Captain America: The Winter Soldier

According to the posters and other publicity material, "Content advice: frequent moderate violence".


We went to see it yesterday, and that's a fair synopsis.

An even fairer synopsis would be:

"The entire plot of this film is explained through the medium of the punch-up; it is up to the viewer to try and work out who is beating up whom in any particular scene and why; expect the same protagonists to fight each other several times during the film with similar outcomes each time (both limp away to fight again another day). Includes occasional non-violent scenes which do little to advance the plot."

After half an hour or so, you sit there screaming (inwardly at least), "Just shoot him in the f-ing face already, and get on with the story!".
