is filled with excellent action sequences, witty, laugh-out-loud humor, and positive role models. The only negative content this movie contains that I would like to point out for parents is listed in the following:
Language: There are a few uses of the cuss word a**, one use of the phrase son of a b****, and the rest is limited to a few uses of 'da**' and 'hell'. The rest of the movie is relatively cuss word free.
Violence: This is a superhero movie, so a lot of violence is expected and is delivered in this film. There are many sequences of the heroes fighting and blasting the bad guys, all of which isn't gory or bloody. There is one sequence where a character is killed by the main villain by being stabbed through the back with a spear. Some blood is shown. There is another scene where the villain kills multiple people by blasting and stabbing them with his weapon.
Positive role models: This movie is full of positive role models. They're superheroes for goodness-sake! From Captain America's philosophy of protecting others and doing what has to be done, to Thor's courage and determination to never give up, these are just some of the few role models that I believe need to influence the minds of our generation.
Positive messages: 'The Avengers' imposes many positive messages throughout the film. A few messages are 'having the courage to fight for what's right', 'sacrificing for the good of others', and 'working together despite each others differences'. These are just a few of the positive messages this film offers that I believe are a good influence on this generation.
Overall I'd give 'The Avengers' five stars. It's a good movie, and it's worth taking the family to see it. I would recommend that ages 11 and up would be appropriate for this movie, but it depends on your kid.
