Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that X-Men: Days of Future Past (the sequel to X-Men: First Class) is an exciting superhero film that's filled with fantastic special effects -- and bone-crunching battles. There's some blood -- as well as guns, stabbing, and hand-to-hand fighting -- though most of the action violence is of the large-scale carnage variety, including explosions and super-powered combat. Skeletons and corpses are seen. One scene shows a man's naked backside after he gets out of bed (a woman is lying next to him), and there's some swearing (one "f--k," plus "s--t," etc. ), drinking (the young professor drinks a lot, with bottles all around), and the "shooting up" of a serum that mimics drug use. As with all of the X-Men movies, this one explores issues of identity, fearing what's different, and embracing who you are, as well as the notion that killing isn't the answer to problems.
A man's naked backside is shown after he gets up from bed. There's a woman lying next to him. Some flirting at a bar. One blue, scaly female mutant sometimes walks around nude (though it looks as though she's wearing all-over body armor).
Plenty of action, including super-powered combat featuring all kinds of unusual powers. Lots of destruction and wreckage. People are thrown, stabbed, and shot at. There's an overwhelming sense of menace. Some scenes include shots of corpses and skeletal remains. Structures explode and get uprooted.
Language includes a few uses of words like "s--t," "a--hole," "hell," and "bloody," plus a single "f--k."
A good friendship can withstand most disagreements, especially when both parties can communicate well with each other. Killing isn't the answer to problems; instead friendship, support, unity, and hope can save the day. Also: Don't fear what's different, and embrace who you are.
Tie-in to vast quantities of related merchandise, plus some vintage signage for Pepsi, Mountain Dew, and a couple other brands.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Younger Professor X shoots up a serum that dulls his powers and helps him walk and seems to mimic the effect of heroin. Viewers see close-ups of the needle entering the vein. He also drinks a lot when we first see him, with lots of liquor bottles around. Other social drinking.
