Sci-Fi/Action: A mutant is sent back in time in hopes of stopping a present day war by preventing incidents in the past that ultimately led to that.
In the near future, both mutants and humans trying to help them are under siege by robotic sentinels programmed to find and kill them. With their numbers dwindling, X-Men leader Charles Xavier (PATRICK STEWART) sees no choice but to try a risky gambit of going back in time to try to prevent the series of events that lead to the eventual deployment of those sentinels.

But the mutant who can control such time travel, Kitty Pryde (ELLEN PAGE), warns that such a trip -- that only involves sending one's consciousness back into the younger version of themselves -- is highly dangerous. Thus, Wolverine (HUGH JACKMAN) volunteers to take the trip, what with his regenerative powers likely serving to protect him.

While Charles, his former adversary Magneto (IAN McKELLEN), Storm (HALLE BERRY), Rogue (ANNA PAQUIN), Iceman (SHAWN ASHMORE), Bishop (OMAR SY) and other mutants await the sentinel siege in the present, Wolverine wakes up in his 1973 self. His mission is to find younger Charles (JAMES McAVOY) and Magneto, a.k.a. Erik Lehnsherr (MICHAEL FASSBENDER) -- who were then adversaries -- and get them to help stop shape-shifter Raven/Mystique (JENNIFER LAWRENCE) from killing sentinel creator Dr. Bolivar Trask (PETER DINKLAGE). That past assassination led to her capture and the use of her DNA to enhance the sentinels into the nearly non-stop killing machines they became.

With the help of fellow mutants Hank (NICHOLAS HOULT) -- who can turn into the Beast -- and Peter (EVAN PETERS) -- who zips around at high speed as Quicksilver -- Wolverine, Charles and Erik try to find and stop Mystique before it's too late for them, both in the past and present.

If they're fans of the "X-Men" movie franchise or superhero/comic book movies in general, they probably will.
For sequences of intense sci-fi violence and action, some suggestive material, nudity and language.

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.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
