'Iron Man 3'
Suitable for: Mature tweens and older.
What you should know: Robert Downey Jr. returns as Iron Man. Still haunted by events in New York (dramatized in "The Avengers") and outraged when a close friend is injured in one in a series of bombings, he vows revenge on terrorists. You can see the movie in 3-D, IMAX or regular old 2-D.
Language: Relatively clean, with at least one use of profanity and a sprinkling of mild four-letter words.
Sexual situations and nudity: Couples are shown in bed, and there is a line about "going to town on each other" and a crude reference to breasts. A few kisses, too.
Violence/scary situations: This is where the movie earns its rating, with bombings that produce fires at such high temperatures that buildings are reduced to rubble and people are incinerated or reduced to shadows. Someone who is badly burned is shown in a hospital bed. Threats are issued against the White House. A house is attacked and destroyed. There are lots of fights, fires, explosions, people held captive and in pain, a child briefly in peril, a harrowing plane accident in which passengers are sucked out of the cabin, fatal falls and deadly shootings.
Alcohol and drug use: Adults drink, with at least one scene set in a bar.
