Swedes Say "Wolverine" Too Violent, Slap Film with Highest Rating 


"X-Men Origins: Wolverine" has been given a 15 classification by the Swedish Board of Film Censors because of its violent scenes.

15 classification means no one under the age of 15 will be allowed into theaters, EVEN with an adult!

According to Variety, Fox appealed the decision to Stockholm's Administrative Court of Appeal (Kammarratten) but on Thursday it backed the censors' ruling.

See, the U.S. frowns on sex, while Europeans shun violence! Ah, if we can just have a happy medium :happy

Oh, and FYI, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" is not that violent. The MPAA gave the film a PG-13 rating. But then, we're Americans...
