The opening narration states that evolution leaps forward every few millenniums to produce new forms. This film, other than this comment and a few violent scenes, including a comment about not fearing God from one character, manages to entertain and is suitable for the family.
It is a summer-like action flick with fights, explosions, the morphing of various mutants, and great special effects. How can you go wrong with Ian McKellen playing a villain, and Patrick Stewart playing a good guy? Hugh Jackman plays his role as the powerful Logan, also known as Wolverine, very excellently. He chews up the scenery and plays edgy very nicely. The violence is comic-book style and there aren’t many if any truly scary moments.
The mutants are ostracized by others but are determined to help others which is a nice theme in this film. Of course not every single mutant feels that way, which makes this an interesting story to watch.<.p> We would encourage parents to discuss the evolution comments with their children. Otherwise, this is a nice good vs. evil story and we recommend it for ages twelve plus, and gladly award the movie our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal.
