Rating: PG-13, for intense sequences of violence, gunplay, and action throughout.
As is always the case in these effects-laden blockbusters based on comic books, the second Captain America movie is chock full of shootouts, martial arts butt kicking and the kind of prolonged, punishing brawls in which only physically altered specimens can engage. But beneath the well-staged mayhem, much darker themes – as well as the debate over freedom vs. security — are at work. This time, Cap (Chris Evans), with the help of Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), must uncover a conspiracy within the secret government agency S.H.I.E.L.D. There’s an incredibly violent car chase which causes a ton of damage involving their boss, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), as well as a climactic battle in the skies above Washington featuring massive machines that were built to take out millions of people. This is probably fine for mature tweens and older.
