X-MEN: FIRST CLASS is the latest instalment of the X-Men franchise, showing the earliest days of the people who were later to become super-powered mutant heroes and villains. The film was classified '12' for moderate fantasy violence and one use of strong language.

The moderate fantasy violence is mostly seen in scenes of battles between various mutants, as they all use their special powers to try and prevail. In these unrealistic clashes the action is occasionally intense, but there is never any sight of visible injuries and very little bloodshed. The strongest moments of fantasy violence occur in two scenes: one where a mutant stabs a Nazi man in the hand, then uses his powers to make the knife fly into another's stomach, to try and get some vital information; and the other when a coin on its edge is seen to fly at and enter a villain's forehead, then exit the back of his skull, killing him. In the first scene there is a complete lack of any blood or clear sight of the knife penetrating any body parts, it is all merely implied. In the second, we see only a little blood on the coin as it exists, indicating the lethal nature of the attack. Whilst tonally quite strong, both of these moments are sufficiently restrained in detail to be permissible within BBFC Guidelines at '12A'/'12', which state 'Moderate violence is allowed but should not dwell on detail. There should be no emphasis on injuries or blood, but occasional gory moments may be permitted if justified by the context'. In another scene, a woman in a Nazi concentration camp is shot dead in cold blood, but this is only implied.

BBFC Guidelines at '12A'/'12' state that 'Moderate language is allowed. The use of strong language (for example, ‘fuck’) must be infrequent'. One use of strong language occurs in a brief and humorous moment as a hostile Wolverine snaps irritably at the two main characters.

There is also some implied nudity, seen in one shape-shifting mutant's natural alien form. In this form, while there is sight of 'naked' breasts, there is no detail as her whole body is covered with thick blue textured make-up. One scene takes place in a club where women dance for men, but there is no nudity seen.
