PG-13 | | Action, Sci-Fi
The early years of James Logan, featuring his rivalry with his brother Victor Creed, his service in the special forces team Weapon X, and his experimentation into the metal-lined mutant Wolverine.
Young James Logan (on-screen credit as simply "James") was portrayed by as yet unknown pop star Troye Sivan, in his film debut, four years before signing his first professional recording contract with EMI Australia/Universal Music.
Young Victor Creed:
You're always sick.
Young James Logan: You were sick when you were my age.
(at around 1h 15 mins) After Wolverine jumps from of the plane near Three Mile Island he takes some violent bounces across the water. Yet when he shows up moments later in the facility he is completely dry and his clothes are unscathed.
For the X-Men trilogy, when the 20th Century Fox logo fades away, the 'X' in the logo stays for a second longer before it also fades away. For this film, the 'X' disappears with the rest of the word.
German theatrical version was cut by the distributor before submission to the FSK to secure a "Not under 16" rating (the killing of the old couple is shortened, you don't see Wolverine igniting the gasoline). Ironically, the uncut version, submitted for the home video release, was rated "Not under 16" as well, thus rendering the cut theatrical version completely unnecessary.
