Wolverine a Fascinating Study of the Man behind the Mutant
- Friday, July 26, 2013
CAUTIONS (may contain spoilers):
- Drugs/Alcohol: Some social drinking and scenes taking place in a bar
- Language/Profanity: One f-bomb, a single use of a--hole, a few instances of sh-- and he--, plus a singular exclamation of God's name.
- Sex/Nudity: Jean shows up regularly in Logan's dreams, and she's wearing a white negligee that exposes cleavage. They kiss on several occasions. It’s implied that Logan and Mariko sleep together, but nothing is shown but kissing. Mariko's ex-fiancé is briefly shown being entertained by two women dressed in very skimpy attire. Viper wins over the affections of several men and when she kisses them, she poisons them. We briefly see Wolverine's backside in a non-sexual context.
- Violence: While mostly bloodless, the action scenes can be very intense and realistic-feeling, especially for younger viewers. People die and are injured in all sorts of gruesome ways, by gunshot, sword, stabbing, strangulation, suicide, Wolverine's claws, you name it. Wolverine's transition from mutant to human is a bit disturbing, as is pretty much anything that Viper does. There are also lengthy action sequences that involve stylized sword-play and a gory moment where Wolverine attempts to remove a defect from his own heart by cutting his own chest, reaching in and grabbing it out. A bear is shot with an arrow, and we see it whimpering as it's slowly dying. Wolverine takes pity and puts it out of its misery.
