However, I was a few days away from 14 when X2 came out and I remember having a huge nerdgasm when Wolverine finally went Beserk. It's the closest we've seen to him really letting lose in the films so far.
It always depends on the kid. Some kids have no problem with the violence, others get bothered by it. In my friend's case, he knew it would upset his son at the time, so he didn't take him. He did love the movie, he just didn't think his son was ready for it. I'm sure he's seen it by now.

When I was 7, the Nazis-melting scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark scared the crap out of me (I saw it in the theater). Today that's one of my favorite movies. Actually, I was fine with it by the time it was on cable.

”We live in times when hate and fear seem stronger. We rise and fall, and light from dying embers: remembrances that hope and love last longer. And love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside."
