Celebrates the virtues of having family vs. Logan is a very complex superhero; he's often very selfish and prone to iffy habits drinking, etc. Extremely violent fighting; characters die. Claws slice and stab through flesh, skulls, etc. Characters are impaled; he are severed.
Guns and shooting. A young girl is involved in some of the fights. Disturbing footage of children mistreated in a lab. Main character saves an Adamantium bullet, perhaps for his own suicide. Characters in pain. Strong language throughout, including "f--k," "motherfr," "s--t," 'bulls--t," "a--hole," "ass," "goddamn," "d--k," and "hell.
Taco Bell's Chalupa is mentioned in dialogue. A character eats a bowl of Corn Flakes, box visible. A character eats from a tin of Pringles. The main character is said to be an alcoholic and is shown drinking several times. He buys illegal drugs mostly medicine for another character. Parents need to know that Logan is part of the X-Men series and is said to be Hugh Jackman 's final appearance as Wolverine. Unlike almost all other superhero movies except Deadpool , it's rated R, so expect a lot of very edgy material.
The main issue is the extremely strong, bloody comic book violence, including characters being sliced through flesh and skulls, shot, shown in pain, and killed. A young girl is involved in the fights, and there's disturbing footage of children being mistreated in a laboratory setting. Suicide is considered. Language is also really salty, with many uses of "f--k," "motherfr," "s--t," and more. A woman is shown topless, and the main character drinks frequently -- the possibility that he's an alcoholic or a "junkie" is discussed.
Despite the mature material, the movie -- which explores the importance of family -- is quite powerful and is a high point in the superhero genre. Expect teens to be very eager to see it.

He hides out in a desert compound with the nowsomething Professor Xavier Patrick Stewart , who suffers from chronic psychic fits, and albino mutant Caliban Stephen Merchant.
Their superhero days are over, and no new mutants have appeared in years. Then a woman arrives, asking Logan to look after a young girl named Laura Dafne Keen and take her to a safe place in North Dakota. Along the way possible spoiler alert!
And the men who created her are coming. The movie equivalent to Frank Miller's renowned comic book The Dark Knight Returns , this entry in the X-Men series is amazingly moving and grown-up, elevating the superhero genre to new heights. Jackman gives an astonishing performance as a hurting Logan; he's no longer Wolverine, just a man who's lived a hard, hard life and is looking at an unforgiving, grim future. Meanwhile, director James Mangold completely reverses the hatchet job he did on his last outing The Wolverine , here delivering a sad, fatalistic -- yet stunningly poignant -- look at regret and loss.
It's almost like a Western, filled with cracked, dusty American spaces. Shane is shown on TV. Characters wrestle with the landscape on the exterior while wrestling with their pasts, fears, and desires on the interior. It helps that we know Logan so well and that he's been so impossibly cool for so long. Now he becomes human for the first time, experiencing what a family might have been like, as well as a longing for reation.
The movie has action, but, rather than celebrating exhilaration, it's deliberately wearisome, shadowing the end of an era. Perhaps most profoundly, Logan achieves a sense of generations, of life changing, unknown, leaving some folks behind but trudging forever on. Families can talk about Logan 's violence. How does it compare to other, somewhat milder superhero movies? How does the fact that there's more blood affect the impact of what you're seeing?
Does exposure to violent media desensitize kids to violence? Is there a risk in making this kind of movie inappropriate for younger comics fans? What does the movie have to say about family? Why does Logan believe he doesn't deserve, or can't have, a family? How do drinking and drugs come into the story? How are they portrayed? Are they glamorized? Why does that matter?
