The Marvels Age Rating Parents Guide
Let’s take a look at what concerned parents need to know about the age ratings of the series before letting their younger children watch The Marvels.
Language: The Marvels contains some strong language, with profanity and curse words used sparingly. Lookout words include sh*t, d*mn, d*mmit, and hell.
Mature Content: The biggest lookout in the film, other than the foul language, is the intense sequences of violence in the film. Much like other Marvel movies/MCU movies, The Marvels is pretty much on par as far as the violence, intense scenes, and thematic elements goes. There is lot of fighting and characters are shown in hand-to-hand combat, using their super powers, and wielding weapons and guns. There is a scene that shows someone exploding in space, but it is not too graphic or bloody. There are some mature themes and adult themes that surround death, grief, loss, and sickness that may trigger some viewers. The film also includes lots of flashing bright lights, which may be a problem for those fans with photosensitivity issues.

However, the film is also a bit formulaic and predictable, and it doesn’t do much to break new ground in the superhero genre or the Marvel universe.
Brie Larson returns as Carol Danvers, the titular character of The Marvel. Larson gives a strong performance as Danvers, capturing the character’s strength, intelligence, and compassion. She is also believable in the action scenes, and has great chemistry and seem to work together well with her co-stars, who are also strong female characters.

In The Marvels, the colors are bright and vibrant, and the visuals and special effects are visually stunning. The film takes place in a variety of locations, from outer space to Earth, and the visuals are always impressive. The film’s director, Nia DaCosta, has said that she wanted to create a film that was “visually striking” and that would “push the boundaries of what’s possible in terms of visual effects.”
The Marvels doesn’t do much to break new ground in the superhero genre. It’s a fun and entertaining film, but it doesn’t do anything that we haven’t seen before.The film is funny. There are plenty of laughs to be had throughout the film. It is a bit formulaic and predictable. There are no real surprises in the film, and it follows the same beats as many other superhero films.
