Our 6 year old found bits a little scary but enjoyed the movie. One son of a bitch and one 'piss off' mention but otherwise language is fine. He got scared when Lokie stabbed someone in the eyeball although you don't see anything, and when another person is stabbed but these were the only two incidents. There is a lot of fighting and peril but you don't see any injuries. Enjoyable for adults and children over 6 or 7

A lot of action. But on the bright side, some episodes will show some positive messages.

There is a lot of superhero action,but some episodes the heroes work together to save the world. A lot of violence, but kids will be able to pick up a few positive messages such as teamwork and friendship.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (6 ):

Little has changed in the Avengers' job description between Earth's Mightiest Heroes and this follow-up Marvel-inspired series, so precious little will come as a surprise. They're still tasked with protecting the planet from a host of powerful foes, and they still stumble under the demands of teamwork from time. Most evident is the role some of their larger-than-life egos play in their struggles with working alongside each other after a hiatus that saw most of them flying solo and calling their own shots.

If you're familiar with the Avengers' previous work -- or nearly any superhero story, for that matter -- then you know what to expect with regard to the show's prevalent but fantasy-based violence. If the impact of this kind of content isn't a concern for your kids, then they'll be sure to enjoy the complex relationships and exciting adventures of this diverse team of heroes.
