Full of action, peril and conflict, this film also offers great lessons on forgiveness and the ability to make positive choices no matter what the circumstances. Violence will be the greatest concern for parents. Dozens of physical confrontations in a semi-fantasy environment result in people being thrown through glass, against walls and pushed into moving subway trains. Two stabbings show bloodied blades protruding from bodies. A murder is depicted in flashback a couple of times, but the impact of the gunshot is not shown. A fantasy character, who is impervious to bullets, is shot many times. However, consequences for the violence are played out with characters reconciling with one another and recognizing how their actions are affecting them negatively. A couple of moments of mild sexual innuendo and a few kisses between male/female couples are included. Language includes a few mild expletives. One stressed character takes a swig from a bottle of liquor and Champaign is served for a celebration. As well, Spiderman’s boss—J. Jonah Jameson—smokes his trademark cigar.
