Violent and Bloody Scenes
Moderate portrayals of violence with some details, are depicted, albeit justified by context.
The film contains several scenes of violence that involve shooting, slashing, punching, kicking, electrocuting, with some blood spurting depicted.
One of the stronger scenes depicts a man slashing another man in the face, leaving a thin red line in the middle of the victim's face, suggesting that it has been slashed in two. However, the scene is kept brief, and there is no further depiction of the victim's injury.
In another scene, a man is shown to be wrapped by an electronic whip and electrocuted to death.
As the depictions of violence are kept brief and do not contain strong details of injury, they can be suited for a teen audience.

Felt like leaving the cinema after the first 15 minutes if we weren't out in a group for a birthday celebration. No creativity, no individuality. Tried too hard to be a Marvel movie but fell short with each element a good movie should have. The sets and CG were rather poor for these past 2 centuries' standard. Patchy storyline/editing. My friends and i agreed that perhaps the best actor with the most natural acting was the old professor. Closed my eyes half the time but even the lines were so dull. Finally felt energised when the movie ended. 80% of the cinema crowd bolted from their seats and headed for the exits without seeing the post-credit scenes. I am not looking forward to the sequel even with the Chinese participation...
