Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this film includes comic-bookish violence: characters are repeatedly stabbed, shot, smashed, and variously injured (bloody gashes on faces or bodies, some -- on Wolverine -- healing themselves immediately), thrown against or through walls, exploded, burned, and frozen. Vehicles and buildings explode with fiery booms, the Golden Gate Bridge is lifted and crashed into Alcatraz Island, with violent shaking of humans driving on it. Human military units shoot weapons loaded with cure-bearing darts. In a flashback, a young boy tries to cut his wings off, causing bloody wounds. A passionate kiss leads to one character's death (off-screen), another passionate embrace leads to a violent clash. Mystique's blue suit looks painted on.
- Sexual Content
- Passionate kissing; one becomes an all-body (legs included) embrace; Rogue is visibly jealous of boyfriend's flirtation with another girl. One mutant uses her powers to undo a man's pants. Mystique is more or less naked (in a non-sexual way) at all times, though she's usually covered in blue, scaly skin. One scene shows her naked without that covering, but the crucial bits are covered.
- Comic-booky explosions, stabbings, shootouts, and fist/kick fights; brief scene of self-mutilation and upset as young boy tries to remove his "mutant" wings; Mystique assaults her police interrogators; police/military use guns with cure-carrying darts; characters explode into bits (including paternal Professor X, which might worry young viewers who are fond of him); Magneto breaks up the Golden Gate Bridge.; showdown at film's end includes fire, walls collapsing, electrocution; Jean sucks Wolverine's skin off him in patches; up-close stabbing.
- Fairly mild: "bitch," "hell," "ass," "dick," etc.
- Social Behavior
- Themes of friendship and group unity, as well as the celebration of difference.
- Tie-in to vast quantities of related merchandise.
