We spent Sunday afternoon by watching movie at the mall nearby. My SIL was out of town and my husband worked; so it’s just me, my brother and his two kids. My teenager nephew wanted to watch Captain America: the Winter Soldier. It’s a sudden plan therefore I had no time to read the movie review earlier. My youngest niece is still ten years old; we’ll watch the Captain America movie if it suits her age.
When buying tickets, I and my nephew saw the cinema digital panel mentioned that the Captain America movie is suitable for all ages; so we bought four tickets. For me, this movie is interesting to watch as I like to see superhero movies with their fantasy actions. But I think it’s not an all-ages movie; it’s full of heavy violence. The blood is only a little, but the violence is complete. Lots of scenes of fighting, gun firing, car racing, car crashes, explosions, and others!
Once at home again, being curious, I visited commonsensemedia.org; it’s a reliable website for parents to obtain trustworthy required information, education and independent voice in a world of media and technology (movies, TV programs, books, games, websites, apps). You may refer to their reviews and age appropriate rates.
Common Sense Media says in a brief that Captain America:the Winter Soldier has heavy fantasy violence, but no sex scenes in the superhero sequel. The movie rate: Parent Guide – 13 years up. It’s a pity that the cinemas here (in my city) allow little kids to watch it. I heard crying kid during the movie. Sigh, perhaps the kid was very terrified. Parents should know that many younger kids still can’t differentiate between fantasy and reality.
When reviewing a movie, the review will include some subjects of the movie such as positive messages, positive role models, violence, sex, language, consumerism, and also drinking, drugs & smoking. Before taking your kids to watch this movie, you may read first the complete review at the website!
I link this post to Blue Monday. Captain America’s uniform is blue, but I also have another blue capture. Last Wednesday, the legislative general action in my country has been held. Lots of voting places have to be built first but we simply voted in a class room of the primary school nearby. I saw these blue planters inside the school area. They give nice touches to the concrete yard.
