X-Men: The Last Stand
Source: Catholic News Service
In this third film based on the popular Marvel comic-book series, the U.S. government develops a "cure" for the mutants' condition, sparking a revolution as the misanthropic Magneto (Ian McKellen) declares war on mankind, amassing an army of maddened mutants, while others like Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Storm (Halle Berry) and a furry blue new ally (Kelsey Grammer) side with Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) who advocates peaceful coexistence. Fans of the series won't be disappointed as director Brett Ratner, taking over the reins from Bryan Singer, injects a fair amount of human emotion into what is essentially one big special-effects X-travaganza, resulting in entertaining escapist fare. Much stylized action violence, a sexually suggestive encounter, brief suggested nudity, and a few instances of crude language, limiting its appropriateness to older adolescents and up. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
