Parents beware!!! Un-necessarily violent scene for a 12.,
This review is from: X-Men Origins: Wolverine [DVD] (2009) (DVD)
An ok action film, but why have two elderley innocent people graphically shot dead by a sniper in a 12 rated film??!!
That scene could still have worked without the two characters dying in such a graphically shocking way. For example they could have had their farm blown up and escaped un-hurt with no less impact on the story line.
I'm no Daily Mail reader and I have no issue with violence in the right context. e.g. a comic book character getting injured/ blown up in the line of make beleive action, in a 12 rated film....but the graphic death scene in this film served no artistic or creative purpose apart from to shock un-necessarily.
I'm not a preacher, but parents beware if you think your child might be affected by watching something such as that!
Totally un-necessary in this film!
