Violent, not for kids!

I was watching this movie with my brothers one night before bed. We loved the movie so far. Lots of fun until it came to this scene with Dr. Doom. It was totally violent from there. Dr. Doom choked a guy until his head exploded in his hazmat suit. Then Dr. Doom walks down the hallway choking and exploding more peoples heads. Note the walls are white so the blood could stand out while it splattered on the wall. It was just like a horror movie, lights flickering while he kills people. The other thing thats definitely creepy is the stretchy guy crawling to the vents. (Naked but not showing).The other scary scene was adding on to the Dr. Doom murdering spree was when he killed the fire and invisible girls Dad leaving him on the floor covered in scab like makeup.
