Too violent? When I was a kid, I watched "Cowboy and Indian Movies" and Tom & Jerry Cartoons. Is this "detached" violence, or gritty bloody stuff?

Depends if he is your first child no way. If he is your sixth child he should be watching rate R movies by now.

It's definitely not very bloody. The most blood that you see is the traditional Harrison Ford lip or forehead bleeder.

It's amazing that these guys are getting plumbed and thrown through buildings but remain in near pristine condition. Even their hair remains neatly feathered. The biggest injury is probably Thor having to run his cape through the wash because it got a bit of debris on it.

I think the worst language in it was Fury saying "stupidass."

Personally, I don't think 6 year olds "get" this kind of stuff.

Blood and swearing aside, there is a lot of imagery that might leave an impression on them or give them nightmares (alien army, battle scenes, the hulk - stuff they are not used to processing).

When my kids were younger I tried not to push stuff like that on them until they were older.

Violent and aggressive - not bloody. Barely any swearing, and nothing that really alludes to sexuality (unless you count the audience talking about Black Widows skin-tight suit when she stands against a lit room).

i'd get my wife w/ the masters in early child development on here but she'd start a rant like you wouldn't believe. roy's right, they cannot process this stuff and often end up obsessed- which is not a sign that they love it but are terrified by it.

Yeah, that was the point I was gently trying to make. While there is no blood or swearing, the forms, ideas and concepts are mind blowing (not always in a good way) and out of their ability to place in reality.

Their minds are not developed enough to be able to make sense of this stuff and you start triggering all sorts of stuff that I believe shouldn't be triggered.

I get pretty damn upset when I see adults taking their kids to movies that shouldn't be for kids.

As tough as it was, and I really wanted to expose my kids to everything that I loved, I had to wait for them to mature and grow up before I shared stuff like the Avengers movie with them.

My youngest is now 10 going on 11 this year and she saw the most stuff that she shouldn't have but being the youngest and always tagging along with the oldest it was tough to prevent.

Still, we did our best.

I guess I'm the bad father in here!

When I was a kid, my dad let me watch Conan, Alien, Jaws, all of those movies before I was 10. Depending on who you ask, it didn't screw me up much lol

My son has seen almost all the superhero movies in the last couple years and loved them all \(shrug\)
