Disney invited me to walk the red carpet of Infinity War for the #InfinityWarEvent. All opinions shared are 100% my own, including the fangirl excitement.
Wow, I am still reeling and processing everything from our EPIC Infinity War Event. Red carpet and after party fun were events that definitively I will not forget soon. Amazing everything! After being the first audience, including cast, to watch the film for the first time, I am replaying it in my mind. I have tons of questions, hypothesis and I can’t deny it was a roller coaster of emotions. The movie is rated PG13 and there is tons of humor in true Marvel fashion. But, is Avengers: Infinity War Movie Kid Friendly?
Is Avengers: Infinity War Movie Kid Friendly (kids under 13)?
Despite the rating, some parents do take younger kids to the movies. Fans might be debating if they should really take their littles to the movies to share the joy of Marvel. With this in mind, Infinity War is a movie ten years in the making. After being invested in 18 movies and different character stories, everything (including universes) collide into a massive story (and production) that will blow your mind. So, if you are wondering if the Marvel Infinity War movie is kid friendly, I have to start by saying that it really depends on your kid and the age of your children. Moreover, how exposed your kids are to the Marvel Universe will also determine if they are ready for this movie. Additionally, I would consider these points for kids under 8 without giving any spoilers:
Action – Violence:
There is tons of it. The highlight for me is to see powerful women in thrilling and action-packed scenes. There are battles and maybe Death is something you might need to prepare to address. Thanos is said to be the biggest villain ever created. He is huge, mean looking and has a “take no prisoners” attitude that could be the cause of some nightmares. On the flip side, the strife in the movie can point towards fighting towards our goals and being passionate about what we believe in.
Language and gestures:
there is no shortage of comedic moments and most are adult humor. Some scenes are quite intense and nothing but foul language will express or capture the moment. There are also and gestures that you might need to explain your children. I don’t recall any nudity, and there is kissing.
If your kids are not as invested in Marvel as I am, some of the intense moments might not affect them. That said, the thought of massive destruction, the end of the world as we know it, and superheroes in tough violent fights, might affect them very much. Relationships are put to the test and there is pulling at your heartstrings.
The Strange Things:
Dr. Strange was a hard movie for me as a parent. My little curious mind wanted to understand time travel and all the science behind that. That brought along tons of questions that I couldn’t answer properly (even with some research). It was good. His mind was churning and working. Unfamiliar things, strange occurrences, and disappearances might need some explanation from parents.
After being wowed by Stark innovation, Black Panther took it all to a whole new level. Infinity War will still bring us new technology and will spike STEM interest in little ones even though some concepts will be a total leap of faith on their part.
Length of the movie:
I welcome watching my favorite superheroes for two hours and a half. Little ones might get restless and tired before you are ready to go. Also, you DO NOT want to miss a single moment of the movie. Potty breaks might be an issue for this.
Watching Infinity War with Kids Under 13
Avengers: Infinity War lives up to its expectations and it is the big deal we thought it would be. My best suggestion is to have a date night. Go watch the movie and then make a final decision if you want to take the kids to see it. Believe me, you will need to watch it more than once to process this amazing movie that will have you on the edge of your seat at almost every scene. My guess is even to the second viewing you will not want to take the little Marvel fans. I can’t say any more because #ThanosDemandsYourSilence but I would not take sensitive or very curious kids under 13 to this film.
