Movie Review: 'Captain America: Civil War'

Parents need to know that "Captain America: Civil War" is the third "Captain America" installment and the 13th movie in the Marvel cinematic universe. It focuses on the growing tension between Steve Rogers/Cap (Chris Evans) and Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), which ultimately ramps up into an internal "war" between Avengers factions. It's about as violent as "Winter Soldier": There's a lot of fighting, and it's all even more fraught because many of the big battle scenes are between Avengers. Although even young viewers might believe none of the main characters is going to die, characters do get injured (one so seriously he seems dead for a moment), and there's a lot of anguish as old friends find themselves on opposing sides. Language is infrequent but includes "s--t" and "son of a bitch"; romance is limited to a quick kiss and a few longing looks and tender moments.

Rated: PG-13

Running Time: 146 minutes
