What parents need to know

Parents need to know that The Wolverine is a fascinating look at the iconic X-Men character and how his past intersects with his present. It's a bleak journey that's often punctuated with violence -- the action scenes are ferocious and vicious, with weapons (guns, knives, arrows, claws, and more), explosions, and bloody hand-to-hand combat -- and some melancholy. Expect some swearing ("s--t" and one use of "f--k"), a bit of drinking, and some romance (one scene shows three underwear-clad characters kissing each other) between the unrelenting action sequences.
  • Families can talk about whether the violence in this movie has more impact than that of the earlier X-Men movies. Why or why not? Does the violence serve the story?
  • How are Wolverine's fights different than those of characters with different powers/abilities? Is he comfortable with his strength? How does he control it?
  • Why is Logan so tortured by his identity as Wolverine? Are his feelings understandable?
  • What did you think of Viper's character? Did her outfit seem practical for a supervillain? Would she have had the same impact if she wasn't so sexualized, or does that make her seem even more evil? Why?
