QUICK TAKE:
Action: An ailing, middle-aged mutant reluctantly agrees to transport a young mutant -- who's being pursued by those who wish to do her harm -- across the country to a sanctuary he doesn't believe exists.
PLOT:
It's been twenty-five years since the last natural-born mutant came into the world and the once mighty X-Men are a mere shadow of their former selves. In particular, Logan (HUGH JACKMAN), a.k.a. Wolverine, is seemingly being poisoned by the Adamantium placed long ago in his body and his self-healing powers are waning. He makes ends meet in Texas near the Mexican border as a limo driver, all while caring for his former mentor and X-Men leader, Charles Xavier (PATRICK STEWART), a.k.a. Professor X, who's suffering from old age and some degree of senility. With the help of former mutant tracker Caliban (STEPHEN MERCHANT), Logan has Charles hidden away on a remote farm where he's heavily medicated to prevent his powerful telepathy, that he can no longer control, from wreaking havoc on the world.

In doing so, Logan wants to keep a low profile and thus wants no part of a former nurse, Gabriella (ELIZABETH RODRIGUEZ), asking him to help transport a young girl, Laura (DAFNE KEEN), out of harm's way to someplace called Eden located in North Dakota. It turns out the nurse worked at the biotech company Transigen that was breeding children -- including Laura -- from DNA taken from various mutants to create powerful soldiers. Now that the program is completed, the children were to be put to death, but Gabriella and others smuggled some of them out. When Logan realizes part of him is in Laura -- in that she also possesses retractable metal claws and the ability to heal abnormally fast just like him -- and that Gabriella has been murdered, he reluctantly agrees to transport the girl.

But he must contend with his own ailing body, Charles not being much better, and a Transigen goon, Pierce (BOYD HOLBROOK), who wants to find Laura and exterminate her and the other mutant kids created by Transigen and their lead director, Dr. Zander Rice (RICHARD E. GRANT).

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of the X-Men films and characters, they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For strong brutal violence and language throughout, and for brief nudity.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
