Lesser sequel is still entertaining

Okay, it’s good, and it really does play a big part in the MCU timeline, but it’s not as good as the first, so don’t get you hopes up like I did. The violence wasn’t that bad, they used a certain word that common sense left out which was not good at all, there was some innuendo which will fly over kid’s heads, but for me I was understanding it perfectly which wasn’t good either, and there are some mentions of Black Widow’s sterilization, which she tells Bruce about. Over all it’s entertaining and you sort of have to watch it to understand other films, but just don’t go into it thinking that it’s going to be the greatest thing ever.
