THE WOLVERINE is the latest instalment in the X-Men franchise, in which Wolverine meets a Japanese man whose life he saved during the destruction of Nagasaki and who now claims he can make him mortal. It is rated 12 for moderate action violence and one use of strong language.

The moderate action violence is mostly seen during battles between the mutant Wolverine and human and mutant opponents. The action is often intense, and includes scenes in which Wolverine's metal claws emerge from the back of his fingers and slash or stab his opponents. However, there is little sight of injuries and very little bloodshed. In some scenes Wolverine is cut and in one scene he removes a robotic parasite from inside his body. However, his wounds heal rapidly. There are also scenes in which characters are shot with arrows or commit ritual suicide. In some scenes a villainess spits poison in men's faces and their skin briefly blisters. These brief moments do not focus on injury.

There is one use of strong language during a scene in which Wolverine tells an opponent to "Go f**k yourself, pretty boy". There is also some moderate and mild bad language, for example, 'bitch', 'shit', 'bullshit', 'balls', 'assholes' and 'damn'.

No-one younger than 12 may see a 12A film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult. No-one younger than 12 may rent or buy a 12 rated video or DVD.
